It is very small. There are not very many academic opportunities such as AP/IB or clubs/societies. The food is more often than not gross. There is not very much diversity when it comes to race/religion/politics, as most around Meridian are middle-class white conservatives. Some of the teachers are amazing and really care about you, but others have been there so long, they really don't try anymore. If you are boy, the sports program is great! For girls, not so much. The same could be said about the relationship between Varsity/Junior varsity players.

I've been attending Meridian my whole life and I've always loved the teachers. We've had so many who truly care about the students. Our counselor, Karen Robinson, is absolutely wonderful and takes an interest in the students. I would like for Meridian to develop more school spirit and have some more parent involvement. I believe we could have better facilities and resources if we had a larger budget, however.
The teachers at Meridian High School are really good at what they do. Mr. Brigham, one of the best teachers we have teaches math, and by the end of the year she is always able to make every student who is enrolled in her classes understand, she even helps students who are not in her class. There is two other teachers, Mrs. Carpenter and Mrs. Adams, who always care about the "little guys" at our school, they have that amount of care that makes the very best teachers. Overall, there is a very good relationship between students and teachers. Although, the relationship between students and peers is not the kind that is needed for a happy high school.
