Overall the school is pretty good. The only negative side is that the school primarily focuses on sports/physical activity rather than actual curriculum.

When considering the size of Merino Schools (110 high school students), the amount of extracurricular opportunities offered is great. The clubs offered are: Family Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA), Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA), Future Farmers of America (FFA), National Honor Society (NHS), student council, choir, and band. In addition, Merino offers these sports: football, volleyball, cross country, basketball, wrestling, baseball, and cheerleading. The club advisers are all pretty awesome. They all put amazing effort into their organizations and work hard to make them a great place for students to grow. The athletic groups are also good: athletes are pushed not only to excel on the court/field/track/mat, but they're pushed to excel in the classroom. Merino has an array of club/organization options that's awesome for a school of it's size.
We have FCCLA, DECA, and FFA, where we have great success. There isn't after school activities besides sports. We have a wellness committee, as well as Student Council. No others organizations come to mind.
