My school is a okay school. It's located in a small town where everyone knows your name and your secrets. My school's biggest downfall is that at points they do not help the student get anywhere in life. Once we graduate we are on our own and clueless.

Merrill is a very welcoming school. My senior class has become like one big family. I wouldn't change the school one bit. It is evolving and getting better each year.
I loved being a part of Merrill High School. It's located in a small, tightly bound community where "everybody knows your name". I've made some great friends at my school and I enjoyed the atmosphere immensely. The only downfall was that AP classes were not available during my high school years. That being said, I wouldn't change anything else about my school.
