I liked the small town atmosphere, everyone knew you and your family, however, sometimes that was a burden. Not every teacher is respectful and knows how to leave personal things at the door, so if your family had/has a bad reputation you could be stuck with that as well. The faculty was focused more on test scores, than helping students learn information to help them succeed in their future.

MHS is a very average school, the teachers are okay at best, the class options are very basic, the students are not very open to change and aren’t the nicest people in the world. You can’t really trust anyone cause it’s every man for himself. Not a lot to look forward to, it’s just real boring all the time.
I would say that Merrill Highschool is pretty much an average school. I’m a sophomore currently at Merrill Highschool and I think it is a pretty much a good school. It’s saftey is alright and the College readiness is awesome they have a lot for students to chose from. There is also a lot of fun and exciting club and activities though their sports don’t have many option they are pretty much average. But their food it poor not enough food.
