Great school! Many options as far as extra-curricular activities; although more support for non-sport clubs would be great. Students are given the ability to participate in making decisions related to changes affecting them and are encouraged to participate in the organization of school events. The administration and staff are wonderful and willing to work with those who need help!

Merrimack High School is a fine school with good people. We are a small school and my class specifically only has 270 people. As a senior now the teachers are much more helpful and listen to you better. As for my other three years, I have always seen as a kid and not ready for anything. We do have high security and some strict rules. Although the school is small it makes us all pretty close. juniors and seniors are all friendly and same with the sophomores and freshman. I would say the best part of this school is our school spirit at any game. Doesn’t matter if it’s football, soccer, field hockey, or even golf, you always have someone cheering for you.
