Since starting Merritt Academy in Kindergarden the school has expanded a lot, many things for the better. The teachers and staff are always there to look out after the students and know them on a personal level. If there is something wrong they are always willing to be an ear to talk to if you need to get something off of your chest. Not only that in the past few years the academics have excelled as well as the sports programs. This helps the students prepare for college and learn about what is out in the real world. Not only does the school teach us about the core activities it teaches us life long morals and skills that we will need in society. Out of all these good things something that is improving, but could be better is the technology.

Merritt is an excellent school! Although it is a charter school, it still offers a an amazing "public school" feel.
I went to Merritt Academy my whole school career and I wouldn't change that for the world. It's a nice small school environment that grows every year. There is lots of personal one on one with the teachers and the office staff has always been so kind. It's a perfect school for people like me who don't like being in environments with too many people where you only know a few people. Everyone knows everyone there, which yes could be quite annoying at some points, but its also perfect because it's like you always have a friend somewhere on campus. I would recommend Merritt Academy to anybody looking for a good school.
