Merritt High School is an Apple School, which I find very helpful. Almost all of our assigned work in on an IPad or Macbook. The teachers at Merritt High School are very involved with their students; They will go out of the way to make sure a student understands the content of the course and that each student receives any help that is asked for.

Very positive. Love the small close knit family environment! Community has great involvement and provides support for all. Each student has a special place to shine.
My favorite thing about Merritt High is it doesn't feel like a school. It feels like a family, in everything. In all of my classes there is great chemistry and smiles all around. Our sports programs are through the room with top on the line facilities. The single thing that I wish to change about Merritt High would be: off-campus lunch. Less than 6 miles away is multiple restaurants that we could all go eat at instead of the school cafeteria.
