I have been going to Merrol Hyde for about 4 years and I absolutely love it! (Most) of the teachers are great and the curriculum is challenging and fun. It’s very easy to make friends here because everyone is so kind and welcoming! The sports program here at Merrol Hyde is not that great, but if you are going to Merrol Hyde I assume you are going for the academics. Most of the teachers here are very helpful and involved with what is happening around the school. If you are looking for a school in Sumner county, I recommend going to Merrol Hyde.

Merrol Hyde Magnet School is a wonderful K-12 school that prepared me well both academically and disciplinarily for college. The teachers genuinely care about students' academic performance and facilitate a welcoming environment that allows students to engage with the lecture and feel comfortable when asking questions. As a previous student, I have many fond memories of Merrol Hyde and am so thankful for the teachers that have served as mentors both during my time as a student there and after my graduation. I still have teachers who contact and reach out to me to see how I'm doing and encourage me in my continued education in college. Ultimately, I am so thankful to call Merrol Hyde Magnet School my alma mater and I am sure that all students who attend will have a similar experience and feeling.
MHMS is an excellent learning environment for children who excel in a challenging, intimate environment. Students work at an accelerated pace, while benefiting from teachers and staff who are dedicated to the success of the whole child. As a K-12 school, students have the opportunity to learn from those both younger and older than themselves, yet who share the same values of quality education, respect for varying viewpoints, and outstanding character. MHMS graduates students who demonstrate high academic achievement, respect for differing ideas, leadership skills, and a capacity and thirst for deep thinking.
