I have been at Merrol Hyde since Kindergarten, and I am so glad to have been at this school for almost 12 years now. It is definitely a unique high school experience, and I wouldn't trade that for anything else. We are academically superior and the friendships made at this school are unlike any others. Everyone here is so nice and accepting of people's differences and it is such a unique, academic-minded environment. After my full education here, I feel as though I can go to any college, with any major, and truly succeed. We have some of the best teachers in the state and they genuinely care about the success of every student here. Some of them stay after school everyday and come in on the weekends just to help students prep for AP tests. Everyone here is so involved and invested in each other's lives; Merrol Hyde is one of the best aspects of my life. I'm going to miss it more than anything in two years, Roll Hyde!!
Review Merrol Hyde Magnet School
Merrol Hyde lives up to its expectations as one of the top schools in the state of Tennessee. This past year we recieved the honor of being the top school based on test scores, and hope to be moved up to top school overall. The student to faculty ratio is great for one on one learning. The teachers are genuinely interested in helping out the students no matter what age or whether or not they're even in their class. The students are very friendly as well. Each grade is very close knit and family like as most of the students have been there since elementary. My grade - Class of 2017 - will be the first class to go K-12. I came in 5th grade and everyone in my grade welcomed me and made me feel at home. Merrol Hyde is in fact a great place to work and learn. Go Hawks!!
Most of the high-school teachers are very helpful and engaging, with a few lacking in that area. The school has this terrible "prestigious" (if you can even call it that) attitude that really overshadows everything. The new principal is a complete joke and has failed miserably at getting any kind of respect from the students, and surprisingly even the teachers. If you aren't prepared to go through any rough patches with no help from the administration (save a few kind teachers) then don't bother with this school.
