The school building itself is relatively young but the high school bathrooms are just terrible the boy's bathroom is the worst because of the stench with very few people to clean them. The bus system is decent but could use a few tweaks. The technology available is not the greatest but it gets the job done. The science labs and the library are fairly good but could use a bigger budget. All classes have air conditioning and heating but only a few have actual control over the temperature in the building and the rest are stuck with whatever the thermostat is set to.

The nurse was terrible in the early 2000's. She administered medicine without contacting parents and she tried to set a kindergartner's broke arm. The school occasionally goes into code blue which means there is a danger on the campus which it typically is one of the students with drugs. There is an officer that patrols the campus but other than that the school security is pretty bad.
The teachers are what make Merryville an okay place to attend. Most teachers are friendly and try to make the subjects entertaining and some act as pseudo-parents by making sure that the students are caught up with their work from other classes and just genuinely trying to help.
