    "When I first came to this school, I did not ever want to leave. With time I, of course, realized it is still a high school and I still will enjoy graduating but only to go into the world and use what Meridian gave me; a sense of self, a constant and growing curiosity, and a strong and powerful voice."

    "The teachers at Meridian Academy are some of the most hardworking people you'll ever meet. It is clear in their teaching that they really care about the students. They give meticulous edits on their students work over and over again until their students completely understand the subject at hand, and they are more than happy to schedule a meeting if the student is still having trouble with the content or simply wants to ask more questions then they had time for in class. These teachers are also incredibly welcome to comments and even advice from their students on how to better their teaching. At least once a year students evaluate how their teachers are doing in class (and though they are often glowing) the teachers do their best to incorporate the evaluations into their teaching. They are some of my favorite people and I could never say that about a teacher before coming to this school."

    "The intense sense of community combined with amazing teachers, engaged students, and incredibly interesting content make Meridian like no other place. I've watched Meridian grow from 34 students to in the 70s over the course of five years and even though I still have one year to go I know I will never forget Meridian or the things it has taught me both in and outside of the classroom. It's the type of place where I could go back in 15 years and the teachers would still remember me (not that I ever plan of losing touch with Meridian)."

    "Meridian teachers never fail to exceed expectations when it comes to engaging and thorough learning material, various explanations of class content, creative project ideas, overall engagement and genuine care for students, as well as an overall distinct interest in the school as a whole."

    "I would recommend this school to anyone who wants to challenge their understand of how we learn and how we are taught. Unfortunately in most schools things cannot be explored in ways we wish them to be, but Meridian allows you (more like strongly encourages you) to push those boundaries and ask questions. Coming from a large school, I was terrified to be in such a small environment, but that drawback was a benefit in disguise. Suddenly everyone from 6th grade to 12th grade was mixed in this melting pot of wanting to learn. Teachers are more mentors and want you to succeed no matter what the price. Each time I question my decision of choosing a school with no grades (a major challenge) I remember that Meridian taught me look at who the person is, rather than what letter defines them."
