    "Don't go! First you might think its a really good school when you come in but that's because the teachers change their whole personality to make it look like your actually doing work. I've seen that with all teachers as a student. They are also separated which is totally pointless recess and lunch is time to socialize with your friends, your better off going to an all girls or boys school.Just today we had a basket ball game and their not letting you stay unless you have a parent. They completely don't trust us. The kids graffiti on the school. And the bathrooms. There is way too Much fighting and drama. In One week we can have 5 fights but they won't do anything. Just tell us to stop. They are creating all of these rules that are completly unnecessary and uneeded. They care about our dress code and rules more than the actual education. For your best do not take your kid here. The principle won't even be here all of the time its all Mr.stringer (kudos) but still mr franklin has no point in his job but to make kids feel bad about themselfs. ( I made a new friend and he told me that I changed and I needed to change back) he is not responsible of my personality.don't go!"

    "I had high hopes for Merrill and my child did well the 6th grade year. However, now there is basically no homework every night-none, zippo, zilch, nada. My child also remarked this year that the teachers all seem unhappy and a few seem to go overboard with punishments (i.e. if you speak one word while the teacher is speaking, you will be written up). The school has a restricted dress code and the administration spends a lot of time riding students for that (no sweats policy is one-unless they have pockets-however, most boys are allowed to wear any sweats. Leggings aren't permitted-why not allow them if a shirt is worn to cover the rear). My child also complains about kids in the classroom acting out and disrupting learning. Then the teacher has to repeatedly keep attention on these kids. At times, the entire class is punished because of the group of kids that cause the trouble. Overall, this does not equal a good learning environment for my child and we are looking elsewhere. I do have to give kudos to Mr. Stringer. He works his b*** off. If one were to come to the school repeatedly, they'd probably think he was the principal."

    "This school has been trying to turn itself around but still has some significant hurdles. There are frequent teacher absences; my son has a list of his 'favorite subs.' One day he had 4 subs. Teachers disappear without explanation, are pulled out of class when they are about to give a lesson. Surely this can be orchestrated better. The kids lose out."

    "Merrill was great. I graduated from there last year and miss everything about it. It also prepared me for high school in an IB program. I really appreciated the fact that it is a diverse and cultural community school. I don't understand any of the negative responses on this website. It made me want to write the truth about Merrill and the truth is that it is an AWESOME school. The teachers are the BEST!"

    "Merrill Middle School has been wonderful for our entire family. My kids have been taught how to think and grow into themselves as individuals. The teachers are top-notch and go above and beyond to reach each student. TCAP scores don't rate these qualities and although TCAP scores at Merrill are high and improving - these are qualities that are important to consider. I am a proud parent of Merrill and am grateful for the wonderful experience it provided for my kids."
