    "At Merit we found a school replete with inconsistency and unprofessionalism. The music program is mediocre. The school boasts a PBL program, but that is not what is being offered. The recently hired Director is a weak leader who has issues with integrity and solid leadership. He does not respond to parental concerns. His only goal is to promote his philosophy of Expeditionary Learning, while not being qualified to run it. In regard to the coach who was let go this year, the "small group of elite athletes included over 50 student athletes who were directly affected. Not to mention the financial fiasco the school is in at the present time. The budget is in the red and has been for multiple years. Other good teachers are also leaving because of the incompetence of the new Director. Discipline issues are increasing and some of the teachers feel that the lack of Administrative presence is the reason. On a positive note, the theater program is good at Merit as well as the small classes."

    "I like the teachers and the atmosphere of Merit College Preparatory Academy. There have been a few rough bumps in the time I have been here - changes in administration, teachers, and programs seem to happen all the time now. Even though I may not like all of the choices the new administration is making, I believe that this school is worthwhile, has a good program with better teachers, and, best of all, has really good lunches."

    "My first year here has been better than previous schools, but a lot of things could improve, like the way some teachers teach lessons. Not everyone learns the same and that needs to be realized."

    "Merit Academy is seriously the best, it is a small number of students, and everyone knows each other. It feels more like a family environment. Everyone is included, and people aren't left out. It's really fun, seeing as the school is going more towards project based learning. We make rings in science class with an acetylene torch, and every time we learn about a certain chemical reaction we then do it, to see what it looks like in real life. That is just one example, the whole school is hands on like that. The teachers are not teachers, they are more like friends, and they really connect with the students. It's just an awesome school!"

    "Merit is a like family. Our kids love it here. The arts programs are wonderful and top notch. Kids get a chance to shine in a lot of different ways. The teachers care about the students and kids don't get lost in the crowd. The new director has had to make some tough decisions this year, but his dedication and vision have been a breath of fresh air. The departure of the basketball coach was tough on some kids, but outside of a small group of elite athletes, he was not well liked by the students or teachers. He caused a lot of unnecessary drama that is now gone from the school. Oh and they have a professional chef that makes school lunches. Nothing like the gross food I ate in high school. Stop by and check out Merit for yourself. Our family has had a great experience at Merit."
