Meridian is a great way to learn and have fun. I have grown as a student tremendously through-out my years at Meridian. Its unique learning environment and small classroom size makes it easier to get the attention from a teacher that you need. It's truly an incredible school filled with incredible people.

Both of my sons have attended Meridian and have grown as creative, independent learners with tremendous initiative. The faculty are bright, enthusiastic and caring and students get lots of attention and are known well. Communication with parents is excellent. Students have an evening exhibition of their projects (papers, experiments, art work, etc.) three times a year so you can really see the quality of their work.
