Best High School


Dear Parents/Students:


The faculty and staff believe that you each are a very special young person with an important future ahead of you. The teachers and I are committed to use our energies to create the type of programs and atmosphere so you can be successful. Your part is to (1) come to school ready to learn, (2) go to class on time, (3) work hard to get good grades, and (4) follow the guidelines in the student handbook.

Merino Junior/Senior High School will provide you with many opportunities to learn and enjoy your educational experience and we encourage you to get involved academically, and socially. Your involvement in various groups or teams will help you to understand how to work with others and will enable you to build positive relationships. Research shows that involvement with activities outside of the classroom helps students with their interest in school and eventual graduation.


We expect students to strive for excellence in his/her studies and to make positive contributions to our school and our community. Don’t take classes because they are easy, take them because what they will open for you in the future. As a teaching staff, we will not willingly accept failure on the student’s part. In addition, you have an equally important responsibility to ask questions and seek extra help when you don’t understand.


 The cornerstone of any successful school community is the concept of mutual respect for others in the community. We have over 150 teachers, staff, and students sharing an environment at the same time. Therefore, your actions must be consistent with the rules and must not infringe on the rights, safety, and respect for others.


Our hope is that you will always strive to be the best student and person you can be. I look forward to this coming year and many successes at Merino. If there is anything that I can help you with as you pursue your educational goals, please let me know. My best wishes to you and let’s show that MERINO PRIDE!
