I am a student at Meek High School, and I'm giving this school a 5 star rating. I'm not giving this school that rating just because I go there, but because this school deserves it. This school has done so much for me and my sister an dmy mom! The teachers are so freakin awesome especially Mr.and Mrs. Ganey! But I love this school and my advice to you is that if you want to transfer your kids anywere it needs to be Meek High School! GO MEEK TIGERS

I'm a student at Meek High School and I absolutely love it. Yes, it is infact small, however, it's a fantastic place to learn. I've met many great people who have helped me along the way. If anything it's almost better to attend a small educated school in my opinion because you recieve more one on one time with the teachers. Mr. & Mrs. Ganey ( Two of the Science and Math teachers) are some of the most hardworking people on the staff, and they push the students to be all that we can be. Many people think bad of Meek due to it's size or because we don't have the best sports system in the state of Alabama, but we're amazing where it counts : ] Sending your children to Meek High School would be an extremely beneficial decision.

Meek High School is a great small school located in the town of Arley. Arley is located in the Smith Lake Community of North Alabama. The student to teacher ratio is approximately 22 to 1 providing students with a greater opportunity to receive quality instruction. Currently, the majority of the staff reside in the local community and share the core values of the community. Based on these values and beliefs, the staff is fully committed to providing all students with the opportunity to develop the skills necessary to become successful and productive citizens. Due to the increasing availability of lake property, the community continues to grow and student population is expected to grow in the future. A variety of extracurricular activities including athletics, band, science olympiad, scholar's bowl, drama, and national honor society are available to the student body. Quality life awaits you in this community!

Meek high school is one of the best schools in alabama, and in the nation! test scores for meek were in the top 8% in the nation. I highly reccomend meek to all the parents in arley, and the surrounding areas. They have great teachers, faculty, and staff. The quality of the people who work there is stupendous! the principal mr. Danny stallings-aformer coach at meek is very involved, and understanding. Mrs. Lauren archer-the counselor, is great. The meek high school band of champions, are recognized nationally. They have been awarded many great honors. Mrs. Nancy frith, the band director-also a former band member at meek, is a great band teacher. She works hard to teach the children in her program music, and dicipline. If you live in the arley communit, or any of the surrounding areas, please consider meek, as a school for your children. -Meek high school student
