This school is simple and a bit old compared to the nearby schools. It has some problems such as old rooms and such stuff but overall appearance wise this school is okay. I like how the original Merced High School is the best overall school wise in the county. This school could improve by having more school spirit and landscape. In the old days this school actually had flowers!

I am the father of three Merced High School grads and husband to a long time teacher at Merced High. I have followed Merced High School for over fifteen years and I am now and have always been most impressed with the teaching staff and the hard work that they apply to answering the challenges with face them on a daily basis.

People who want to berate test scores need to learn how to spell 'higher'. I am a member of MHS Class of '06 and had a great time here academically. My favorite teacher was easily Mrs. Schroeder. I had her for sophomore advanced English and senior AP English, and she's a gem of a teacher. It's ridiculous that they took her out of that position to put her as 'department coordinator', or whatever. What a waste of talent. Because of her, I got a '4' (above passing) on the AP Literature and Composition Test and am now an English major at Stanislaus State.

sorry to say, but this school has terrible academics, and if you can't graduate from MHS, then you my friend, are doomed. teachers aren't involved, and the quality of the staff is down right poor. not much of a challenge from the former school i left.

MHS has the quality of a school in a since that there are fairly high test scores and student cooperation. However, the campus has many vandalism and gang problems as well as undisciplined students with garbage. The teachers are very excellent. But however, the school GVHS has a hire test score.

Teachers are fine, but the school is on a downhill slide. School boundaries need to be changed.

The Staff and Administration at Merced High School are compasionate about education and have an unrelenting determination to help every child succeed. I was extreemly glad my children attended this school as they were well prepared for college and life in general. Thanks to the wonderful staff for all of the hard work and dedication.

The teacher quality, especially who teach AP classes, is very poor.
