Excellent school, the teachers are avaiablefor one on one time with a student. the only concern that i have was the principal she tends not to keep a promise nor run the school in an orderly fashion. She rarley addresses a problem and if she does it never follows through to the student

Cato-Meridian is one of the top schools in the State. Great facilities, great teachers, and an outstanding environment to grow up in. I was extremely blessed to grow up in such a tight knit town. I now am very successful in my professional life and owe it all to being raised a Blue Devil!!!

I had two children who have graduated from the Cato-Meridian School District and are both attending college and they both have said that going to that school NEVER prepared them for college. Isn't that what high school is supposed to do, I guess I was confused. There were some teachers who did make a difference and I am sure you know who you are. Thank you to those who did!
