Hi, I am a student at Meigs and I would say it's AWESOME! The teachers here are so nice. If you get a bad grade they'll try to find a time to work with you and correct your grade. Also, our principal Dr. Underwood [principal] and Mr. Giltz [assistant principal] are so nice. There is way more awesome stuff about Meigs ,but I can't list them all. [:
