I give my school a 5/5 because it is one of the best schools there is. I think this because there are teachers there that act like that are rude and mean like my teacher Mrs.Lubbers but really she like others really care for us students and are a hard on us because they want us to do good on life. Another reason is that they felt that students were not well and where giving up on life but then on Friday, January 24, 2020, they had a speaker that talked to our whole school community telling us not to give up and there is always someone that cares and loves you and at one point;The speaker had all the students and teacher come to the gym floor and had us give hugs to everyone teachers and staff where all crying. This is why Merrill Middle School is an amazing school because they don't care just about our grades but they also care about us and that they don't want us to give up in life and that the teachers really care.
