Hats off to...

Recently, some of our students from the High School's Physical Science classes went to the Young 5's class to help them with their Egg Drop project that they were working on. The High School students had quite a bit of background because they had just completed theirs! Check out the video from the day of the Egg Drop!

In the News

Meridian Early College High School has had quite a busy last few weeks. With the Junior Class taking the SAT, Sophomore Class taking that PSAT and others taking the MSTEP, it was a long week of testing. Following that was our visit from the State Superintendent, Brain Whiston, who stopped out to see our Principles of BioMedical Science and Principles of Engineering Classes. You may have seen the article in the Midland Daily News (available here) posted on our Facebook page about Mr. Whiston's visit. Not only did Mr. Whiston visit, but we were also featured in the State Board of Education's Top 10 in 10 in 2 video, where Chief Deputy Superintendent Sheila Alles talked about the Strategic Plan for the State of Michigan's Education Department to make Michigan a Top 10 State for Education in 10 years (also available here). Now you're probably thinking "Wow! That is quite an accomplishment!", but it doesn't stop there. We also had two of our 5th Year students receive their Associates Degrees from Delta College BEFORE getting their high school diploma. We would like to congratulate Anthony Rospierski and Jamie Mosher for their hard work and wish them the best of luck in their future endeavors. But wait! There is even more! Another one of our students, Cassidy Forbes, was featured in the Midland Daily News for the series Growing up, Living and Learning in Midland as told through its residents. Cassidy said that "It's {Meridian's Early College and Dual Enrollment Program} working really well" Check out the rest of the article here!

With all of the great things that we have had happen, it would not be possible without the support of all of our faculty and staff. Each member of the team has helped make a difference at Meridian Public Schools. Interested in knowing more about us? Go to www.merps.org or call us at 989-687-3200.
