    I have had several children attend Merrill. The teachers and parents make an admirable effort but falls short. The teachers for the most part do care about each student. The parent group tries to do what it can but is dependent on one or two members to carry the load. You never seem to know what is going on at the school. There is a terrible lack of communication between the school and parents. A newsletter here and there just doesn't cover it.
