Greetings parents!

Starting March 1st, we will begin our  assessments for the 3rd nine weeks. Please make sure that your child/children are at school on time and prepared for school.

We have worked extremely hard to increase academic achievement at Robert L. Merritt Jr. High School and want it to show, especially in this testing season. We were only 3 points away from scoring a B on our 2nd nine weeks assessment and we have made adjustments to grow even higher.

We are planning to have an honors banquet as a finale to celebrate all of our students who did exceptionally well. Our goal is "Growth For All Students" and our students deserve the best. 

As always, thank you for choosing Robert L. Merritt Jr. High!

Christopher Turner, Principal

The character word for the month of March is Curiosity….Which means-searching for information for its own sake. Active open-mindness means exploring a wide range of relevant information when trying to draw a conclusion; including information that challenges our own initial assumptions.
