Merrill Middle School

School Day

The first day of school for 6th graders is August 21st. 7th and 8th graders are expected to return on August 23rd.


Merrill students are in classes everyday from 7:45 am – 3:00 pm. Classes begin promptly at 7:45.

Each day students will take 3 core classes (Math and Language Arts are daily, while Science and Social Studies are every other day). These classes are 76 minutes long.

Students also take up to 4 semester-long electives and up to 4  quarter-long enrichments along with a twice-a-week advisement. Reading, writing, math, and social-emotional interventions are based on student need and support. Electives are 49 minutes and Enrichments and Advisement are 30 minutes.

Completed student schedules can be viewed in IC starting the week of August 14th and students will receive their final schedule the first day of school.

Beginning in September, there will be a variety of free after school opportunities.
