Merrill Middle School

School Day

The first day of school for 6th graders is August 22nd. 7th and 8th graders are expected to return on August 24th.

Merrill students are in classes everyday from 7:45 am – 3:35 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 88 minutes long.

Students also take up to 4 semester-long electives and up to  4  quarter-long enrichments. Reading, writing, math, and social-emotional interventions are based on student need and support. These classes are all 42-45 minutes.

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