I got accepted to 6 colleges after high school but I did not feel ready for any so I came here. I definitely grew my writing, critical thinking, math, and science skills through Merritt and the Peralta district.

    Many of the teachers classes i have attended have a problem-posing style of teaching, thriving the student mind to learn for him or herself more about any aspect of history, science and overall life.

    I rate Merritt College an A plus so far it's unique in that the beautiful location on top of hill with fantastic views. I am in a substance abuse program with Dr. Love who's a great educator, I've learned so much in this my second semester here and am looking forward to finishing the program. I feel this program is my calling and I'm listening all the way!
