Welcome To Meridian High School
We Are A Successful School!
Meridian High School is in the unique position of being the only public high school in the city of Meridian, Mississippi, an urban community of approximately 44,000. The city serves as a regional trade center for eight rural communities in east Mississippi and west Alabama. We are the home of the WILDCATS and our school colors are royal blue and white.
The mission of Meridian High School is to provide a relevant and challenging curriculum to help students reach their maximum educational and social potential in a safe and secure learning environment.
