Schools and Education


To compliment Meridian’s focus on families, the high quality education system is dedicated to success for every student and is well tailored to catering to the diverse needs, talents, abilities, and ambitions of Meridian residents.  The availability of multiple options put choice back in the hands of the parents who know their kids best and can work with educational professionals to find the most successful fit.


Meridian is within the West Ada School District and is home to four high schools, two alternate high schools, one online school high school, five middle schools, two alternative middle schools, and fifteen elementary schools.  There are two vocational schools, two charter schools, and four private schools.  For those families who choose to home school their children, there are also several home schooling cooperatives and other resources available in the area.
