I hope you found the answers to your question about the high school that gets good grades near the home in Meridian that you inquired about. Brian gave you the best website to know about a schools performance. One other thing that I did when my children were in school was to find people whose children went to the school and asked them for their feelings about the classes, teachers and administration. Parents are full of information and normally do not have a problem talking about their interactions when it involves their children. If you don't have the option of doing that and the performance of the school does not meet your standards, I would then check out the other schools in the area such as the magnet schools or private schools that may be more to your children's needs.
I hope that helps you a little bit.
