Welcome to Merkel Junior High and Middle School !
Merkel ISD is a Class AAA school district located 17 miles west of Abilene.
Our Junior High (7th & 8th grades) and Middle School (5th and 6th grades) are very closely connected. While our classrooms are in separate buildings, we share the same gym, cafeteria, library, office, and administration.
Middle School and Junior High serve approximately 175 students each. Though small in size, we're big in spirit! Our small-school-feel provides a personalized teaching experience and a friendly learning environment for each child. Our students, faculty and staff are made up of a wide range of social and ethnic backgrounds, blending together to make Merkel Junior High/Middle School a winning combination.
Not only do we strive to excel in academics, but we also provide a selection of extracurricular activities such as athletics, band, art, and theater arts. Students involved in these activities are very competitive and make our school and community very proud!
