    My children have been attending this school for 5 years now and I have had my ups and downs with the school but my children have grown and learned a lot during their time there. The teachers that I have encountered really seem to care about the students and Mrs. Morgan really is a great help to some of the students. My middle daughter had some emotional and educational issues and Mrs Morgan was really a shinning light for her. Also Mrs Santoro a third grade teacher there is one of the best teachers I have ever had the pleasure to work with. She was my child's second and then third grade teacher and has been a huge part of why my middle daughter has thrived the way she has. All in all not a bad environment for children.

    Great environment in this rich in diversity school. Very pleased to be a parent involved at merry Oaks. Mrs. Morgan (psychologist) is truly a gem and a breath of fresh air. She always seems to have a thoughtful take on any situation.
