    Mermentau Elementary is a fine country school with excellent students. Many of the teachers will bend over backwards to help the students especially the teachers in the upper grades.

    My daughter attended kindergarten during this last school year. She had a wonderful year and is reading well. Thanks to her teacher (mrs. Miller) and aides we've had a super year!
