I love Merriam Avenue School the teachers have been wonderful and the technology is great. The teachers librarian music spanish and other special items offered are also top notch. The one item lacking is the parent involvement you see the same parents helping and doing at all the events.

This is a great school as a whole. Academics social aspects citizenship and extra curricular activities. There are so many activities to choose from and great parent involvement as well!
My child is given the attention she needs and is well motivated to do her work which I feel is because of the teachers willingness to deal with every child individually.
My son goes to this school. Its a nice school as far as teachers and staff goes-however academically my son is in classes with students that need 'more attention' or have learning disabilities and its not fair for both groups of students. My son gets board quickly while he completes his work and is waiting on those who need aid and the teachers need to stop the class to focus on those individuals. There is also not alot of school activites.
My daughter goes to this school and I feel it has the best teachers on staff and she loves going to school everyday.
