All three of my children attended this school and had the best experience of all their academic years. Loving, supportive, good education and a mix of arts that made for a winning combination. Eternally thankful for the school and how it impacted my children.

Besides the A,B,Cs this school teaches our children about Respect and Caring for others. It also is a relatively low-cost private school designed to service parents who need affordable schooling for their children, with aftercare and before care.

Prior to my disability, I taught at Meher Schools for 16 years. Throughout my tenure there, the faculty and staff were not only supportive of the students--but of their families as well. Many graduates of our school return to teach there. It still amazes me when I find out that another of my former students has become a substitute, part time or full time teacher. Many more volunteer their time there. It is one wonderful school dedicated to the principle that children learn best in a loving, caring and nurturing environment. The school has always lived by that philosophy.

My son and the children of many of my friends have attended Meher Schools. It offers a non-judgmental, caring environment in which the children learn academics and also respect for themselves and others. Meher Schools provides a wonderful foundation for future learning. Children return in later years to reconnect with the teachers who offered them so much.

The creative arts programming is outstanding. Children have an opportunity to develop creative as well as practical skills, build confidence and interpersonal skills, all in an atmosphere of non-judgment and caring support.

I love the Meher Schools because they're doing today what the best schlools will be doing tomorrow.

My daughter is in the preschool program. It is an amazing place, with a strong focus on the arts and literatures. High achievers, great teachers. I am very impressed.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

Oops! We currently do not have any student information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.
