Merdinian evangelical school is a great school especially the elementary section.. I believe the preschool needs some renovation in the teaching staff. Teachers with BA degrees would be more creative, more effective. Our kids are eager to learn and try new appropriate practices, come on Merdinian let's feed them with those practices...

Merdinian Evangelical school is an outstanding Christian, Armenian, family orineted, school. Our two children are attending for the past 6 years. We are so happy that we were introduced to the school by our freinds, who's kids have also attended and graduated from Merdinian. Merdinian provides Excellent education. We highly recommend Merdinian to parents who are looking for a nurturing enviorment for their children.

This school is amazing. Academically it has met all my expectations. I am proud to be a Merdinian parent. The new Principal has been a blessing to us all.

I went there for 11 years and now I go to an American school and I did not feel prepared at all for the English. The teaching was not great and many of the classmates were rude. I dont think that the current principal is ready to run a high school

I have two boys at Merdinian and in my opinion it is the best school for them. Class size is great. The teachers are exceptional. The Principal takes pride in the school and the students - very supportive. I just pray everyday that the expansion project is done before my boys reach high school.

Overall a good school. First year of preschool is great. Had some problems with the head of the preschool. Good teachers and good class size.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

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.
