A great school with excellent teachers. It feels like a family in Merryhill. The teachers are very caring, really understand the children's aptitudes and limitations, and the administrations are also caring and talented.Special mention to the teaching assistant Ms M. The kids just love her.My son is attending his kindergarten here and we could not ask for more. He loves his class and cannot stop talking about his teacher. We are so happy that we chose Merryhil for our son. The review is for Merryhill, San Jose.
I notice the reviews are not current so am adding one. My son has attended since "Pre-K" (bit different than preschool) and is in 3rd grade now. The school was good to start with, but even better now. I can't disagree with an earlier review of "lacks organization" but this has changed dramatically with another principal in place now. Fundraisers? Yep, still there, but I wouldn't say "constant" and other schools seem the same. These extra funds provide extras; even in the private school setting. I think this school is a great blend of academic,community and overall general emphasis.
Merryhill elemnetary in Mabury in particular is excellent. My son studied here until 5th grade here and then moved to middle school in Milpitas brach. There was a huge difference in the level. 6th grade was lower in Math than 5th grade. Elementary school in Mabury has great Math, Science and English teacher. It is very nice they keep the same teachers for the 4th and 5th grade for these core subjects. Could do more in Computer/technology for being a private school. They do power points and excel sheets from elemnetary through middle school. Not sure why they do not want to adopt more challenging stuff in computers. I don't like to compare to challenger school, this school is good by itself and has room for a lot of improvements.
The school seems perpetually short of funds (constant fundraisers), lacks organization.
