Excellent school with caring committed teachers and administrators. Several model classrooms, special needs children are integrated extremely well. Physical education, music art are available weekly or biweekly. Parent involvement is extremely high. PTA is top notch.

My son is in the ESE pre-K program at this school. His teachers have been excellent both in K-3 and K-4. We work together very closely to ensure that he is getting the skills he needs to succeed in school. There are a lot of opportunities for parents to be involved if they choose to do so.

Merrill Road Elementary has always focused on excellence in academics. They have a great teaching staff, and there is plenty of parent involvement.

My child has had a horrible experience with this school. He had an Individual Eduacation Plan that his teacher said that she 'overlooked' and did not go by. She just more less 'babysat' him last year and he is suffering this year because of it. He had to repeat the same grade this year because of the lack of education that he didn't get last year. I am so frustrated with this school being an 'A' school. The classrooms are too large. The teacher does not get to spend time with each child as she needs to due to the large teacher to student ratio. There is no parent involvement either at this school. I give this school an 'F'.

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.

Oops! We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Public and charter school test scores for most states come from the state Department of Education. The most common reasons we might not have this data are either that not enough students took the test or that the school was recently opened, and its scores have not yet been reported.
