Love this school!!! I was very uneasy about putting my 2 year old in a f/t program and they have been amazing!! The staff have been there for years which shows that they are vested. Highly recommend!!

Both my kids attended Merokee for a number of years. Some of their teachers are excellent. There is no match to their playground area. Not to say that there is no fault with them - but overall we liked the experience. They have some staffing and management issues that could be improved and summer programs are run more like a glorified day care.

My daughter attended in 2005/2006 and hated her teacher!! I learned that about 3 years ago. Definately not top in the area.

I sent my child to Merokee last summer, I though it was to disorganized, the school was run down, it could use fixing, paint, cleaning, etc. Also the teachers or helpers were not 100% watching the kids. We did not have a good experience

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

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.
