Myers is a wonderful school. We have been very pleased with the school since moving to the district. The teachers are highly dedicated and know how to motivate students to achieve. The principal is also dedicated and goes above and beyond for the students. This school has a good enrichment program and many extra curricular activities. The PTO is highly involved and engages parents and teachers often and in a variety of ways. I highly recommend Myers to any parent who wants a quality education for their children.

We moved into this district and this grammar school 4 years ago from a very high achieving grammar school in another state. we have been blown away by how excellent this school is- the experience and commitment of the teachers, the administrative leadership, the sense of community, the incredible diversity, and the commitment to arts and music. We could not be happier. It is a diverse school and there is great parental involvement-- there are challenges associated with this- mostly complaining. We have a great school to compare it to though, and Myers is way ahead on all measures that I care about.

Pros: Location,new building, enrichment activities, music and art programs and the children. you find out over the course of the school year which teachers truly shine and which lackluster. you cannot make requests so luck of the draw or who you know matters. Cons:the new principal lacks true leadership skills and a vision of taking the school to the next level.Good things do not stay good by themselves or by blaming parents. I get the sense that he is more interested in being liked than being a true leader. I have personally witnessed elitism, and socio-economic exclusion during student events along with an overall attitude of smile and move along, dont question things and dont rock the boat. Compared to most public schools it has very nice packaging, but nice buildings do not translate into a great edcuation. At new parent orientation this year the gap between white and black test scores was analyzed but no plan of action was provided to equalize this situation. Instead the principal put it to the parents to figure it out. Why am I paying all these taxes for me to fix your achievment gap? It was embarrasing and showed a lack of empathy from the admistration for minorites.

We feel so lucky to have Myers as our local public school! The teachers are so outstanding, dedicated and talented, but also warm and caring. It's a warm and welcoming school community but also very diverse. Art and music classes are AMAZING, and so is the challenge program for gifted kids. We have a new prinicipal this year who seems great also. I am amazed that people are not lining up to buy houses in the Myers catchment, it is just that good. Best kept secret in MontCo!

This is a fantastic school. Very nurturing, close knit, high parental involvement, and most of all I think this school has some of the best teachers in the district. They actually love their jobs and go above and beyond the school day.

Myers is the best school. I've had children in different States and different schools. The principal, teachers, aides, and staff at Myers are very caring, attentive, and loving. They treat the children like their own children. The first day of my child's kindergarten class was the best, the teacher came out, got on her knees to the kids level and introduced herself to them...I thought that was the best introduction any child could get. Five stars to Myers!

I am very pleased with Myers. I have one attending now and the teachers truly care about the individual students. I miss Dr. Hart tremendously but we all have to move on eventually. I say keep up the good work.

my son only spent a year at myers for fourth grade and he loved it. we came from a good west mount airy school, but the classes were kind of large. my son was recently diagnosised with adhd and the school responded very quickly to help us adjust and assisted us with getting him help to move to fifth grade. i highly recommened this school district. keep up the good work.

Myers is a family-friendly school which prides itself on its diversity and strong academics. Pam Hart is a great principal who leads effectively and knows every kid by name.

This is an amazing school. The faculty and staff make it a point to highlight and appreciate the great variety of ethnicities and cultures that attend this school. My son loved this school, though sadly we've moved back to Iowa for grad school. He learned so much academically, and more importantly, about accepting others and getting along in a world of diversity.

I'm pleased with the overall quality of the school. I've had to push to get services for my special needs child, but eventually they come through.
