I have nothung but praise for these teachers. We have a little girl who was in your classic daycare setting and is now in a much better environment where learning, compassion, respect are all important to the whole child and taught accordingly.
Absolutely. Coming into a school halfway through the year can be challenging no matter what grade you're in but the teachers have worked with our child and the kids in her class to welcome her and encourage inclusion in games and playtime.
Hard to say with certain as we've only been here a month but our daughter had decided in the past 6 months that it was okay to take things that didn't belong to her. Working with her teacher we have been able to eliminate this behavior and get her to understand the importance of honesty.
Absolutely fantastic school. We have been there a month and our daughter has already learned so much! It is encouraging to have a little girl (3.5 years) who suddenly enjoys school and learning. What a difference the right environment can make.
I have two children attending the Merit School of PW and can't say enough positive things about the teachers, the curriculum, the administrators, or the environment. I greatly appreciate the hands on learning style that the school promotes, where enrichment activities such as educational field trips, science experiments, and even on-premise vegetable gardens allow my children to learn by seeing and touching. Combined with a structured desk curriculum, and ample free play on the amazing playground, my kids have flourished. Lastly, I have to hand it to the Principal, Mrs. George, who tirelessly works to create the best environment and experience for the children. She is firm, but so invested in these kids and loves each and every one of them. A+++!!!
My son attended junior kindergarten 5 here and we love his teacher and the program she has built. Her students are challenged and have fun every day. The teacher is highly engaged with the students and parents, and always great at communicating positive and negatives about the day.
We came to this school for JK from Prince William Academy. My son's teacher is Ms. Mayer. We LOVE this school. They are structured but nurturing. The administrators and teachers are amazing and caring. Everyone knows everyone and it is a family. My son went through different transitions and they worked with him and helped him succeed. He learned how to read at age 4 and is ever so ready for K due to this teacher and school. I would recommend this school to ANYONE.
