Merit School 5

Ms. Smithson is a wonderful teacher that makes learning fun. My child was in her class and she was very shy and did not like coming to school. When she entered ms. Smithson's class this all changed. Her teacher made earning fun and my child really blossomed. She now is not shy when giving presentations and speaking in a crowd. The administrators Mrs. George and Mr. Webb are extremely professional and they truly love the children. There was a child with Cystic Fibrosis in my child's class and the staff volunteered their time and money to help her reach her goal for the Cystic Fibrosis walk in Washington D.C. When the child reached her goal, they happily travelled to D.C to walk alongside her and others. It was quite an enjoyable day and it showed the true commitment of the people at the Merit School. I know that my child is truly being invested in so that they can reach their academic and social potential.

Mrs. Brooks is a wonderful teacher and she truly cares about the development and well-being of the children. All of the staff are so welcoming and it feels like we are part of a little family. So thankful that we found this school!

Thanks to our teacher and some home study, my child has excelled academically including learning to read. Her confidence has increased and she is looking forward to the next grade level.

From the moment we visited the school, we were welcomed into the family. We felt that our child would be happy there and we decided to enroll. Since that time, our child has flourished academically and she has worked through some behavioral issues.

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.
