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.
The Merit School is one of the best kept secrets in the Woodbridge area. My child attended the school from preschool through the 1st grade and flourished there. The administration and teachers are deeply passionate about the children, their education and the school. They are truly commited. The school has character and charm and provides a feeling of home which makes it a secure, comfortable and a stimulating environment for the children. It is also very welcoming for parents. Outstanding playground. I highly recomnmend this school.
The Merit School of Prince William is a great school. The teachers are so warm and friendly. My children thrived at this school and looked forward to going every day. From the excellent curriculum and cozy classrooms to the amazing playground, we couldn't have asked for a better beginning to our children's education.
