Hello I am a elementary student in 4th grade at Merrol Hyde and I love this school. It is the best school in my opinion and I have some friends who go to different schools who would agree with me. You will already be learning French and Spanish in the elementary! They have a great computer program as well as music and art! At gym you play lots of fun games like dodgeball and capture the flag! You will also learn about kindness and mindfulness and about your brain. They also have a great soccer team, volleyball team, and basketball team! I highly recommend this school and I hope we see your child as a Merrol Hyde hawk soon!

I've had an incredible experience attending Merrol Hyde. It has truly been a special experience, from being with the same people since 4th grade to traveling across Italy and Greece with my classmates on the school's Europe trip. The faculty here strive for excellence and clearly have a passion for going above and beyond in their work. Although test scores and competition between students can sometimes be disheartening, it is the teachers that remind us of what truly matters: being an uplifting, well-rounded, honest individual. Seminar skills, essay writing, and public presentation/speaking skills are some of the many things I have gained from Merrol Hyde that I believe set it apart from other schools.
I personally love Merrol Hyde. The ability to have a close friendship with every teacher and the other students in grades above and below you is something that I would not trade for anything. At any time you're able to look around and see others with the same passion for learning and advancing as you, which creates a strong pull towards doing the best you can. Along with having a great relationship with the teachers academically, students are able to get to know each of their teachers very well by potentially having them multiple times throughout their high school career and continuously forming a friendship that lasts a lifetime. The constant communication between students and their teachers allow for a fulfilling experience that helps to push them to do their best, in and out of the classroom.
