School Reviews

We love the Merit School of Stafford on Pkwy Blvd. We have a private school kindergartener and 1st grader mid-way through the year already and couldn''t be happier. Well worth the tuition to get small class sizes (only 9 kids in 1st grade class, and 17 in kindergarten), and an amazing facility with top of the line support from the director and staff. Teachers are great and kids are doing well. They test using PALS which is same as public school, so we are confident our kids are getting same or better than what the nearby public schools offer. Highly recommend to anyone considering this great school.

Facility is great. We enrolled because the cost was reasonable, they follow same curriculum as public schools, with same tests (SOL, PALS etc) and the offer on-campus before & after care. We will post an updated review after we get our KDG and 1st Grader started in the Fall.
