The Meher Schools (K-5) and its White Pony (preschool) division offer programs to the community for children two years old through fifth grade, with a focus on serving the needs of working parents by providing child care programs, even for very young children.
We at The Meher Schools believe in the unity of lifeā€”of creeds, races, and all mankind.
We feel most individual achievement is best fostered in an atmosphere of love and security, expressed through creative channels rather than through competition.
We encourage the children to strive for high standards of academic excellence while learning the enduring values of cooperation, community, and service to the world.
