From day one, it was evident that Merryhill is not just a place of learning, but a nurturing environment that fosters growth, curiosity, and a love for knowledge. The curriculum is thoughtfully designed to engage young minds and promote a well-rounded education. My twins have thrived academically, and I am continually impressed by the breadth of topics covered and the creative methods employed to make learning enjoyable. The heart and soul of any school lie in their staff and teachers, and at Merryhill, we have been very impressed with an extraordinary team of educators. The teachers go above and beyond to create a positive and inclusive atmosphere in their classrooms. Their passion for teaching is evident in the way they connect with each student, tailoring their approach to meet individual needs. The encouragement and support provided by the teachers have played a crucial role in shaping my children's academic and personal development. -- Amit (Parent of twins)

It takes a village to raise a kid! Merryhill San Jose is the perfect village for my kid. The teachers and staff remember the names of every kid and know their students individually. Not only academic learning but also social-emotional learning in this school. As a parent, I feel very comfortable putting my kid in this community and am confident my kid will turn to a better person in this environment! Highly recommended-
