Merritt Trace Elementary School Reviews
Trace has a very strong Parent involvement in Education Program (P.I.E.) that helps the community of Trace parents, staff and students stay involved, focused and committed to improving the school. As we parents follow our children through the PIE program and as our children graduate to middle and high school, the hope is that the commitment to the schools
(Hoover Middle to Lincoln High) that our children feed to will continue to stay strong and that our educational community continue improvement.
