Magnet schools promote student diversity because they are open to students outside the normal school district boundaries and often attract high caliber students through competitive programs.

Merritt Academy Reviews
I absolutely love Merritt Academy. The teachers are professional and as a parent, you are aware of what is going on and where your child stands with their education. I was notified if my child was having problems so that we could work on it at home. Merritt holds each and every student accountable for their actions. Personal accountability is something that I feel that children need to learn at a young age, and Merritt Academy stresses it.
I have 11 year old grandaugther who is in her 2nd year at Merrit. She is doing Amazing...the teachers, the staff have been a big help. She was supposedly flunking in the public school system..basicly because it was more like a paper mill of homework with no explanation..At Merritt she gets the support and is learning again & loving it!
As a parent, I have found the teachers at Merritt Academy to be unprofessional. They are prone to favoritism, and spend the majority of their time knit-picking rather than teaching.
I have several grandchildren in Merritt and 1 just graduated. I find the education at this school is so much better than the public school system. The school is small, teachers know ALL students by name and students know all the teachers.
