We understand that parents have many choices for their child’s education. From other prestigious local private schools to top-notch area public schools the competition is fierce. So what makes families choose Merryhill Elementary School and stay until their child graduates? The fact that so many great things can be found #OnlyAtSummerlin. Let us tell you more.
From grade level luncheons to monthly pizza with our principals, we show appreciation to our students that embody FIERCE. Standing for fearless, innovative, enthusiastic, responsible, compassionate, and enlightened, students are nominated each month by teachers for being all of these things. To be a student at Merryhill Summerlin is to be FIERCE – to be brave in socialization, creative in approaching problems, excited about learning, careful in their choices, kind to all those around them, and open-minded about all the world has to offer.
Field trips at Merryhill Summerlin combine a love for learning with growing to be curious thinkers. Field trips tie in their academic units in some way. This connects the classroom to the community and beyond. These trips away from school are all about experiential learning and see all the world has to offer them while also fostering a sense of independence.
Some of the great trips that our students get to take part in are learning about local Las Vegas history at the Neon Museum, the Hoover Dam, and Red Rock Canyon. Our 4th and 5th graders have gotten to visit Washington D.C., Williamsburg, and our capital Carson City. 2nd and 3rd grade connect their science units to their trips to the planetarium and Springs Preserve.
