Our School

Our mission is to provide an educational environment that fosters academic excellence, instills a love of active learning, and provides experiences that enable students to acquire a foundation of skills for lifelong learning. 

Dear Parent,

Thank you for your interest in Merryhill Elementary School in Summerlin. I want to take this opportunity to share with you some important information about our school.

Since 1997, we have provided a high-quality private school education for children in kindergarten through fifth grade. We pride ourselves on our warm and enthusiastic teachers, our rigorous, standards-based curriculum and our understanding of the needs of each child.

Our curriculum was designed by the Nobel Learning Education Department, a team of highly-skilled experts in curriculum design, instruction and assessment. We provide opportunities for students to master skills, problem solve, make positive decisions, and practice higher level thinking. Teachers personalize lessons to ensure that instruction is stimulating and challenging for each student. We believe that beyond the core subjects, classes in art, music, technology, Spanish and physical education are essential to educating the whole child.

Rich and challenging content is the foundation of our curriculum; however, students need more than academic knowledge to achieve future success. Through our Giving Without Walls program, students study social entrepreneurship and learn ways to make a difference in their communities. Past projects include holiday food and gift drives and fundraisers for the Heaven Can Wait Animal Society.

Learning and enrichment continue before and after school. Our after school program runs from 3:00 to 6:00 pm, and includes fun and educational activities such as soccer, LEGO® club, study hall sessions and basketball. We understand life can be hectic, and are here to accommodate your busy schedule.

Please feel free to contact me to schedule a private tour. I look forward to meeting with you, gaining an understanding of your child’s educational needs, and discussing how we can work together to meet them.

Sincerely,

Theresa Gotay
Principal, Merryhill Elementary School
