Our School

Dear Parent,

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

Since 1997, we have taken pride in providing a high quality private school education for children in pre-kindergarten through fifth grade. Our warm and enthusiastic teachers, our understanding of the needs of each child and our rigorous, standards-based curriculum help students reach their full potential.

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.

Students need more than academic knowledge to achieve future success. While rich and challenging content is the foundation of our curriculum at Merryhill School, we also offer programs to help students make real life connections. Through our Giving Without Walls program, students study social entrepreneurship and learn ways to make a difference in their communities. Past projects include fundraisers for the Salvation Army, Sacramento Food Bank, Alex’s Lemonade Stand and Mustard Seed School.

Learning and enrichment continue before and after school. Our after school program runs from 3:30 to 6:00 pm, and includes fun and educational activities such as homework club, piano lessons, ukulele lessons, glee club, chess club, sports club, science club and technology club. We understand life can be hectic, and are here to accommodate your busy schedule.

To experience our school, please contact me to schedule a private tour. I look forward to meeting with you to gain an understanding of your child’s educational needs, and discuss how we can work together to meet them.
