About Merrymount Elementary School
Merrymount Elementary, an ideally located K-5 school, is located in a neighborhood of quiet streets and private homes. The school grounds include well-groomed grounds and Perkins Field, a grassy-surfaced playground.
The building’s smaller design, dating back to 1928, helps maintain the neighborhood-school atmosphere that is appealing to both families and staff at Merrymount. The brick building, with its red front doors, welcomes students into a carefully maintained school.
In 1977, an addition of a gym/cafeteria, a media center, two classrooms, a staff lounge, storage space, and an elevator enhanced our school and made the building accessible to the physically challenged. Merrymount School is updated and technologically prepared to meet the needs of students in the foreseeable future, yet it possesses the charm and character reminiscent of the days of the “schoolhouse era.”
