    "I am an AdaMerritt alumni, I had gone there for 10 years, do NOT let your child suffer the way I did. The administration is bias, the teachers are bullies, and the staff is horrible. The administration disregards anything for the students and only care about how the school looks to others. There is not one this that is so special about this school. It is the opposite of a 'nurturing place for heart and minds'. There are only few teachers that care, most have left. DO NOT be fooled by the Portuguese or Spanish language classes, they do not do anything in these classes and expect the students to already be fluent, as you get older the school gets worst. I would not ever reccomend this school, my only regret is not leaving earlier."

    "School has gone downhill in past few years. Office staff are nasty, rude & too busy on their cellphone to help people who walk in. Most great teachers have left thanks to the horrible working environment & a principal who doesn't care. Admin staff is just as bad as office staff. Their response to bullying is to blame the victim & call them liars. All they care about is aappearances!! They don't acknowledge honor roll students even after 8 years of being model students! Horrible place, extremely dirty, no toilet paper in bathrooms, no more butterfly gardens, no more award ceremonies because they rather spend money on extra security staff although they do nothing productive. Principal & Asst principal are both too busy to meet w/parents when there's an issue. This is not a place that "nurtures every child's mind". Its laughable but truly disheartening! Also, school is against technology! What a joke! They bought smart boards but some teachers are so anti-technology they don't use them. Those teachers don't even post homework on class websites! Get with it Ada Merritt! Your school has fallen behind to better schools like Iprep who know how important tech is for education!!!"

    "This school is amazing! My son is in the Portuguese program. After his 2nd month of Kindergarten, he was reading and writing portuguese just as good as his english. In addition, he is already writing in cursive. The values and attention they give to the students successfull in every aspect. I am proud to be a part of the Ada Merritt Family!"

    "I'm pulling my child out of this school. My child was hesitant to tell me but I soon found out why she was so hesitant. THERE HAD BEEN DRUG ISSUES THIS YEAR. Since MOST were doing it outside of the school they didn't even penalize them. No detentions, no nothing due to the fact that they had been doing it outside of the school. My child told me that at least one of the students did it in the school, but my child didn't want to 'snitch' because he was afraid that the bullies would target him. I tried to persuade him to tell me, but he didn't. What type of school is this where the students are afraid to tell the staff the problem because their scared of the other children? Like I mentioned before, this school has bullying issues. Now I HIGHLY suggest to take your children out of this school. I tried to speak to the principal but yet again she is 'unavailable'. I have had it with this school and I am transferring my kid to another school."
