District Welcome

On behalf of the entire Merton Community School District, I would like to welcome you to our educational community.  Our district holds an outstanding reputation of academic excellence, high student engagement, and a strong commitment to preparing all students for college and career readiness in this ever changing 21st century.  Our highly qualified and outstanding staff have enabled our students to enter into the very intensive college preparatory Arrowhead High School.  With an infusion of instructional technology, a challenging curriculum, and student access to 21st century learning tools, we believe Merton students are prepared to compete in this changing society and global market.  Our district is committed to developing the whole child with a strong commitment to the arts, physical education, music, technology, and world languages.

In addition to continuing to create ways of engaging our students at a high level through 21st century skills, this year our district will be focusing preparing to implement the newly adopted Common Core Standards in Writing and Mathematics.  Our buildings will continue meeting the needs of all of our learners through implementing intervention blocks so the needs of all learners can be met.  With common academic standards, our schools also have begun implementing the “Merton Way.”  The Merton Way helps us establish common expectations to ensure our learning environments foster strong creativity, communication, critical thinking, and problem solving.

I welcome you to visit our schools at anytime.  We believe we are a gem in the Lake Country Area.  Our staff and community have a strong desire to ensure our students are receiving a great education with a very challenging curriculum and strong teaching practices.  As a district, we continue to transform ourselves to meet the needs of the 21st century student.  Welcome to the Merton Community School District!
