About Our School

Merriam Avenue School is an elementary school that hosts the grades Pre K through 4th and  is located in Sussex County, New Jersey.  We currently employ 110 professionals who are all highly qualified in their required field. This helps our school to be a productive and successful establishment for our students to learn and grow.  

Within our school day, we offer a selection of programs for our students to get involved in above and beyond our required curriculum. These programs include Gifted and Talented, Watch D.O.G.S., 4th grade Band, and a series of STEM activities. At Merriam Avenue School, we also provide before and after school activities that enrich the student's school day.  They include an Enrichment Program and a Just Read Program  for grades 2 - 4, and an intramural program for grades 3 and 4.
