Merrol Hyde practices the Paideia teaching philosophy. In addition to conventional classroom instruction, students regularly participate in Socratic dialogues called seminars, delving deeper into the values and issues presented in the curriculum. Large-scale coached projects give students a chance to synthesize and apply learning in a real and relevant way. Merrol Hyde students work together across curriculum and across grade levels. Children from different backgrounds learn to interact in a healthy, positive environment. The guidance staff, faculty, and administration convey high expectations to the student body, that it is never too early to start on the path to becoming the leaders of tomorrow.
