Our School

Welcome to Merrymount!

6 students pose in a line outside an exterior building door.Welcome to Merrymount Elementary School, a warm and welcoming K-5 school serving Quincy’s Merrymount neighborhood. Our well-maintained grounds include Perkins Field, a grassy playground for our students to enjoy.

Our school's smaller design, dating back to 1928, helps maintain the neighborhood-school atmosphere that is so appealing to families and staff. With its distinctive brick structure and inviting red front doors, our school provides a sense of belonging from the moment students step through our doors.

The building includes a gym/cafeteria, a media center, and an elevator, ensuring accessibility for all. While our school remains updated and technologically prepared to meet the needs of students in the foreseeable future, it still exudes the charm and character reminiscent of the "schoolhouse era."

We offer a rigorous academic program that challenges students to reach their full potential and we are committed to providing our students with the tools they need to succeed.
