Gifted Program

Merrydale Elementary offers Self-Contained Gifted and Scholastic Academy classes for students in PK through 5th Grade. Due to the small class size, our teachers are able to provide individualized instruction to students. Merrydale also provides a pull-out resource program for Scholastic Academy students in grades K-5.  You may contact our Gifted Site Coordinator,  Mrs. Cornelius at or by phone at 225.355.0346 for information regarding Merrydale Elementary.  For more information about the various programs that are offered through the district, please visited
