    Your participation is essential in helping us form a more complete picture of technology use for learning in your students’ lives.

School History

  • Merrifield Elementary opened in 1962, with additions in 1963, 1968 and 1980 and renovations in 2003 and 2004.  The school was named for the Merrifield family, a pioneer family of southwest Dallas County.  The school serves grades PK-4.

    Merrifield Family 
    Merrifield Elementary is named for the Merrifields, a pioneer family from the late 1800s who owned and farmed the land on which the school was built. Several members of the Merrifield family served on the school board in early years, and the family also donated the land for the original brick building that is now Central Elementary.
