As a parent I'm surprised there aren't more reviews of Towne Meadows on Great Schools. While my son loves this school because it's "so easy," I am struggling to love it as a parent. While most of the parents of my son's friends had decided to bring their children to charter schools in the area they had researched and fell in love with, I decided that the neighborhood school was just fine for my child because I thought no matter what school he attended he would continue to be challenged in his learning BUT every time I go into my son's classroom the teacher is working with the lowest students. The only communication I ever get about what is happening in the school is a weekly email from the principal about events happening school wide (which is awesome), but nothing from my child's teacher about how my child is doing academically, socially, about what they are learning in class, ideas how to help him grow in his learning, and there is only one conference a year and it was at the beginning of the school year. There are also 30 plus kids in his class. I will stay one more year just in case it's just the particular teacher my son has, but I've been disappointed so far.

Fantastic School! My daughter has attended Towne Meadows for 3+ years (Pre-K through 2nd grade) and I have been amazed at the quality of the Principal, the teachers, the programs and the environment. I can honestly say that each teacher that my daughter has had at Towne Meadows has been special. I could go on with specific stories, but it would take too long! Thank you Towne Meadows for going above and beyond when it comes to the most important thing in the world - our children!

Three of my children have attended Towne Meadows. I have loved each teacher they have had--caring, professional, and able to give appropriate amount of work. Communication between home and school is excellent. Principle knows families by name. the staff is stable and year to year traditions in curriculum and activities create a secure atmosphere.

I have been involved in Towne Meadows for many years with several children going through the school from K-6th grade. The class size is high, and I don't know if it is a Gilbert 'thing', but teachers deal with their students as individuals without concern for the number. We love the programs and the stability of the staff and principal. The principal has been there from the beginning, she is visible and very hands-on. She knows the children and families by name. There is continuity at all levels-- Preschool through 6th grade. The staff is friendly and there is a lot of communication by e-mail and newsletters home. Thank You Towne Meadows!

We are new to the school and are very happy with the school. The teachers are exceptional and very on top of things. Both my sons teachers communicate by email and newsletters regularly and respond quickly to questions and concerns. The principal is very hands-on and knew my kids names the first week of school. Any behavioral problems are dealt with quickly. The Accelerated Learning Program (ALP) for Math has been challenging and appropriate for my son. The Fun Runs are a highlight for us and encourage physical fitness. The Dad's Club and PTSO are very supportive of the school and dedicated. There seems to be a lot of parent involvement and the teachers always welcome parent participation. Office staff are friendly and know each child. A top notch school.

My kids attended this school for several years. Overall it was a good school. My concern was the large class sizes. Especially in the lower grades. Mainly for this reason I moved them to a smaller school with less kids per class.

I am very impressed with the quality of education my son is getting from this school. His teacher not only challenges him, but encourages him to be a better student. His favorite after school activity are the Fun Runs, where he gets to run after school and still interact with his school mates. There is great communication between the principal and the parents (newsletters, even through email), with excellent programs for parents to be involved in their students education.

Excellent staff. Towne Meadows has 3 multi-age 2nd-3rd grade classrooms with a fabulous team of teachers who provide for individual growth. Many after school opportunities for a variety of music clubs. Super teacher/student ratio around 25 for 3rd and under.

My child started going to this school a year and a half ago. So far i have found that the teacher really do pay close attention to each students needs. My child seems to be challenged with there acedemic programs therefore keeping her interested.

I have been very impressed with the entire staff at Towne Meadows. My son is now in the 3rd grade, and everything we've experienced has been positive. We're going to be moving at the end of this school year, and we are hating the thought of having to change schools. We love Towne Meadows!

At first I was not impressed with Towne Meadows due to the class size and what seems to be a high amount of children with special learning needs and not enough teacher assistance in class. We came from a blue ribbon school and loved it. Every child that had special learning needs had a teacher assistant. After being at Towne Meadows for a while I now realize they have great teachers. The reason for class size and lack of teacher assistance is due to economic reasons and it is a state wide problem. I now have an added respect for the teachers at Towne Meadows.
