I have 2 children At Meadow Park, and so far the teachers, the Principal, and the rest of the staff have all been outstanding. There is a wonderful balance of academics and developing social skills, teachers have high expectations of their students, they are firm, but caring, demand a lot a, but not more than the kids are capable of. Wonderful, exceptional school, I couldn't be happier.

This is the most balanced school I have seen in the area. Great Staff and Great schooling atmosphere. Also classrooms look fresh and well lit that promotes a good positive atmosphere for the kids.

My family have recently relocated to the USA from the UK, where my three daughters grades 1, 4, & 6 went to a very good school so didn't know what to expect from a local school in the USA. My daughters have settled into Meadow Park exceptionally well thanks to both the staff and the very welcoming kids there. Although some of the subjects they are currently studying they have touched on before in the UK they are learning them in a different way. Whether it is a new way to calculate percentages or studying a different aspect of ancient Greece, Grade 6. Learning about California Missions or being given extra math packs in Grade 4, as my daughter had already covered some of the curriculum math, or working hard on the whole busy of math and reading in Grade 1. My daughters are learning new things and having fun. I would recommend Meadow Park Elementary to anyone. My only negative would be the use of computers in spelling tests as in the USA you have your own way of spelling and whose to say which is right.

I love, love, love this school! My son has been at this school since 2011. We have had nothing but a pleasant experience with everyone on campus.

I am not a parent at this school (yet!) but I have just moved into the area and called the school to find out if they do school tours. They don`t, but I spoke to a lovely, friendly, helpful lady in the office who made me feel very welcome, took as long as I needed to answer all my questions and actually LISTEN to me (which was just what I needed as I am so overwhelmed right now with everything I have to do) and left me with a fabulous impression of this school and their frontline staff. On the strength of that impression alone I am keen to try and get into this school area if we can.

Meadow Park is an excellent school, just having received the California Distinguished School award for second time. We love the teachers at the school and there are plenty of parent volunteers with a very active PTA. The atmosphere of the school is very warm and offers that small school feel where you get to know many families. The principle is very approachable and stays in close communication with students / parents alike.

Don't let your child buy lunch at this school except on pizza day when the food is purchased from an outside vendor. They sell moldy cheese and other horrifying sickening lunches. The kids have known for years.

Both the teachers and staff are very active in the students life. I am always informed of everything that is going on and they have great tools for students to learn

Meadow Park is a wonderful neighborhood school! I have had three children go through this school and they have all had wonderful educational and social experiences at the school. Because Irvine has 'school choice,' we have explored other schools, one child attended an AAPAS program at another Irvine school for a year, and another attended a 'basics plus' school for kindergarten. I guess you always wonder if the grass is greener on the other side. We have always returned to our 'own backyard,' Meadow Park, which is a true community of teachers, parents and students committed to learning and nurturing the students' growth in all ways.

My children have been at Meadow Park Elementary since Kindergarten. They both have excelled tremendously academically and made many friends. The school is rich in extracurricular activities and fundraisers. Our technology department is top of the line. I have yet to be disappointed with any teacher there. They are extremely well prepared and FUN!!! They are knowledgeable and well trained, but most of all, THEY CARE AND LOVE WHAT THEY DO and it shows!!!!

This school has a great source of parent volunteers from which the staff and children both benefit. The children, overall, are a very nice group. Like any school, some teachers are truly gifted and some are not. The current principal is leaving and going to a new school September, 2007. I do not think highly of her and look forward to a change of leadership. This is an older, somewhat crowded school and is not in the top 10 in Irvine.

I have been a parent of Meadow Park for the last 2 years. I am very satisfied with the principal Mrs. Bowers, the staff, and extra curricular activities. There is no better school! My children are thriving in this environment!
