Great academic curriculum; my daughter was very well prepared for junior high school. There were a lot of fun and outdoors activities too. Since this school is next to a beautiful park the kids got the chance to play all kind of games. There was always supervision. The school had some special events and fundraisers throughout the year that were very well visited (and I assume successful). In 6th grade the fun got buttoned down a bit and the kids had more work. Also the teachers didn't want parent volunteers around anymore. Which was fine. It was all to prepare the kids for the next step. We walked to this school every day for the seven years my daughter went there. She had a beautiful childhood in this neighborhood and at her Meadows school. I'm so glad she went there!
Teachers teaches not only academic but also instill good values to their students. Very approchable and sensitive to students/parents needs. Thanks for a job well done!
Meadows has a great reputation. We just started and have already met some awesome parents. And our daughter is flourishing.
I am so very very pleased with Meadows! The principal and the teachers are fabulous! It is a real family atmosphere!
I have 2 kids a Meadows and can only speak highly of this school. The Principal has a great vision for the school and is always there to listen to both the parents and the kids. The office staff are professional, friendly and are always happy to help. I couldn't imagine my kids going through elementary school anywhere else!
My daughter attended first grade at Meadows and had Mrs. Vasquez for a teacher. She had a wonderful experience there. We were very impressed with the administration staff as well. They were very responsive and supportive.
This school prides itself on high test scores and parent involevemnt. The school was so rigid, all they seemed to care about was worksheets getting done. The teacher was not interested in parent volunteers unless we only wanted to make copies for her. There was a great music teacher and the building looks nice thanks to recent renovations.
This school looks out more for themselves than the students. Students education is not their number one priority at all. They have very few Extracurricular activities at the school and even fewer field trips. The teachers tell parents what they want to hear, not what they should hear.
Meadow's parents are very involved with the school. We constantly have fundraisers to provide computers, music, field trips, & more for our students. The teachers care about the students. It's a great school!
Meadows is truly a great school! I visit over 30 schools each semester, and Meadows is among the best, if not the very best. Here are the keys: Principal: Peggy O'Brien is very involved and listens to parents, teachers and administrators. She even traveled over an hour to support the State Champion Meadows Chess Team. Teachers: Teamwork and mentoring make sure that every class is a quality learning experience. Parents: A recent (May, 2004) fundraiser brought in over $20,000! Location: Students can be dropped off from 4 different sides or walk the paseo (cul de sac sidewalk system) to school. Highlights: Newly renovated for Fall '04; New computer lab; State Chess Champs; Drama; Music; Chorus; Robotics; Multimedia; and much more offered.
