The comments about the administration of this school are concerning. The entire staff has lost faith in the abilities of the administration of this school to provide guidance, support, and above all leadership. Many staff feel Ms. Daniels and Ms. Thomas are running the show because their boss, Mr. Whaley is out to lunch. Unqualified staff are teaching ESE. Teachers are moved around like pawns on a chess board with little to no say in the matter. Everyone is very unhappy and disgusted with the current state of affairs.

The teachers and staff at this school are nice and the students from what I can tell are well behaved. On the other hand, I am not at all impressed with the principal, Mr.Whaley. At first glance he appears to be a nice person, but he is very condescending and quickly make you feel like you are beneath him. My daughter has been attending this school since she was in the 2nd grade and now she is in the 5th grade. Most of my encounters with this principal has not been pleasurable. At all cost, I prefer to just go around him.

The principal of this school is really uncaring and disrespectful. He only smiles to hide his true self. Once you have a meeting with him, you get to meet his true, evil self. Many teachers also treat the children badly and nothing is done about this. For example, one teacher does not allow the children to talk during lunch, not even with their classmates. One staff member also physically abuses children. The staff member scratched a child and also physically abuses children. The principal chose to simply ignore this as if everything is going well. It seems as if the school only wants to get better test grades. The children's safety and well-being are tossed aside.

This school has a wonderful ESE team that really cares about my child. My child has grown in all areas and am very proud of her success. The staff are genuinely concerned about her growth and put extra effort to help in what ever way they can. However, the present administration lacks judgement in what is best for the ESE students and dept. They also have little empathy for parents' concerns and rarely follow through with parent's requests. This is their only negative.

Meadowbrook Elementary in Fort Lauderdale, Florida is an excellent school. Family friendly staff. Parent involvement is always welcome!! Variety of academic programs for students to take part in. Children are provided adequate time to take part in music, art, physical education as well as field trips and extracurricular activities. Graded an 'A' school! Wonderful School!
