Academically lacking. No cooperation from office staff who seemed to be oblivious as to how to do their job. Number one reason, son is now homeschooled.

Meadowbrook is staffed by caring educators that go above and beyond the call of duty for 'ALL' of our students. Meadowbrook is striving to become an 'Academic Powerhouse' where all students learn and achieve.

Most of the teachers are very caring and supportive and do everything they can to see the students succeed. The school went from a C to a B in 2006 and they keep reaching higher.

There academics is well rounded. If they see the need that you child needs to be push they will put him or her on the advance team. Like every other school they have a chorus and a band. The chorus is ran by awesome andrea green. The band is ran by outstanding bruce green. They have basket ball, track and field and volleyball. These sports are for girls and boys. Even thogh the parents are not invovled in the academics very well they be there to support their children in the extracurricular activities. This school also offer tutoring to help students pass if they are willing to come. This is theawesome thing about this school. Just to note I am a member of the chorus and I am an 8th grader at this school.

I like the school policy because people don't have to worry about what they are going to wear. The policy keeps most kids from getting picked on about what they wear.With uniforms kids don't have to worry about what they wear, or what anybody else wears. I like the policy & keep up the nice work. They will know our name.

This school was one of the worst my child has ever attended. After our experience with this school I now home school my child. They say they have children wear 'uniforms 'to draw attention away from clothing ond on to academics' yet I feel the reason they do it is to draw attention away from all of the other problems that they have. For instance try getting a teacher to allow your child to bring home a book to do homework with, too much of a hassele. I pity the uneducated parent who wants to provide their child with a quality education in this school. Not happening. The teachers' attitudes are that the students don't care so why should they. the pricipal would do better running a jail than a school, the dictoatorship alive in this school helps to rob the children of the desire to learn.

I hate the uniform policy and the teachers are very disrespectful to student (only some) but overall very good school with great opportunities

The FCAT 2.0 is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Florida. The FCAT 2.0 has 5 achievement levels, with level 1 being the lowest and level 5 the highest. Florida considers scores of level 3 and higher to be on or above grade level. The goal is for all students to score at or above level 3.

Each school is assigned a letter grade (A-F) based on three criteria: the overall performance on the FCAT, the percentage of eligible students who took the test, and whether or not students made progress in reading and math. The School Grades are calculated by adding points earned from each of the performance criteria listed above.
