THIS IS THE WORST SCHOOL EVER! I kept being tardy because the classrooms outside were way too far and they only give you 4 mins. I tried to explain but I got ABC. Do NOT LET YOUR CHILD GO TO THIS SCHOOL! Violent teachers, wrong facts, teachers go too fast.

Meadowlawn is a great school. My son just completed 6th grade and enjoys the school very much. They offer a rigorous curriculum and a lot of extra curricular activities and electives. They have a great gifted, IMAST and MEGSSS program. The school is committed in providing a well rounded education. Administration is great to work with. They have an open door policy and I love the weekly phone messages. It is a great neighborhood middle school !!!! Go Lancers !!!

Meadowlawn Middle School is worst school ever!!!!! First, teachers in that school teach children the wrong facts. I think they are not educated enough to be a teachers. Second, they discuss International politics with their students. In that point, they are making raceial differences between the students,. -My dear Meadowlawn teaches; Person is innocent until proven guilty, so please do not discuss International politics anymore. One day somebody is going to sue you for discrimination".

Meadowlawn Middle School is a great neighborhood school!! MMS has many great qualities to meet parents and students' expectations such as gifted and AP academic programs as well as a wide variety of student activities to foster leadership, theatrical creativity and more! Parents have many opportunities to get involve with this school especially by volunteering through School Advisory Council (SAC) and PTSA. You should really consider this school for your child.

Meadowlawn is awesome!!!!! It's so much better than i expected, since it is my first year there. My teachers are all great and they do try and make all my classes easier to understand since they are all advanced, and we are only 6th graders. Meadowlawn rules!!! Go Lancers!!!!

My daughter has been going to this school for several months. Even though, we were told that is is a terrible school, we took our chances. My daughter is doing great in all her advance classes, and is enjoying, the new friendships that she has made, as well as receiving straight A'S. I have not had any problems, and the support from the sixth grade secretary had been awesome.

I am a former Meadowlawn Middle School student. I am now in 8th grade at Seminole Middle School, but I went to MMS for 6th and 7th grade. I was (and still am) in the Megsss, Imast, Gifted, and advanced language arts programs and I maintain straight A's. MMS fostered my love for school, despite poor safety and the roughness. It is in somewhat of a ghetto, but the school is clean and has excellent teachers. The extra curricular activities here are wonderful, with a very close-knit group.

Meadowlawn Middle school is a wonderful middle school taht I would recommend to any student or parent, I am an eighth grader this year and the quality of education is great the teachers are really helpful and are always willing to help you out to make the grade as long as you are willing to participate, the extra-curricular activites are of a great variety, basket ball, track and feild, cheerleading, the National Junior Honors Society, and much more. Also, parents are always stressed about partcipating with the school,even to volunteer as an assistand. Meadowlawn is a wonderful school and learning enviroment.

There have been a couple of incidents at this school when my children have been threatened by other students. The principal and counselors were a tremendous help in solving these problems. It would have been a much different outcome if I hadn't received their help.

I would not recommend this school at all. Although hte principlal, Mr. Cardone, tries to do his best, it's still not enough. Students are tough and mean, and often fight because someone accidentaly bumped him/her in the hall. The 8th grade assistant principal, Mr. Joyer, punishes students at all costs. My son says there's alot of racism towards foreign students and stereotypes. Bullying is a big problem. My other son who is in 6th grade comes home and cries, explaining me how an 8th grader was picking on him and calling him bad names all the time, and shouting insults often in a manner of bad language. I moved my 2 sons to a private school since it's common here in Pinellas that schools are very bad. And what do parents do about it?... nothing! It's a horrible school, I definitely do not recommend it!

Meadowlawn is not a bad school. Exept it could use some serious adjustments. Bullying and harrassment is a problem. It is not the staff's fault, it is the student/parent's because it is the student's responsibility to control his/herself.

I am a former student of Meadowlawn Middle School. I attended this school all three of my middle school years, now I am currently enroled at Northeast High School. In the years I spent at Meadowlawn I have never once had an issue with the teachers or administration, nor have have any objections to the way it was being run. I am and was then a stait-A student and was involved in many extra-curricular activities including Symphonic band, yearbook staff, spanish club, and National Junoir Honor Society. I truly believe that the students are what make a school, not the staff. A student that enjoys learning, participates in school activities, and has an invloved parent they will be more likely to stay out of trouble than a student who only goes to school to see his/her friends and gets by by doing the bare minimum. The pricipal, Mr. Cardone was constantly reminding students to have pride for their school and make this middle school experience the best it could be. If there were ever servere behavoir problems Mr. Cardone would often handle them himself by talking with the student and/or parent instead of simply suspending him/her. There are also several teachers from 6th, 7th, and 8th grades that were always willing to assist a student with any problems they may have, whether they be concerning the student's home life, work habbits, or social issues. The teachers were always supportive of students decisions and actions while always encouraging them to strive to be better. Above all, it's the parents responsibility to provide their sons/daughters with a positive attitude about school, and in turn they will spread that attitude to their peers making their learning environment more joyful. Of course Meadowlawn's staff will always be there to help out with that. Over all, I thought and still think that Meadowlawn Middle School played a vital in making me and others that attended the school the succesful high school students we are today. I believe that they would all agree. Thanks.

I don't think this school is concerned about the safety of the kids. The man in the golf cart about runs kids off the sidewalk because he must be in a hurry, and he plain just doesn't watch where he's going! Also, kids are supposed to wear bike helmets?--Yeah, right-the school should be doing more than 'citing' the kids--they should confiscate the bikes until the kids are willing to comply with the state law.
