I will NOT be sending my son here next year. The office lady is a NIGHTMARE very rude and impatient. My sons teacher was young and had no experience. Please read all the reviews before sending your child here. They do not get 1 on 1 time..
Meadowlane is blessed to have a caring and dedicated faculty. If a child is recommended for TK1 it is because he or she is bright and has mastered all kindergarten level skills. TK allows a child who is developmentally young the time needed to mature. The demands of school are greater than ever before and there is no benefit to being the youngest child in the class. The benefits of being more mature are too numerous to count. Many teachers make this choice for their own children because of the long term benefits that it offers. TK is a gift of time and a blessing to young children!
My child was recommended for TK1 in April after receiving all 3's out of 4 in every subject all year long. If she wasn't ready to be moved forward, any of her report cards should have told us that. West Melbourne is a great community but unfortunately it is being let down by this school.
Great school! Great teachers! My child is excelling so quickly! I highly recommend this school!
The best school in Brevard county. We had a bad experience with a very expensive private school that hired an inefficient teacher that would throw students belongings on the floor. Meadowlane is a safe and nurturing school. We feel truly blessed to be here.
Meadowlane Is a JOKE!! 21 kids in a class is way to many for 1 teacher. They are way over rated. The school has about 800 students in only k-2. The majority of the teachers are super young with little experience and NO PATIENCE. Being that I volunteered a lot last year I was able to see the fake picture they put out. I was so excited to have my child at meadowlane I moved into a neighborhood were I pay double in rent just to get an A school. Well A doesn't mean anything. Students r constantly moved after the first month due to over crowding and then they have split classes of K/1. I feel my child is not learning at a level he should be how can he when classes are so big. I've tried to talk to principal and I get know where. . I really wish I could move my child before it hurts his learning!!
Our experience wasn't so great. First grading came & teacher already made her mind up, My son was going to repeat kindergarten even after all the work we have done it wasn't enough because her mind was set already, he was going to repeat. She made the same decision for the other students in class in the beginning of school year, others going to TK1 and repeating. She never gave any of the kids a chance to show what they can do because her mind was made already. We move and was glad that we did because my son move to a new school. The teacher recommended my son for TK1 since she didn't have enough time with her and so far she said he was doing good. He only had 20 days with the new teacher & the teacher saw he was improving.Not to mention she had behavior issues with other kids and my son was constantly being bullied by another kid in her class and she never told me about it. My son finally told me a kid would use his head as a ball going back and forth on the kids hand. Too big of a school, it feels like walmart version... West Melbourne is a great place to live it just sucks that your only option is Meadowlane. A lot of young new teacher & only few teacher w/ years of experience.
We are new to the area. Our daughter attended a Catholic School in another state which as result of her class size, and father's military deployment she is now struggling academically. I am often at her school and working hard to help my daughter obtain the necessary skills to help her succeed. I am very happy with her 1st grade teacher Mrs. Steger for always communicating with me about my daughters progress and academic areas to focus on.
Grrr.... I wrote a follow-up to a review I'd written previously and Great Schools ate my original review, which explained why and how much I love this school. Don't have time to rewrite my original review, but just wanted to chime in on how fantastic Meadowlane is. Though a big school, it feels small. We considered Holy Trinity and tried to get in to the WM School for Science before deciding to send our kids here, and after a year, there's no way I'd send them anywhere else. We love Meadowlane!!!!
Meadowlane primary is a wonderful school! Great group of teachers, students, parents and staff.
What a great school! I was initially worried about the school b/c of the size but both my husband and I are very, very pleased. The teachers, at least those we've experienced and those of our friends, are fabulous. The communication with our teachers is more than I expected and I am so happy about that. My son, who is very bright but bores very easily is finally excited to go to school. This is the first time I've gotten info on what he did during his day! It's also a wonderful school to volunteer with. A great many parents are involved both with the classrooms as well as with Meadowlane's well-organized volunteer program, Apple Corps. Go Mustangs!
Meadowlane Elementary and Intermediate schools are absolutely amazing. My daughter, who has a few special needs regarding reading and math, has thrived at this school. Her teacher this year, Mr. Boyer, is an absolute God-send. He's really worked hard to adhere to my daughter. She's used to learning how to adhere to schools and what they offer, but this year she's actually learning - because she's comfortable. :) We'd move just to stay in this school zone - hands down.
Meadowlane Elementary is a true community. The culture is positive and nurturing. This makes my children thrive both academically and socially. I am also impressed with their traditions and high expectations! This is the best school in Brevard County!
Meadowlane Elementary is the best school ever. I have one child that went there and it was so great for her. She is now in High School in all honors classes. My son is now there in first grade and his teacher is a reading wizard. It is the best school. I would move just to be in this school district.
A very positive experience for my child--Meadowlane offers a challenging curriculum in a very caring setting.
Is a nice school. Teachers challennge the students. They have recognitions certificates every month which keep the students working hard. Good extracurricular activities. One thing I really like is that as a parent if you want to help and going to be in contact with students, they perform a background check. I really like the school.
Child drop off and pick was horribly planned and causes traffic nightmares. However, the school thrives with children during afterschool activities. The smiles on all the children's face show good relationships with the teachers.
