Meadowview Elementary school is in no way a 1 out of 10. Having had my daughter there for two years I can say that the administration is one of the most caring and hardworking teams I have been around and that includes having a child attend Woodward Academy. I think the biggest knock on the school is the class size. My daughter was challenged and pushed by her teachers and I would rate the school as at least a 6/10.
I read a review posted by a parent about Meadowview and I have to shed some light on the subject. I have had four children attend Meadowview and I count it a wonderful blessing. The administrative team is very accessible and friendly. The teachers and front office staff do an excellent job. Some of the programs like art, music and P.E. have been reduced due to Dekalb County's budget woes. Class sizes have increased significantly and the school was combined with two failing schools last year. In spite of the fact that many parents don't participate and send their children to school with little or no regard for authority, Meadowview has done an excellent job. The county or the federal government really needs to pay schools like Meadowview more because they have to put up with so much apathy from students and parents. I see how hard they work to teach students who are fighting against getting an education and they should be commended. This is one of the best schools in the county and my four children have been the beneficiaries of a wonderful education at Meadowview in spite of the issues that are forced upon the school due to parents not doing their jobs at home.
Meadowview Elementary meets the mark in some places, but misses it in some key areas of student development. Their biggest failure is that there is no comprehensive physical education program. Art and music interests aren't nurtured. My fifth grade student, who has performed exceptionally her entire elementary school tenure, is in a crowded classroom where more shouting and crowd control goes on than learning. Parent teacher conferences aren't scheduled to accomodate the working parents. The children are given "busy work" in their science and social studies classes. This is a case of a very passionate Principal and a teaching staff who is forced in a position to baby sit all day. I'm so very glad that my child only had to endure this for one year.
The staff is very friendly and accessable. Also, they care a lot about the kids and their self image. They shape them to forward think about college.
I have been in and out of Meadowview Elementary on many occasions. I find the staff to be very dedicated for the most part and most students have done very well on annual tests. What disappoints me most about Meadowview is the staff that works in the front office. They have been rude and disrespectful to students, as well as parents and visitors.
Teachers and staff show individualized concern for all students. The curriculum is adequate. Most students are well disciplined.
