My daughter is in the 6th grade class at meadowview,I really like the math teacher Ms.Matos she was really caring and tried to help me get my daughter in honors classes. The school seems to be pretty clean.

My school which is Meadowview has done an excellent job with my grand kids. There's always room for improvements in all schools but I think Meadowview has done an excellent job with the kids.

i was a student at meadowview up to sixth grade and one year we were so bad that the bord thought 6th grade was not ready to go to southwood for 7th grade. i agree with them because the students always fought each other the school did'nt have many outdoor games and the only time they did it was 95 degress hot and many kids had nose bleeds and the 2010 princeiple maid us stay out side.there are many bright students at the school but they are in the shadows of the inappropriate students i am an eye witness of the behavior of the students since 07 that i know some things that the techers would never get to know. many students deserved so much better then the school. there are some kids were so scared to come to school thinking no one will be there for them and they will not unless you go threw with something called pure pressure. take it from an eye witness of the school and not a bord member of the disrict. any one going to the school just please"Make the right choise" because after you do something you regret "Theres No turning back". clas of 07-11

I think Meadowview is improving. I have read the previous reviews and I can honestly say its for the better. They have had a PTO leader for awhile now and there is definitely more parent involvement (not to say they couldn't use more, because that should definitely be a goal) They now have a yearbook that the student work on themselves, a choir and pom pom squad. There are a few teachers that seem overwhelmed, but most of them can handle their class. Administration seems to be consistant when it comes to discipline. The school has way to go for 5 stars but at this moment they get 4 for improvement. I hope they continue to improve.

Meadowview and the entire district 160 has declined as far as children respecting their peers, teachers and faculty. Very little parent participation. I am almost always attending whatever the school has for the students and I see the same parents all the time. The faculty is too passive regarding enforcing the school handbook rules. The mayor doesn't show interest in the children. He never interacts with any school events. It is so sad that within the last five years that children are no longer important enough to help them excel. There are several good teachers at Meadowview but most parents never take time off to assist in the classrooms. When the students get out of order rules from the handbook need to be enforced because the children are not respectful. I will admit that this year is better then 2010. Last year the fifth graders were out of control that I volunteered as many days as I could to help out my child's teacher. The teacher was a great but decided she could no longer deal with disrespectful children and is not there any more. This is so sad to lose good teachers because everyone refrains from working together. I pray it is better in the future.

This school has absolutely no organization, yes it is new but their times are messed up and they don't have any kind of parent access to what their children do. There is no PTA or PTO at the school and the parents have no access to the principal in order to disscuss concerns.

Academic programs seem to be kind of on grade level. My son is part of their 'gifted' program, so much more is expected of him. They don't have enough extracurricular activities at all. They sometimes have a music class and gym but that's it. Parents aren't much involved. I believe that the children run the administration and that's very sad to me. There's no diciplinary actions for children who should receive it neither. I would not send my child back to Meadowview School next semester. I'm not very happy with that school at all.

I am grandparent to two children at Meadowview School. My grandson is in fourth grade and my granddaughter is a fifth grader. I tutor them both after school using one of the Hippo based computer programs. My children only work at grade level because of the extra help that I give them I feel. I am constantly encouraging them to read and try to keep them interested in materials that are actually a grade ahead of them. I am currently very strongly considering removing them from Meadowview because I don't think they get the motivation necessary to promote learning. I have tried to go online to access a couple of programs that were sent home stating they were to aid the children, but they are not available as stated. I am very willing to work along with the teachers if only the school would make the programs available.

I have 3 children in Meadowview & unfortunately, the lack of respect that the other students show the teachers henders the teachers ability to teach, which henders my kids ability to learn. There are too many unnecessary distractions. It is for this very unfortunate reason that my husband & I have decided to look into other educational options. I need to know that my kids are in a 'safe' learning environment and as long as they are in meadowview, that comfort level is not there.

I believe Meadowview School is a good school which can become a Great School with some of the following modifications. Meadowview needs to higher more teachers and support staff to accommodate the influx of new students. The classroom sizes are expanding and the teachers are being stretched. Meadowview could benefit in expanding the school size to have more classrooms and an auditorium for school programs or plays. Some extracurricular activities would stimulate and motivate the children with a Physical Education class daily. The American Heart Association recommends that children receive at least 30 minutes of moderate exercise daily and another 30 minutes of vigorous exercise three to four times a week. Meadowview needs to provide the children with exposure to cultural experiences that are valuable to their learning. Meadowview needs to provide field trips back to the curriculum.

Although Meadowview has indicated it has improved to meet 'The No Child Left Behind' program, the academic standards are poor. The bar has been lowered to make it easier to reach instead of the academics raised to meet the bar. I tutor my grandson and am disappointed to see the repetition of single number addition and subtraction on a daily basis. Multiplication and division were included 6 months into the school year. The curriculum is not challenging and does not move at a fast enough pace. Seminars are being offered in 2 or 3 sessions, again 6 months into the year, to assist parents with teaching techniques and tools to help at home. The school year is almost over..where were these seminars in September when it might have helped? Compounded with the disciplinary problems, there is little time for activities. The basics of reading, writing and math are free.

I think that this school is one of the worst schools I've ever known. Then again every school in this district is the pits. My daughter isn't learning anything because her teacher doesn't know how to teach nor can she control the children in her classroom. My child is not happy at this school at all. It is time for some major restructering. Shanett Jones

After attending a meeting at Meadowview for the school being put on probation.I saw that the administrators have know clue on handling the substitute teacher problem.They feel they can keep a substitute teacher in a class room for a few months and the children would still get a quality education .This is the type of backward thinking that is keeping the school on probation for three years now.

This school is really bad. I don't know where the actual problem lies. The children do not meet state standards, but it seems like the standards for the administration or teachers fail to have any valid structure. Nobody is held accountable to anything and the children are the ones who are suffering.
