I agree with all the positive remarks in the previous reviews. My child started in Gr 6 and we've been very happy at Meadowbrook. What we like most: multiple levels in math & English so all students are appropriately challenged, engaged teachers, terrific heads of school & middle school who welcome parent input and create a welcoming, friendly community. MS sports program is somewhat limited and not "strong" across the board, so if your child wants robust athletic development, they may need to do so outside the school's program.

Excellent academics and very nurturing in the early grades. The teachers really get to know their students. The school makes an effort to really nurture the whole child and provides appropriate challenges to kids who require more. Our child is extremely happy here!

We've been thrilled about the quality of the experience for our child. Excellent academics, with just enough gentle pushing to challenge the bright ones without creating a lot of stress. Small classes, excellent facilities, generally superb teachers. Even more, we like the administration, which has done a terrific job recruiting teachers to the new-ish middle school and creating an environment where cliques and backstabbing are not a problem. Relations among students are friendly even among those that aren't close friends. Support in applying to high schools is very good, with on-target advice and excellent work on the recommendations. We almost didn't look here, as the consultant we were using (we knew nothing about the scene) wrinkled his nose and said 'well, the parents are kind of glitzy and there are a lot of expensive cars in the pick-up line. But the kids are really nice and they work hard.' So correct!

Meadowbrook is an excellent school. The teachers really get to know the kids and have been very responsive to us when necessary. My kids have had a number of superb teachers. They do set high standards for academics so it's best to make sure that is what you want to sign up for. Fabulous arts and very safe environment for kids to branch out--kids end up doing a lot of performing in plays/skits in front of the school. My daughter was very shy about singing in front of an audience before she entered kindergarten; a year later she'd jump onto the school stage with her classmates. They've recently started teaching Spanish beginning in kindergarten. Good athletics--the middle school teams do very well against much larger schools. Have excellent placement to secondary schools. Bottom line--my kids love going there and our family has found a welcoming community.

Meadowbrook is a fantastic school. The academic program is extremely impressive. The classes are small so the students all receive considerable attention. Meadowbrook offers a broad challenging curriculum and has an amazing group of teachers to enrich each students experience. All students at Meadowbrook participate in music (3-4 days/week), sports (4 - 5 days/ week), and art (drawing, ceramics, wood working, etc...) (3-5 days/week). Each of these activities is taught by a dedicated specialist. There is a high level of parent involvement at Meadowbrook. Parents support the students and faculty in many ways including but not limited to community service, fundraising, marketing, financial advising,strategic planning, planning social events, chaperoning field trips, and sharing any relevant interests with the students. Meadowbrook is a truly a great school!

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
