The teachers and staff are wonderful. We did have issues with one of the first grade teachers Mrs Thomasma. Thankfully all the other teachers were so great that I would not want to send my kids any place else. This school has a very positive environment.
The teachers are great, and are continually learning themselves. The Principle is FANTASTIC, she ALWAYS puts the children first and is sensitive to their individual needs. One of the things I really like is how they start their day, someone greets the kids at the buses or classroom and personally says good morning and shakes each child's hand letting them know they matter and are cared for, what a great way to start the day. They have a program in place which encourages positive behavior verses focusing on negatives only. Mustang Pride system. We have three children one is special needs and one is an over achiever, I love how the school has programs in place that are appropriate for BOTH kids. I am so thankful for this school and the community that it is, there are lots of family activities put on by the school and the PTA, to further develop that feeling of community and to foster solid relationships. Would and have recommended this school to my friends that are both in district and out of district!!
the teachers here rock!! They are able to gear lessons to each child as needed, The music program is fabulous, from the recorders, to the ukulele program was loved by everyone, and I must say that the music program they put on (once a year) is the best!!! She is always mindful of the time, and keeps things moving, entertaining and delightful!
Again I have a child who excels in most areas and she comes home with work that is still challenging for her, and I have another child who struggles and should be sent home with lots of homework, for things that are not getting done in school, however they also know that it is just as important to get play time outside and with family as it is to do work... they do expect your child to read everyday which is awesome!
Our son has exceeded the school district's expectations for the year and is only 2/3 of the way through the year. I appreciate that the teachers develop the kids at their pace and allow them to move ahead as they're able so that they remain engaged and challenged.
The school has a program called Mustang Pride and the kids are taught various ways that they can earn Mustang Pride "tickets" from any school staff who witness them exhibiting positive behaviors. They can redeem these tickets throughout the year for rewards. This has been very successful in eliminating negative behaviors and trips to the office.
We love Meadowlawn! It is the perfect size for an elementary, not too big or overwhelming but yet offers great diversity, many activities and opportunities. The teachers, principal, and parents are very involved, and the kids are taught various ways to have pride in themselves and their school. So glad to live in this community!
The office staff clearly HATES their jobs!! They are rude even to parents with a first time parent going through the school system with a kindergartener. Very condesending and rude to the parents. I honestly will be switching schools next year although her teacher seems SO wonderful!!
