My oldest daughter started attending Meek in Kindergarten in 2010; despite any rumors of the area, I would definitely recommend this school! The ladies in the office are very welcoming and helpful, the principal is nice and very active in during- and after- school endeavors. My child's teachers, as well as other teachers and staff I have met, are ALL supportive and friendly...and I have met most. The school encourages healthy eating, they have dentists who visit the school. Teachers call AND send home incident reports if anything happens [ex. kid falls and scrapes their knee or kids bump heads]. This is a Title 1 school, so it is very beneficial to low income households! Bus transportation is always available, and even the bus drivers are friendly and make sure the kids are safe! They do so much for the kids, academically and beyond. The whole staff works very well together to keep a safe, organized environment. I will have a second grader AND a kindergartner attending this coming year. They are both excited and absolutely LOVE their school!! There is also Starfish/pre-K available, not affiliated but in the same school- which my youngest attends and is also a great/helpful program!

My two kids attended Kinder and 1st Grade in Meek Milton. They were international transferees to a predominantly black student population. I admit that I was daunted at first, but over next few months I realized that my fears were misplaced. Their teachers and principal were just wonderful. They kept communication lines open and encouraged my children to learn and excel. The school had many programs that benefitted lower-income students. Of course there were kids that could be violent or out of control, but I think there was no one that the teachers could not handle. We met with the teachers frequently, and they wish that more parents would get involved in their children's education like us. My kids stayed in the school only for one year because we had to go back to our home country, but we all cherish the one year that they spent in this school. Very good experience.

Meek-Milton is an excellent school, with great teachers who welcome parents in the classroom. Principal Mrs. Moss is personally envolved and knows her students by name.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

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.

Oops! We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Public and charter school test scores for most states come from the state Department of Education. The most common reasons we might not have this data are either that not enough students took the test or that the school was recently opened, and its scores have not yet been reported.

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.
