We recently moved our children (ages 5 and 8) from a private school in the area to Meadowbrook. Their teachers are compassionate, intelligent, and innovative. They make student-centered decisions and seem genuinely excited about trying new methods that might improve student learning (despite the fact that this is more work for the teachers). The building itself is warm, light, and inviting - student art is displayed everywhere. However, despite the addition of a new kindergarten wing this year, it feels chaotic and the school is growing so I would imagine it will continue to feel cramped. In our experience, all staff members value kindness, respect, and safety. The playground is fantastic - very large with great equipment. There is a running club that is a bit hit among the children. There is no achievement gap for students of color at this school - very impressive given that MN has an embarrassingly large gap nationally. We are very grateful to be part of a the Meadowbrook community.

We love Meadowbrook! The climate is caring and nurturing, and the students and staff are wonderful. It is the friendliest school I think I have ever been a part of, and my children love it here. The quality of the teachers and instruction is amazing, too, and we feel so lucky to have this as our public school.

Great parent community. Lots of teacher support, wonderful hands on principal. The motto "At Meadowbrook, we are kind, we are safe, and we are ready." is exemplified in the majority of kids and teachers. The school is a hub for extra curricular activities such as Scouting, summer school and community events.

The kids are really great and the parents are very involved. However, it always feels very chaotic -- possibly has outgrown its space.

The parent-teacher involvement is tremendous. All students are encouraged to learn and develop their skills through innovative teaching methods. The reading scores here have been among the best in the district.
