This is a wonderful school. The teachers in grades K-5 are excellent and the K-5 grades have a wonderful community feel. 6th grade keeps to itself and has a less positive atmosphere, and the teachers are trying to prepare students for Junior High rather than letting them enjoy their last year as elementary schoolers. They are caring and talented. The climate at the school is a little chaotic, probably due to the high number of open-enrolled students (LOTS of parents/cars every morning and afternoon trying to maneuver in the smallish parking lots). Academic standards are high here, and sometimes it might be a bit much. There is more homework than I would prefer. The students are wonderful and the climate here is friendly and caring. Our two children have gone here and have never experienced bullying of any kind, and if they did, I am sure it would be dealt with promptly. The band teacher is excellent, and the administration team is second to none. I recommend this school, especially if you can use the bus system and not have to drive your kids to and from school.

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.

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.
