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.

Incredible parental involvement, community contribution, and teacher commitments to each student!

Posted November 18, 2006

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


Posted October 11, 2004

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.
