They don't care, they are all selfish and only care about themselves. They also grade on how much they like you. I would give this zero stars if possible


Posted August 10, 2013

This school sucks im currently a student and the teachers never know what they're teaching, they always pick favorites, ussually the smartest girls and they NEVER help the students that need help most, this school needs all new teachers that actually know what they're doing like the middle school science teacher... She doesn't know anything just steals stuff off the internet and tells us to figure it out, this place is pathetic

I feel sorry for this parent. He/she wants to blame the school for the child's failure. There was a case on the news recently where a highschool student had a 4.0 gpa but couldn't pass the state required exams for graduation. Did the child learn anything? Were the grades a fluke, or worse yet, given for "being a nice child" Maybe parent and school both were to blame. I would wonder of the child really learned anything in the new school. BTW the parent needs a little more "schooling." Correct spelling, punctuation and word usage would be helpful.

This school is the biggest joke I have ever seen. Reguardless of the grades my child had they were refusing to promote her to the next grade level because she could not read fast enough. Since when does it matter how fast one reads so long as they understand the material they are reading? That was just not ok for me. Poor child had to jump through all the hoops they set out for her, and to no prevail. They would not budge, so with 3 A's 2 B's 1C they still refused to promote her. Transfered schools, and she went on to the next grade just fine.

i think that this is a really great school. i just graduated from there in 2008 and i miss it soo much. this was a great place to have close friends that you grew up with since you were in kindergarten and even the new kids seemed like you knew them for ages. There have been very great and AMAZING teachers at this school that help you understand what you need in the real world. they will help you with any situation you may have. i have loved almost all my teacher. i can count on one hand how many teachers i didnt like but they are all gone now. thank the lord. I love how even when you move on the teachers are still there for you and they NEVER forget you. i love this place and would love for my kids to go here.!!!!

I am a graduate of Meadow Heights and even though it is a small school and it is an every one knows what everyone else is doing thing. I loved it! I graduated in 2003 and I loved the music teacher there! That is where you would find me in the band room! Now i have 1 sister in high school and another in junior high and my brother a senior. Any ways when i decide to have children and when they are school age i probably will send them to Meadow Heights!


Posted December 9, 2008

The school is small, but I love it that way. There are great relationships between the teachers and students. I am doing very well in all my classes because I get more attention and help that I did at my old school. Everyone is close and the teachers are awesome. I love it here! : )

I graduated from Meadow Heights High School in 2006. I think the school could do much better for the students if they would invest more money into textbooks, computer software, and basic supplies that teachers and students need to be able to show progress period. MHHS does not even have enough textbooks to give one to each student. My junior year in one of the classes that I took we had to BORROW text books from another school just so all the kids in my class had the same opportunity to learn. But instead of the school board investing money in basic everyday school supplies they would rather install a metal gate in the cafeteria which never gets used..or the TV's in the caferteria which never get used. The students are the one's who are suffering! It needs to change!


Posted February 7, 2007

I graduated from Meadow Heights in 2001, and I have to say that I loved going to school there. It's small and you don't have to worry about the violence and gangs that you see in big city schools. If I still lived in that area I would be more than happy to send my children to that school. No they don't have all the extras that bigger schools have, but what they lack in activities they make up for with small class sizes, allowing the teachers to be more one on one with the students.

Meadow Heights, although it is an extremely small school among three small towns, has helped me become who I am today. I am currenly enrolled in my first choice college and plan to graduate shorty. The small class sizes at Meadow Heights helped me get help that I needed promtly and I believed I learned an abundance from the teachers and staff. They were also very helpful when it came time to apply for colleges. I recieved many scholarships, grants, and the acceptance letter that I so looked forward to with their help. I just want to say 'Thank you' to everyone that helped me start my life the way I wanted it to be.

Meadow heights is a great school. Although the cafeteria situation may be an issue, that doesn't dirupt the fact that it allows students to go to descent colleges and get scholar ships. I wouldn't send my kids anywhere else.

We recently moved from St. Louis. although meadow heights is a good school overall, there are some reservations shared by my kids and myself. The cafeteria situation, i.e. limited time to eat, is one that must be addressed in the future. The gymnasium facilities are sub-standard to say the least. On the whole I am enthusiastic about our new school, however, there is vast room for improvement. Thank you for sharing this forum with us.

My husband and I come from large schools, and although large schools have their good points, after having students at Meadow Heights, I wouldn't want my kids anywhere else. They may not have all the class choices or extra curricular activities that a large school has, but the programs they do have are good programs. Every year we have girls receiving volleyball scholarships and also students receiving scholastic scholarships, so we must be doing something right.
