Meadows is a rough school, I however lay that burden solely at the feet of the school administration. In my experience Meadows is full of caring teachers. The shear abundance of behavioral problems, and severely below average students that administration has completely failed to effectively deal with is staggering. I have personally spoken with several teachers who expressed concerns about advancing other students, but were forced to send them along despite their abysmal failure to grasp concepts from even prior years. This mentality has fostered an environment that is concerned about how we may/may not hurt parents/childs feelings.

My son has gone to meadows school since he was 5yrs old. Meadows is a school where the children come first. Yes each child is encouraged to do their best but the teachers and the principal dont see to that happening. I dont know when the school year starts off its good but as it goes on it's like they dont care they forget about what they encourage the kids to do, its like there saying these are not my kids. There reading and math program is horrible. The school has not reached its goal in years. they dont have not a one after school programs. they dont do anything for these children but on each holiday have a program. what are they doing with the money they get from us tax paying people. this school has been a big disappointment.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Missouri used the Missouri Assessment Program (MAP) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in math and communication arts, and in grades 5 and 8 in science. The MAP is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Missouri. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test.
