Very pleased and impressed with the principal, Mrs. Maki and all the teachers we have interacted with. This is an excellent school for children to attend!

Many families request permissive transfers to go to the school even if they don't live in the Fox Farm area. I believe this is because of the phenomenal teaching and administrative staff, as well as the heavy parental involvement. I'm not going to lie, the success of the school definitely relates to the area its in. The kids that feed the school not only have teachers who want them to succeed but also their parents (a lot of stay at home moms) are pushing hard at home and participating in the children's education through the PTA. The fallbacks of the school are present in the entire district. Every elementary student suffers through disgusting school lunches (I did always love french toast day though) and crazy schedules. If you want your child in a rigorous and supportive environment, Meadowlark is the place to be.

For our area, this is a wonderful school. One of the best. I agree that lunches are out of control, the don't have any time, and though the principal is aware of this, no one seems interested in simply looking at other options. Passed that though, the principal really cares about the kids, there are great and awful teachers just like everywhere, but as for a safe, clean, school it is great. I would also add, that my kids are academicaly doing great, but I can see that if your child struggled at all, this might not be the best school. The do push hard. Priding themselves and being a head of most schools. This can be good for kids like mine, but not for the average kids. Something to think about.

I agree with the parent that posted on August 31, 2006. I have 2 children attending Meadowlark at this time and nothing has changed. The teachers seem great however the my children are bringing home so much homework that it is impossible to keep up with it all. They are feeling overworked and have no free time from the stress at all and they are in elementary school. My husband and I are visiting the idea of homeschool to relieve some of the stress because we feel like this situation is not going to improve and our children are not retaining the information learned in class beacuse it they are rushed through it all. I am so frusterated. Furthermore the lunch situation is just as the other parent wrote. The food is not nutritious and they have no time to eat the sack lunches I prepare because they are rushed.

This is a great school with its focus on academics. The staff is very well trained and knowledgable. They are very careful about structuring activities to be academically related whenever possible. The school is mindful of instructional time and protects fervently. Meadowlark does embrace music, art, and physical education by providing time and specialists for these activities. The school and the PTA sponsor several clubs with the help of parental involvement. Meadowlark is a top notch school with a dedicated staff and lots of parent involvment. You can rest assured your child will get a quality education here.
