Meadowlark does an outstanding job challenging each student academically along with creating a safe and caring environment. Both of my children attended Meadowlark and could not have had a better learning experience to prepare them for middle school and high school! Great teachers teaching character education! If you want your child challenged academically, Meadowlark is the place for you! If not interested in challenging your child, I would suggest to go to a different elementary!!! This is an EXCELLENT elementary school!!! Very blessed to have my kids attend!!!

My kids have had an amazing experience at Meadowlark. The principal has an open door and gets to know each student. The PAC (Parent Advisory Council) is very active. I can't say enough good things about Meadowlark!
