I am very unhappy at this school. The teachers here are absolutely despicable. There are a few good teachers at this school, but I am getting real tired of a lot of teachers crap. I'll go ahead and tell you the pros and cons of this school. Pros: Clean in most areas. Little to no violence. In a good location. Great students. Cons: Horrible staff and administration. 1. Unfairness 2. Bad Attitude 3. Pick Favorites 2. Somewhat Judgmental Dirty bathrooms. Students feel as though they are being treated unfairly, hence hating the teachers. I am a student, here, and I am very disappointed.

Meadowlark provides excellent academic opportunities for your children, although it is becoming increasingly overcrowded each year. The current principal has changed the environment since his arrival 3 years ago. He is a hands off principal that does not interact with the children, and he is definitely not invested in the education/experience of the special needs child. Expect inflexibility and need for power. The assistant principal is wonderful, and many of the teachers are exceptional. The PTA is extremely involved, and due to the overall affluent population of the area, there are wonderful resources for the children. Overall, a great academic school with minimal diversity and a dud principal

Overall, a good school. Just like other schools, there are some bad teachers, some good teachers and a few amazing teachers. Two of my children attended this school from K - 5. Due to large classrooms and lack of principal leadership, my youngest will not be attending this school. All of the fifth grade students are in the "pods" because of overcrowding. Look into all your options before sending your child to Meadowlark Elementary.

My son is in Kindergarden at Meadowlark and I could not be more pleased! The teachers are wonderful. And the parent involvement is amazing!

Meadowlark is a very good school. Very progressive. The children get a lot of personal attention from their teachers.

We've had a great experience at Meadowlark! Communication with teachers has been great, and the office staff cares about the students.

For safety and lack of high quality education, I took my second grade student out of this school after 2 years. There were very few opportunities to experience the arts. Music and arts/crafts type activities were offered on a rotating schedule every 12 days. There were no--zero--opportunities for creative art in two years. Meadowlark is billed as a 'school of math & science' yet science activities were offered once (sometimes twice) per month, and math teachings and learnings were what you would expect from an average school--average! My child was injured at this school numerous times (once requiring a ER visit) but there was no attempt at all to notify us (parents). Although I've heard some teachers are great, the ones my child had were below average. Meadowlark was a very stressful, disappointing experience.

This is a great school! Very energetic, caring teachers who seem to love coming to work each day! Beautiful building with great technology! My child filmed and edited a digital movie in third grade - excellent teachers!
