All schools on GreatSchools begin with BASIC completeness, which includes important information like contact details and test scores. It’s up to the school community to take the next steps. As a parent or community member, you can share what you know with other families by writing a review or answering a few questions about what the school offers. As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

The completeness meter moves to INTERMEDIATE, then ADVANCED, and finally HONOR ROLL as you complete the following: 10 or more reviews, at least 1 photo, and 9 program questions parents find helpful.

I have three children attending Meadowbrook now and another who will attend in a few years. We moved to the neighborhood specifically for the school and have not been let down. Mr Marcaccio is an excellent leader who really "gets" what the parents and students need. He is responsive, understanding, and completely open to new and innovative ways of thinking. Melissa, as another poster mentioned, is phenomenal and truly the gem of MFE. From Speech terapy, to Kindergartenm 1st grade and 2nd, the staff is incredible. We couldn't be happier with the staff and what they do with the resources at their fingertips. Of course, there are areas for improvement, none of which I see particularly as the schools fault but more of the resources they lack themselves. One- Technology can be improved with more one:one instruction on computer based modules. Two- Multiple full Day K classrooms as opposed to primarily half day- Not a school specific policy but one we need to see across the board. But that's it. I'm proud to be a parent of children at Meadowbrook.

I've had multiple children in Meadowbrook, and have been mostly happy. Teachers are warm and caring. I've found it just challenging enough for a not-gifted child, and a little lacking for a gifted child - overall, solid but not amazing. Melissa in the front office is wonderful. She knows every child that walks through that door. She's worth 3 stars by herself! The facility is decent and not overcrowded. One glaring problem is the lack of full-day Kindergarten. This is district-wide and not a strictly Meadowbrook issue, but it is the biggest reason it's not 5 stars The district is studying the "feasibility" of full-day K, but it wouldn't actually be implemented until 2015 at earliest. They are really unacceptably behind the times on this, and parents have been clamoring for it for years. That it takes *so long* for them to implement something everyone agrees is best for the children is madness. Many less well-funded districts in RI have managed to get on the ball with full-day K, while wealthy EG sits on its thumbs. This unfortunately speaks to a level of inertia that has me a little concerned about Meadowbrook's quality. But day-to-day, my children are happy and learning okay.

MFS is a strong school because of the kids who attend and the expectations and support given by their families, and their great PTG. The teachers are solid from a tecnical standpoint but only a few go above and beyond. The principal has little influence. Luckily the kids and their families are strong enough to carry the day.

My children are in the preschool and i feel that they have done very well up to this point. They would not have thrived as well as they have without this program
