Meadowcreek is an absolute joke. My son has been sent home for lack of immunizations, which he had. I took him on a Friday and made sure and got a new copy of his shot records. I had him turn them in the following Monday. The nurse called me and I explained to her that his teacher had to have the record. We have nothing she said, so I went to the school and asked to speak with the teacher and imagine that she doesn't have time to speak with me my son isn't a priority, so I am told I have to take him home. Now I'm mad so we go back to the health department to get another copy. So on our way the school calls and says oh, we found his shot record. He can come back. They counted him absent after being there til 12:45 then say it may not be excused because of shots...beware some teachers don't care about your kid. What ever happened to no kid left behind.

My daughter attended Meadowcreek for pre-k and kindergarten and my husband and I have decided for her not to return next year. Though she did learn, I didn't feel as though she was being challenged enough. Several times she complained to us about disruptive and mean children in her classroom. There isn't nearly enough parent involvement and they are very limited in art programs. On two different occasions, I personally turned in money to staff in the front office for fund raisers my daughter participated in only for them to turn around and send letters home saying she owed money. With exception of a few teachers and administrators the staff is unfriendly and rude. Definitely wouldn't recommend this school to anyone!

I have read many comments about Meadowcreek Elementary. While there is truth in some of these things, I believe our staff is solid. In fact, I have never before worked in such a caring environment. However, just as I have never seen such a group of supporting teachers, I have also never seen so many disrespectful students (a minority) who hurt the learning chances of their peers (the majority) and parents who do not respond to teachers when they do call. The few ruin it for the rest. Unfortunately, our society now says it is no longer the parents' job to teach their children discipline, manners, and respect. Every year, I have to teach my students to say "please" and "thank you". This is unacceptable. I learned these things from my parents. My parents never waited until I was in school and certainly never expected the teacher to teach me these things. I encourage all parents to work with their child's teacher. People at our school genuinely want the best for your son or daughter. They are also very busy just as you are. Be patient, but make sure you are doing your part as well. Best wishes!

A few years ago, this school got a new principle and some new teachers and things started changing for the better. Some time through the middle of the 2010-2011 school year it seemed like they all just gave up. They don't interact with the parent unless it's them telling you how bad your child was that day. When you call about the concerns your having, your lucky to get a call back. Usually in a week or two, whatever is best for them. Academically, it's not that great either. Several of the teachers can't seem to stay on task and the only thing they're worried about is the kids passing the standerized test. Math & reading (which is very important) is taught 90% of the time. All other subjects are taught 2-3 times in a 6-week period. For 6 years I have given this school my support, always thinking things will get better, but sadly it's a lost cause!

The first year my child was in School the teacher reguarly sent home on a daily basis the progress of how my child was doing both in conduct and academics. Now we rarely receive any notification from the teacher until the last minute or until things have escalated. This school to me has been on a serious decline in the last two school years.

We've been with this school for 13 years and have recently (last 3years) noticed that things have gone from bad to worse. There seems to be less communication between the school and parents. In the past this was a WONDERFUL school and the student, parents and teachers were proud to be part of this school. But it seems that the district in general has grown too fast and has lost control of things. student and parent are not as respectful or willing to follow school policies. More parents need to be involved and teach their children to respect others and work to make their school one of the best in the district AGAIN . The district needs to buckle down and be aware of what is going on in each school. Zero tolerence should be that and not be ignored by the teachers,students, principles, staff members or parents. GET INVOLVED NOW!

Last year my daughter went to a private school in Fort Worth for the 2nd grade. I was not happy at all with the public school. We wanted to put her back into public school, for a total of 5 months I did research on the schools in the area. After all the research we found Meadowcreek to be the #1 on paper, comp etc. We decided to move to Bedford so she could go to school there. We have been so happy with the decision. Meadowcreek has been wonderful for our family and our daughter. Now is #1 in person. She is in the 3rd grade and her teacher is most excellent! Thank you to the staff and to Mrs. Casstevens. :0)

Well, as a former student, Pre-k - 6, I've spent 8 years in that school, and they had to one of my best school years. Most of the teachers there were kind and supportive. I agree there isn't enough parent involment and there are a few disiplanary student, but its the parents responsibility to raise there kids right. But overall Meadowcreek Elementary tries, and I support them.

My child attended Kindergarten at Meadowcreek. Her teacher was very exceptional, very caring, and involved with her students. She went more than the extra mile.

My daughter thankfully only attended Meadowcreek for kindergarten. The only plus side was her teacher, who actually cared about her students along with the other kindergarten teachers. The nurses were nice. A lot of students are rude and undisciplined. If you can afford, send your child to a private school, regardless of religious affiliation.

Our daughter attended grades K-3 at this school. In that time we have been horrified by the decline in the educational and social enviroment at Meadowcreek. The lack of parental involvement and dicipline is frightening. The one bright spot was our daughter's teacher Mrs. Bollinger. She had the ability to inspire 'her' kids and 'her' parents. It's a shame that she seems to be fighting the fight all by herself. Best of luck to her. Because we could no longer tolerate the social enviroment of this school, thankfully, we have moved. Parents, if you care at all about your child's education or saftey, DO NOT attend this school (or move in this area if at all possible.)

Limited in music. No art or sports programs. Inconsistent in discipline consequences. Teaching staff does not reflect diversity. Students are extremely diverse.

Great teachers, friendly staff, many problems with troubled children and non active parents. There is little support from parents, and a few who try to make up for that. Over all I still have enjoyed the three years my son has attended.

I feel this is a very culturally diverse and goal oriented school. Since my children have attended this school, I have seen their grades improve, their confidence soar, and their love of school increase. the facult and parents are very encouraging. We coulddnt be more pleased with this school.

Meadowcreek has wonderful teachers willing to go the extra mile. Parent support can be spotty. Discipline is enforced though many students try to buck this part of the system. The school has set very high standards for the student population and need parental support for overall improvement.

Most of the teachers don't get enough support from the parents. And with the exception of a few teachers, most don't teach the kids as if they are going to college, or don't help inspire them to be focused on continuing their education. The social environment is horrible. We pulled our child out of this school and enrolled him elsewhere.

Our son has gone to Meadowcreek for 4 years and, with the exception of one exemplary teacher, who he had the good fortune of having for 2 years, we are not very pleased with the school. Many of the teachers seem indifferent, the parents are not that involved, and the end result can be seen in the rude and selfish behavior of many of the children there. The academic programs do seem more than adequate, but the social environment is not acceptable.

This is in relpy to the October review. Whoever wrote this is obviously oblivious to the actual ratings of the school. Meadowcreek is acutally an academically acceptable campus and the last three years has only been a recognized campus. Get your facts straight. Regarding administration, you sound a bit bitter and apprarently there is a lack of communication between you and your campus leader. It has been my experience as a parent and as a teacher that the school has been very cooperative and they are doing their best to ensure that the children receive a quality education. Why don't you do some more research before you make such broad, inaccuarte statements. Unless you're talking about a different Meadowcreek in Crowley , ask more questions and become involved so that you can help improve the quality of your child's education.

My child has attended Meadowcreek for five years. Overall, I am displeased with the school. The school is rated exemplary, but is not genuine. In order to maintain its exemplary status, at first signt of academic concens, the leaderships' first suggestion is to retain your child, instead of 'taking the risk' to developing his/her skills. It looks better on the books if the parent opts to retain than if the child does not pass and therefore hurts the schools exemplary status rating and thereby reduce its funding. Therefore, conculding that the school is very political and number-driven and has lost its personal touch-to care about the child/families. In addition, their disciplinary methods can be harshly abrupt,biased and unfair to the children. The new Asst. Principal, does not partner with the child and parent to arrive at the best resolution. Parents be on guard. Ensure/demand that your child is fairly treated.

My son is a second grader at Meadowcreek Elementary. His teacher, Mrs. Bolinger, is the greatest. She's inspiring to my son and to the school. The teachers at Meadowcreek really care about the kids. Teachers spread school spirit every Friday. Fridays are known as spirit day. I believe that the spirit day tradition has brought the teachers, parents, and students closer together. I'm proud my son goes to Meadowcreek, and even more so I'm grateful he has such a wonderful teacher. Thanks Mrs. Bolinger for a being a great teacher and a wonderful person.

Both of my daughters attend Meadow Creek. As a teacher myself (in another district) I am so pleased with the program at this school that I have them attend this school rather than attend the school where I teach. The teachers seem genuinely happy, which is a direct reflection of the environment provided by the principal and vice principal. The teaching staff is young, but that is a blessing, because they are energetic and full of new ideas. Thanks for all you do Ms. Painter(4th) and Ms. Hackworth(2).
