Meadowbrook Middle School is simply the best school in the area. Mr. Durbin, Principal has taken school to a higher academic standard. Highly recommend.

Meadowbrook has come a long way from where it was in the past. About 95% of the staff is here for the kids. There is always that 5% in every school that thinks of this profession as just a job to make money. To work at Meadowbrook is a challenge, but if it wasn't then I don't think I would feel the gratification in the strides that our students make in the education, attitudes, and their overall development. To ensure the success of these adolescents three things must be in place to make this possible. 1.) The teacher must be wiling to bend over backwards, work hard and set high standards for their students. 2.) Students must be accountable for their actions whether it is discipline or academic and must work hard to be successful. 3.) Parents have to be involved in their child s education and not expect the teacher to be able to be the only factor in their child s education. With all three things in place I believe a child s success will not be left to chance and our society as a whole will benefit.
Please stop removing my posts. Donot put your kids in this school!!!Especially if you are concerned with their safety and want them to stay out of gangs. This school is horrible. Principal does not take complaints seriously. Call the central office and you are immediately on the blacklist. Your child will suffer even more. The atmosphere is oppressive. Some teachers are allowed to play rap music with offensive lyrics in their rooms while the children are trying to learn. The performances are a joke. Students and employees are loud and rowdy. I had the misfortune to attend one and the vice principal was only standing by the door talking to a student. Think how much overtime that cost taxpayers for someone to stand around and talk. They have failed their state accountability ratings for the 6th year in a row. Is this the only alternative low income single parents in this area have? Even more important why is this school still open? I would rather You become a threat to them when you complain. Don't count on central office for support neither. They are in meetings all day and cannot be bothered to address the taxpayers from where their salaries originate.
My son has attended his first year @ Meadowbrook Middle this school year and I am proud so say that he enjoyed school there, he was safe, and the staff holds a unfiied front of strength and structure, which they try in instill in their young students as well. They ladies in the office were always smiling and Mrs. Washington has never been to busy to discuss my son's educational future. Thank you Kimi
Congrats on the wonderful work for passing the TAKS and keeping the school open great staff and wonderful students.
This school has excellent staff. The principle has really gone over and beyond the call of duty to ensure the best for her students. The over all culture is very diverse with little of all, like the really world. My child has gone to this school now for 3 years and has improved since 5th grade. The school needs more parent involvement to make Meadowbrook a success. Give our future all the tool to succeed in the world today/ Kari Haney
It seems really great. I'm in 7th grade, I was worried before, but now I see that the school is really protective of it's students. The uniforms are nice, actully, they aren't that strickt; Navy blue bottems or dark jeans, white or Navy colard shirts. Any jacket, any belt, any shoes. The work suprisingly isn't that hard, I was failing at my other school! This is my third day at MMS, and I already feel welcomed. xoxo
I am a teacher at MMS. The school is making changes. The new principal is doing her best. Many of the teachers give their best. Of course there are some bad teachers...But the good ones out number them...The atmosphere is difficult. If you are new student it will be difficult...the student who want to learn are out number by the students who want to cause trouble...
I believe that this school could use a lot of work academically.The test scores are always low.
Although I find the teachers to be very competent, I find that Meadowbrook Middle School, Fort Worth, Texas, has serious security problems. Last year my child was in 7th and was threatened with a knife. This year he has had to fight with a kid and is constantly harassed. They need a new security team and better funding to provide that security.
My daughter just finished her first year at Meadowbrook and we have had a great 6th grade experiance. I have been involved with her activities and her teachers and everyone has been great. Her orchestra participation has just really made her self esteem blossom. Great teachers and staff. Thanks to all
Meadowbrook middle school is a wonderful place to go to. If you want a safe school, come to meadowbrook middle school!
My daughter a six grader there. She told the that the second week she went there their was a 8th grader picking on her. So when I went to the school there. I found out that she liked to pick on kids smaller than her. Now my daughter has all kinds of girls messing with her. I just think they need more security around. But that is just my opinion.
My main concern is the constant fighting that goes on at Handley. I removed my 8th and 7th grader due to fights that happen there. Teachers are average to very good. Leadership could be improved. Security guards don't do their jobs to protect the students.
I went to Meadowbrook myself,and my son went there from 6-8 and he just finished his last year there at the beginning of the school, from a personal stand point I rate the school as excellent with a great staff and I will always be proud to have taken part in going to this school the mighty proud buffaloes.
