pros: there is no violence, no gang issues, the kids wear uniforms so there is no inappropriate clothing, and they do teach a very world-wide view, with all subjects being interconnected. There are also some very great teachers there. cons: the math program is a joke (I highly recommend investigating Everyday Math prior to sending ones children there). They are completely unresponsive to criticism and are more than willing for families to leave, since they know (as of now, at least) there are plenty of people waiting to take their spot (there is a long waitlist, there is also high turnover). They allow no parents in the classes outside of 3 one-hour "party" times a year-this, in the head of primary's own words, is "so parents don't gossip about other kids" which I think is a very dim view to take of parents at her school, and pretty indicative of her opinion about parents in general. They have a very high percentage of new teachers every year, since many teachers leave after their first year. In our 3 years there with 3 kids all 3 years, only 2 of the 9 teachers who taught them weren't new. And there are startlingly, noticeably few Hispanic or African-American students.

Teacher effectiveness: Disagree

There are a few outstanding teachers, but most of the staff stays a year or two and leaves. High turnover means the teachers are constantly "new" to the IB program, and not very effective.

Unfortunately cheating is rampant here, and tacitly encouraged by administration looking for good test scores.

This school is not just another school. This school is a community. A community of parents, educators, students, employees, and volunteers. This community strives every day to make this world a better place. Through dedication, team work, presistence and hard work. We Love it!

Even if I'm struggling the teachers find a new way to explain it and help me understand it.

Excellent staff and teachers. They keep parents involved in what is going on and in kids education in general. I think that is a positive and not a negative. parents are not forced to but they want to be a part of their kids life and this amazing school. Kids are taught from early on on how to be thinkers and problem solvers and not just focus on how to score well in tests. I love this school. we are fortunate to be a part of MERIDIAN community. Go Lions!!!

My children are thriving at Meridian. This is their fifth year in attendance and we could not be more thrilled.
