I am a grandparent of one of the students at this school,I live out of state,but am seriously thinking of coming down and going with my daughter to the District of this school and getting answers,I don't understand how a principal can make a judgement call and suspend a student,because another child got in trouble and a week later,because my grandchild was by him,without getting all the facts!and being very rude to him in front of his mother that this needs to be looked into,a school needs to build a childs self-esteem up along with the parents.not crush it.I do understand children do get into trouble,my grandson is no exception.but I also know you need to get all the facts before you make that judgement call also.from a very concerned grandparent.

my husband and i go eat lunch with our two children periodically, and sometimes we see the teachers being a little sarcastic and sometimes harsh toward the students. but overall a great school.

Meador is awesome. The nurse is great. The secretary could smile every now and then but tall the teachers there are very nice, so far. I am glad all 3 of my little ones are there!
