At Meadowbrook High Students are terrible they think they can do what ever they want and teachers act like they dont care about there job they treat us students like dirt im a 9th grader at MBK and it should be rated 1 out of 10 for a good school!!

Went here for a year and a half and hated every moment of it. One kid acts out and the entire class is punished. School doesn't trust the kids; there's a 45 minute "break" period in the morning where they aren't allowed to talk quietly, sleep, be on their phones/listen to music, etc. The kids are supposed to work on assignments during that time and if they don't have any work to do they're expected to just sit quietly with nothing to do for the 45 minute duration. Art teacher was extremely disrespectful towards students (example: drawing cartoons in my free time wasn't "realism" and was bad, if she was in a bad mood- which was a lot- the whole class had to pay for it, etc.). Teachers were generally just rude to the kids, couldn't ask them to do anything in a respectful manner. All in all, this school made me feel inferior as a human being. My thoughts and feelings were constantly invalidated and I would never recommended this school to anyone.


Develops character: Strongly disagree

Absolutely not. The students can act however they want. Administrators only care about test scores and not writing up minorities/special education students, per county instruction.

My son is a high functioning autistic student. He went to James River High School believing that he will get the best education there. They found a way to get rid of him because they don't know how to handle teenager with autism. He went back to Meadowbrook High School and it transformed him into a consistent distinguished honor student for two years in row with a standard diploma. James River HS never gave him a chance because they don't know how. MHS took care of him as a human being with disability but focused on his ability. Their special education department knows what they're doing. For my son, his future is like sky without limit. Meadowbrook HS made the impossible, possible!

Hate the teachers + the students... most annoying school to go to. Every mourning I wake up I dread the hour of preparation to get ready for Meadowbrook. This school sucks and deserves no stars, not one!!!!!!

I could not be more happy with my daughter's experience at Meadowbrook. She was an underachiever in middle school; however, her placement in Meadowbrook's Success Program has created a complete makeover in my daughter. She now has a 3.8 GPA and scored pass advanced on two of her SOLs. As a 9th grader, she had the opportunity to participate in a College Prep program which recently took students to visit Longwood University. I am so glad that we stayed at Meadowbrook. I love the diversity and the unique opportunities it provides it's students. Go Monarchs!

Wow these negative reviews are untrue and incorrect. MBK has award winning programs in academics, arts, and athletics. It is a shame that a school that is a majority African American and Hispanic has to deal with these negative stereotypes from others in the county. MBK's TV production program won the state championship this year. No school in the Richmond area has anywhere near the media program that Meadowbrook possess. The MBK Success program has ninth grade promotion rate up to 97%. The Success program does community service and also partners with Microsoft to rebuild computers for families. MBK Theater program dominates the region and competes on the state level every year. As one of two IB programs in the county academics is rigorous and relevant. MBK also has an award winning JROTC program. MBK has championship level sports in football, basketball, and soccer. SOL scores are no longer the lowest in Chesterfield county and others schools in the area are now not out preforming Meadowbrook. Before posting untrue statements about a school you should come and visit and see the great amount of work admin, teachers, students, and parents are putting in at MBK!

If I can put a -0 I would. These kids are unruly,If one or two kids act out in class the teachers take it out on the whole class. Even discouraging kids by telling them they are all going to fail. They are only concerned about there deadline not educating the kids. God forbid a child has a question because they don't understand they said "not my problem, its your parents responsibility to teach you, we have a deadline to met". One has even said that she doesn't get paid enough to teach these kids and sits down to answers her cell phone to take care of personal things during class. Another teacher said to keep papers on the desk just incase an administrator comes in so they appear to be doing work. Don't ever tell them your child is getting bullied the teacher will befriend the bully and start disrespecting your child too. Staff make fun of the clothes the kids are wearing and so on. I think they need to remove the kids who are unruly keep them out of school let them be the ones catching up on school work, keep the program of TEACHING going. So sad these grown people are teaching this generation, the kids don't care because the teachers don't care. My child is outta here ASAP!
