I have a son with Autism who is in his 3rd year at Meadowview. The Special Ed team at this school is top-notch! All the teachers, not just special ed, are energetic and responsive. Not only do they make sure my son has the resources he needs to learn, but they are also teaching us how to teach him at home. The one time I wished to meet with the principal, I was accommodated immediately with great result. This school is also very patriotic, a tone that is set at the top in the principal's office. Another reviewer said the school is socioeconomically biased, but that has not been my experience. The school is surrounded by multifamily housing. We rent and our household income is $42,000/yr. We have received EXCELLENT service and effort form this school. Highly recommend.

This school is terrific! My daughter has learned so much. It s a very positive environment and the teachers are very caring with great feedback. I love that recess is before the kids eat lunch so that the kids are not rushing though their lunch so they can go play. I think they should send home a bit more homework for a 1st grader but my daughter is learning to read and doing a great job thanks to this school!

Very socioeconomically/racially biased, teachers not responsive to parent involvement, or questioning teaching methods; poor communication with parents. Very cliquey, attention is based on parents career/income. Children have been at this school for a couple of years, and considering moving to different public school, or Catholic school.

I think Meadowview is the top elementary school in the Eau Claire area. The teachers truley love their students and help them adjust and excel in every aspect. The principal and guidence counselers are also great. My daughter only went there for 1 year but it was her favorite so far.

About the tests


In 2013-2014 Wisconsin used the Wisconsin Student Assessment System (WSAS), which includes the WKCE and WAA, to test students in grades 3 through 8 and 10 in math and reading, and in grades 4, 8 and 10 in language arts, science and social studies. The WSAS is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Wisconsin. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level. In private schools, only voucher program participants are tested.
GreatSchools' ratings currently reflect 2012-13 testing data.



Beginning in the 2012-2013 school year, the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction implemented new definitions of what it means to be proficient on the WSAS test. As a result of these changes, proficiency scores for Wisconsin schools are lower than they were in previous years.
