    This school is filled with bullies. Teachers and students are bullying every day and no one is doing anything about it. Waiting for my child to get out of class is a terrible experience. Most of the kids are physically abusive towards each other. Girls are hitting boys boys are hitting each other and adults just turn a blind eye. Profanity is their main choice of communication. The bus drivers are all always screaming at the kids while they hang out of the windows of the bus spitting on kids walking by or throwing items out of the bus. The security is friendly but thats it. There is NO safety. They lock the gates but thats the only measure they take to secure the school. The school counselor is not helpful in any way. She delays call backs meetings and NO results. Always just a waste of time trying to get something resolved. The classes are overcrowded and the assistant principal lies about other teachers assisting the overcrowded classes.

    I was a student there from 2001-2003 as a Pre-Kinder to 3rd grade and back then it was really great! Teachers were loving kids were nice I had best friends no bullying as far as where I was standing and it was a great community. Don't know about now since times change but it along with YMCA was so wonderful when I was there

    good school but i agree that there are a bullying problem at the school .

    There is a bullying problem at the school but this is due to no cooperation from the parents. There is also no implementation of anti-bullying program. On the other hand my children have been lucky to have excellent teachers. The principal spends time getting to know the kids and is a great leader.

    Horrific bullying problem which is ignored by the staff. Miami-Dade Public Schools anti-bullying program has not been implemented at this school. Some teachers are exceptional. New AP lacks common courtesy towards students staff and parents. For parents with boys I recommend reading 'Raising Cain - Protecting the Emotional Life of a Boy.'

    I am very happy with the school! My oldest son went to this school and now my younger son is attending. Keep up the good work!

    I love the school and the teachers. They have the best interest in helping and making sure the kids learn and understan there grade and age. The only thing i dont like is that there is no extra activities involving all the kids of there own age. Like dances especially for the 5th graders.

    The school is excellent. They have top notch technology; there is a Smart Board in every class.

    My child is in Pre-K we as parents are very exticed and so is she. We feel very comfortable with her teacher she is very extrict. She cares about her class and education and I have noticed my child improvement. As a concern mom I volunteer to work at school. I'm working in the cafeteria and I'm very disappointed on the behave of the children. For sure this is not the school that I want for my child.

    Meadowlane is an outstanding school. The pre-kinder program is excellent and the 3 grade with Miss vento-Prieto is the best I have ever seen. I have 3 kids ages 5 9 12 all attend or attended Meadowlane.

    The school is very well kept however the teachers are overloaded with work and are not able to actually see which kids need help (with present assignment) and which kids don't. In other words they are so cought up in the routine that they are not focusing on teaching instead preaching from a book or a list of things to do with time limits not dedication to the students learning. My child is in second grade and i am not satisfied at all with the school nor the teacher.

    This is a terrific school. It is catagorized as an 'A' school and it's gotten there due to the great staff of teachers. They have a terrific curriculum for the children. They strive and work hard for the kids to leave each grade at or above grade level. You'll enjoy it and much as I have.

    I think its a very good school. Lots of security and the way they teach is a very high standard but it has 2 bad things the parking to pick up the kids are not too good and my child is in pre k and they do not provide them with a sleeping mat nor they accept us to bring one they sleep on top of a carpet which they walk on and they only ley us bring them a towel to put under them when they sleep. And they only nap for 25 min these are pre k kids not grown ups!
