    My daughter attends this school and she loves it. She hasn't had any trouble with being bullied. She's an honor roll student and participates in sports. I've attended the open houses they've had and met her teachers and they all seem like good people. The teachers responds to my emails and any concerns I have. My older 3 children graduated from this school as well. I liked the former principal and the new principal is doing an awesome job with the school.

    I think that this school is very wonderful! My 12 year-old daughter is so excited to go to Meadow Woods Middle School everyday! She has no problems at all at school. Everyday she comes home with w smile on her face and i think to my self that there is no problem going on.

    I am a parent of a six grader. The teachers seem good. My son has had some theft problems unfortunately. He has also undergone a bully problem as well. I am saddened by the fact that we have had to teach my son to defend himself because of this matter. The problem was resolved because I as a parent did not let it rest until the problem was resolved the the bully was repremanded.

    Not a safe environment for children. School brags about No bullying tolerance but I speak from experience that there is very little done about this problem.

    The principals and teachers and staff are very professional. The programs are excellent. The music sports and other extracurriculum are excellent. On the parents involvement this is my first year and I am already involved and trying to get other parents to also get involve. I had my grandaughter in private school because I had a different image of public school. I am really amazed at all the activities the work etc. for all the children. I will rate Meadow Woods Middle as an excellent school.

    Im a proud parent of a straight a student attending meadow woods middle school for her last year. Its a interesting experience because its not the best school and not the worst and it does have a small problem in bulling but if your kid is good academicaly it will be great anywhere like mine the teachers are very good but they dont waist their time in telling studets to be quite. Is not good but I think their moto is who ever wants to learn will who ever doesnt we will not push you to learn.

    Needs better comunication and leadership between Teachers and Students. Motivate extracurricular activities for the ones that aren't into sport activities.

    I am very concerned about the bullying at school.All that is being pushed to the side and something really needs to be done about that.Teachers are not protecting all children.They just split everybody up and send them to clas instead of reprimanding them.It seems like the bullies have the upper hand and they know it as well.They don't care if the get reprimanded.Something needs to be done emididialty.Good children are being transferred from a good school because of these bullies.

    I attend meadow woods middle and I absouletly love it. Dr.Rivers is and awesome principal they have awesome techers staff!

    Being new to Central Florida and this being my first six-grader I am still gathering my opinion of the school. I think I heard 30+ countries are represented at this school I appreciate this. Teachers seem fair and have always addressed our needs when we have attended teacher conferences or asked for information. Band seems to be having leadership issues while the orchestra is exceeding parent s expectations. My son went in loving band but after the director left midway through the year the replacement does not seem to be doing well. My son has had some theft problems which somewhat can be blamed on his na ve social understanding of such a large environment. He has seen a number of fights. Security seems to be on top of these as soon as they occur. Only administration complaint would be that I never received much information regarding extra-curricular school activities or events.
