    My son is new to this school he started the end of the school year this May 2013. He loves this school. The teachers are awesome. The lunches are awesome. Quotes from my son. I thought that he may have a hard time adjusting at first but it really feels like you're family here. Thank you meadowview.

    The teachers at this school are really friendly and they really care about their students. My son use to get nothing but bad grades and now he's held on to good grades almost all year so far.

    We love Meadow View. Our teachers and administration are by far the reason that our school is so great. Dr. McKinney and Ali Finkle create an awesome atmosphere for our kids!

    Meadow View is a great school. The teachers are all wonderful all involved in the best intrests of their students. There is always someting fun going on...The only downfall is the after school pick up situation.It takes far too long in the afternoon. My daughter is in pm kdg. and if you're not there at least 45-50 minutes before school gets out you have to wait in a huge car line. But other than that I love the school as dios my daughter!

    We have been in Meadowview for 5 years now and in the past two years have seen a lot of disturbing decisions made by the principle of this school. I feel a majority of her goals are geared toward only a small portion of the school I am all for teaching English to the Spanish speaking students of the School but I also feel that the school should offer the reverse for the English Speaking Students. Parents are not involved with decisions that the principle makes and I also feel that the staff is not involved in these decisions either. I also feel that the after school programs are not the priority of the school.

    The teaching staff is excellent and the parent involvement is OK. Biggest problem is the overcrowding of the school.

    My daughter has been going to Meadow View for 3 years and my son 2 years. They love the school! The teachers are involved and excited about teaching. The Principal is always to be seen before school during school and after. If you ever have a concern he really listens and he does take action if needed. I am so greatful that I know my children are getting a great education and teachers and staff who are so involved and caring when it comes to the kids.

    My children attended this school for 2 years (they've been to 3 elementary schools) and this one is my favorite. The principal seems to be very involved with getting to know the children and parents- he's not some 'mystery man' that hides in his office as some scary authority figure. He seems to inspire the other teachers to be energetic and enthusiastic unlike other schools where the teachers often seem angry to be there. There is an energy and caring about this school that we really enjoyed and miss.
