    Meadow view is the best travel buddyschool my prep class has communicated with Sharon Smith and her wonderful students and parents. for anumber of years We have three tracvel buddy bears Matilida a koala from Downunder in Australia at Holland Park State School and baby Bandit and beautiful Melody from Wonderful Meadowview. The bears are presently with us and we will mail them back to the usa for Christmas. We share school diaries and stories from both our classes and the students email each other . Meadow View has shown great support for disasters we have experienced in Australlia and always touch our hearts with their care and kind messagesI is so wonderful to share stories with such a dedicated school that aims for the very best for theri students even fdrom ayoung age How wonderful tit is to read stories fro the students. In Australia we received beautiful messages about our very special ANZAC day April 25 wriiten by the students and we hope to contiune our friendship and know that distance brings us closer together in love and friendship Meadow view is an outstanding school that reachers out to us in a very specila way. May the students teachers and staff be safe

    I have volunteered at this school almost weekly over the past 3 years and think the school is doing a great job. I have seen them handle difficult situations with the utmost professionalism. Schools are under tremendous stress these days because of educational standards and ratio of students to staff. If you spent a few days in the classroom you would observe the "standards" assessments curriculum and special activities that are required. Many of them have 27 students in a class -- of varying educational levels -- that they are expected to teach. I have found the teachers and administrators to be caring and committed to the students. I encourage every parent to spend time in the school if possible. It will give you a different perspective. Quite frankly I am not sure how they do it day in and day out while keeping such a positive attitude!

    Facebook war?? I like the school and my children excel there. I am NOT hostile..just defending the teachers and school that I approve of.

    I agree with the comment from below and Dec 30th post! This school needs to be revamped immediately! I was called sugah also from the front office. They are unprofessional and the teachers are robotic and well trained. It's not the teachers' fault leadership comes from the top! The PTO is like a secret organization. The one who posted on Jan 2nd is a clear example of the type of hostility that you will endure. The parent made the observation and Jan 2nd turned this into facebook war! It's clear that this school has no warmth and do welcome you into their community!

    had to delete my last post. I was to angry. I have decided the people who work in education should get paid based on the number of people they actually help. They should also get a huge pay cut if they give someone really bad information that isn't even close and hurts the children. Also the next person to call me "Baby honey darlin'" is going to get it. *Spare me the scarastic comments...I know they are coming" haha

    My child has attended two years and both were good years. Staff I encountered cared about the students overall and my child has learned a lot this past year and enjoyed school.

    Meadowview has become an A plus school. I beleive this year will be a fantastic year!! The staff went through a week of training to be A plus. It brings a whole new meaning to learning.

    I have had a terrible time trying to get face time with the principal to discuss my child's experience in Kindergarten. The staff has obvious problems as they do not use discretion when complaining to one another in front of parents and students. Several teachers have expressed a lack of support and leadership is lacking to say the least. The leadership needs to read the book "The Secret" about servant leadership and put some new practices to work... immediately. I am truly disappointed!!!

    I AGREE!!! WORST SCHOOL EVER!!!!! teachers only care about covering their A_ _! NOT your children.

  • (2 years ago)

    WARNING! worst school ever....no stars!!! but would not let me submit with out at least one... nothing but problems with everything at this school teachers principle students unruly. probably moving so our kids can go to different school. don't make your children go there! WARNING !!!! any good reviews are probably from the staff trying to cover up their embarrassing school.. sad for my children that they ever had to go.....

    This school has gone down hill since its opening. A new principal word be a huge improvement. We have lost good teachers and I fear will continue to lose more. Something needs to be done.

    Meadow View Elementary is an outsatnding school due to its caring teachers and professionalism. They strive to help all children learn and challenge them to their full potential. They have mounted LCD projectors in their classrooms to utilze wide screen interactive computer technology. They also have 2 computer labs one in the library and one other classroom lab. I am inpressed with the building in itself. Its brand new and clean! They have an inclosed courtyard for safe outside play. This is a wonderful school with a caring staff.

    Wonderful school my son is in 3rd grade this year. His teacher last year was outstanding! He is now at a 4.8 grade level and doing great. The staff is always welcoming and eager to help.

    This school is in its first year ('08-'09) and is doing pretty well. They have garnered a lot of experience by shifting teachers/administrators from other local schools. There is still a lot of gaps though (PTA consistency of School-to-parent communications etc.) that needs to be improved on. This takes every school some time to work out and will for Meadowview as well. Excellent building and facilities though! Would really give it 3.5 stars if I could.

    No communication can't get a meeting with the staff not prepared for the first day of school.... Worst school my child has gone to. The only thing good about the place is the nice new building.
