    Meadowbrook failed in most every aspect of my child's education. I have had positive experiences with Waldorfs so this if for Meadowbrook only. Overall it is much too feminine an experience for boys especially as they enter puberty. The staff all speak in hushed falsely sweet voices. Mean children's actions are not properly redirected. Children are expected to 'work it out'. After a time the kids learn to take advantage of their teachers with an Eddie Haskel type behavior. Ultimately because of this and the small class size a child who is not among the 'in' group becomes totally alienated during their last years there. Finally although Waldorf teachers are supposed to stay with the class throughout their entire time at the school it seems that many teachers leave as soon as their kids graduate from the school. So make sure to check if the teacher has any children at the school before you enroll your child. Finally the schools leadership lacks dramatically in ability and sincerity. A person cannot hide their true self simply by speaking in breathy sugar coated words. My primary suggestion is to hire more male staff/influencers.

    My time spentat this school was amazing. It encompasses the whole person and inspires a love of learning. The learning style is very unique it creates a love for the arts whether its carving a spoon making a doll or creating own text books. I can't exlain half of what this school was for me. It is so welcoming. The teachers are more than just teachers. It gave me a love of nature arts and learning. While inspiring me to be so much more than a strait A student. I transitioned well into high school and now look back on my wonderful memorys of meadowbrook.

    A great school devoted to excellent education that awakens natural curiosity and lifelong love of learning. I was a part of the pioneer class in RI and feel quite fortunate to have had parents that valued education so much. I would highly rec. to most families searching for a meaningful school and community that will serve its students long after graduation.
