    Meadows is a great school. The teachers work as teams to teach their students. Mrs. Moore's first priority are the students education and what is best for them.

    The new principal has made a big difference at Meadows. She cares about the students and the community. There are many ways parents can be involved and informed. The teachers are experienced supportive and caring.

    This school is very nice outside ! If your child doesn't have any special needs it seem ok but when your child is in special needs it really is terrible.They don't have enough services and don't care much about how to help your child

    My son attended kindergarten at Meadows last year in 2005. Because of all the negative attention that California public schools have been getting I was initially skeptical but I decided to enroll my son anyway. By the end of the school year I was extremely impressed with how much my son had gained academically within that school year. My whole perception of this school and especially the teachers changed dramatically. I realize how much my son's teacher worked with her students to help them excel in their academic skills. I commend and have deep respect for all the teachers and staff of Meadows school for doing an excellent job in teaching and caring for our children.

    Only the second day of school and safety laws and guidelines are not being enforced or followed. I think the uniform idea had an awful lot to do with corporate sponsorship. Totally Unacceptable.

    Horrible school for acadamic achievement. Most Recent parent teacher conference I was told my 2nd grader was reading at 4th grade levles but the report card reflected ratings of twos for reading. 'Which means approaching grade level'. When pressed teachers have admitted that skill levels of children do not matter. The school rates all children low at the beginning of the year and gradually increases grades to years end. This is intentionally done to reflect improvement for state oversight functions. Example my 6th grader was testing in the top 99 percent of the nation in math but only received 2s until the last semester. Advanced children are dispersed among under achievers and used to help teachers bring up general classroom scores. After several years of neglect advanced kids are finally dumbed down to fit in. School uniforms are another issue. The staff is unwilling to speak about negative psychological impacts.

    It is a good school there are many resources for the students to get help at. There is also extracurricular activities for the children.

    Where to start. My son has been going to Franklin Mckinley School district for 2 1/2 years now. When he came into this school he was testing in the top 10% of the Nation on star tests. Now he is testing state averages of 40-50 percent. Teachers refuse to call parents when children are having scholastic problems like turning in homework and severely lower grades on report cards without parent getting a chance to address the issue. From a parent teacher conference Quote 'I cannot possibly call every parent who's child is having problems'. My daughter completed 1st grade last year. She received low markings on her report card in all subjects even when state standards and classmates were exceeded. The teacher actually admitted Quote 'Student scholastics do not matter. We mark low at the begining of the year and raise it each semester so the school meets state improvement reviews'.
