    My daughter went here last year. It was her first year and they were very welcoming. She had a great teacher and really thrived! They are doing so many things right at this school recess before lunch health bar in the cafeteria & technology or music block. I wish we were still living in Sheridan so she could stay at Meadowlark. FYI they did get a new principle in 2013. So far he has kept up all of the great programs that were going so hopefully that continues.

    Yet another great Sheridan school. I had the best time of my life at this school. It is the highest ranking elementary school in Wyoming and offers plenty of incentives toward testing. Principal has won many awards and the teachers are AMAZING!! Wow. I miss this place! Wonder why I type so well? Thank Meadowlark.
