Meridian Elementary School Reviews
My experience at Meridian has been the opposite of the previous commenter's. I have two kids in the school, one a rising 4th grader and one a rising 1st grader. Both of them have been challenged (which is hard for my son, who's gifted), and the teachers take the time to get to know every child. I believe that both of my children will be more than adequately prepared to move on in their education, and I think that Meridian's teachers and dedication to making sure that its students are both nurtured and challenged is a large part of that.
We had a dismal experience at Meridian. Children were put in front of a screen to watch Disney movies so often that I called the principal to ask whether she knew what was happening. She said she did not. Nothing was done. There were an inordinate number of "special" days during which our kids did nothing academic other than have parties and watch movies. Our son complained of having almost nothing to do all day, and he came home with piles of drawings and complaints of boredom. My 4th grade child was told that it was okay if she couldn't memorize her math facts, that some kids can't do this. We've enrolled at a charter school for next year, where teachers are held accountable for their efforts.
