Meadowbrook was a place to grow- the language classes, the dedicated guidance counselors (who knew your name, and went out of their way to find you and make college/trade school possible), teachers who didn't give up. In a lot of schools, good kids get pushed to the back burner so that attention and time can be given to kids who need a bit more patience or explanation-but more teachers/assistants would be assigned to a class so that everyone was given the same amount of educational time. Meadowbrook is also diverse- there are people from everywhere, Japanese language classes. French language classes- amongst many African exchange students, and Spanish speakers. It is a delightful school, with so much to share. There are also clubs for everyone (recycling clubs, anime clubs, sports clubs, book clubs.) The library is very up to date with new books, and every kind of research tool-the staff is also excellent.

At Meadowbrook High School, you can find people with diverse backgrounds and cultures. I love that Meadowbrook celebrates the diversity of students and encourages students to be proud of who they are. The teachers and administration are extremely dedicated to helping students achieve. However, many students do not have the drive and desire to succeed in high school. I wish that students would care more about their future and work to make an impact in the school. Nevertheless, there are many students who wish to see their peers succeed and wish to create change through systems of helping fellow students, the community, and internationally. There are tutoring and mentoring programs in place aimed at helping students who are struggling. The clubs at Meadowbrook sponsor many donation events to help the community.
Meadowbrook High School has a reputation for being one of the worst school in Chesterfield County, and I can see why it gets that reputation. Fights happen every so often and some students aren’t serious about their education and how they are portrayed, which is their choice. However, there is an abundance of students that attend Meadowbrook that care about their education that do not engage in fights or instagram them, and I was one of those students. Being an “outsider” or “nerd” (as some would call it) put me with people that had the same mindset as me and were just as quirky as I was. That is why I had such an excellent time at Meadowbrook.
