The teachers at Meadowdale High School are always professional but also very entertaining which helps cultivate the perfect learning environment! Although some textbook work is always a necessity for class progression, the teachers here use a variety of teaching methods, whether is be stories, short lectures, models or power points.
In addition to the teachers, there are almost always tutoring sessions happening after class to assist with learning necessary skills to not only complete homework, but to really learn a fundamental concept of the class until you are so comfortable with the topic that you can teach other.
Although you might only see them once or twice a year, the academic counselors at Meadowdale are extraordinarily helpful and always super reliable. They are always ready and prepared to assist students with struggles they are facing currently, or to assist them when preparing for their future.

I am very humble to say my first high school-my first chapter of my life, Meadowdale High School- is a place full of lights, and yet paths are opened to all students, there is a person who actually go to Stanford University, and every teachers talk about it multiple times, I can know how proud they are. When it first began building in 1963. Most recently, they had also won as a champion in Cheerleader in Washington State! Sports made the atmosphere here is so unique. Your light won’t ever be dimmed, because everybody believe in each other and stand up for each other they I recently realized that why does Meadowdale High School stands as the most stand-out high school in Washington State. My assistant’s principal, Ms. Kimberly Dreiser, she is such an enthusiastic person that she tried to give some advices to me when I am not mature enough to understand. “Mavericks” are borned, they people that will lead Washington State and America later on!
The leadership and teachers care about the students and work hard to get each student what they need. There are community events (ice cream, movie night) that bring everyone together. The kids enjoy the school and enjoy going!
I love this school. My son loves this school. Never had any issues with their teachers or the principals (even though they had a few different ones).
