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 bleed blue at Meadowdale. I’ve always felt deeply at home at this highschool. The staff care, the building is new and big and kids stay out of trouble. And so much to do! After our ASB team and our theatre and music programs and our stellar sports teams, you won’t run out of opportunities.
The best things about Meadowdale High School is the teachers and the beautiful campus. The teachers are so supportive with each student and you really feel like you are heard when you are in class. They are all so smart and amazing at teaching, for example Mrs. Thomas (chemistry), Mrs. Seals (Chef), Mr. McGuire (history) and Mrs. Frindell (english). The teachers truly make up Meadowdale and make the high school experience great. Another aspect that makes Meadowdale great is the campus, it is always clean due to our great custodians. It is very easy to get around and not get lost and if you do get lost you can ask anyone for directions. The campus is beautiful and very easy to get around from class to class. Those are the two best things that make Meadowdale the best high school in Washington.
