Meadows Arts and Technology Elementary School Reviews

MATES seems to really do the performing arts well. Teachers seem caring. Sense of community is also strong, but beware if you dare share a concern-even if warranted. As for the rest, well, it’s just average. As other reviewers mentioned there are deep ongoing issues within administration: lack of integrity and professionalism; poor decision making; inability to effectively and respectfully communicate with parents; and not putting students’ needs, health and safety above all else. It’s truly surprising to me that the school chose to “renovate” its administrative offices and lounge with large funds raised by parents (intended for students) rather than addressing more pressing issues that directly impact students. MATES is stuck and is in desperate need of honest, student-centered, positive leadership that parents can trust and feel confident in.

I find it disheartening to see a one star review for MATES on this site. As the 1 star review parent notes, MATES is a Charter School run independently from the District. As such, the Administration and Staff wear many hats and collaborate with many parties to maintain and efficient, compliant and productive school environment in concert with the governing Board of Directors. Decisions are driven by the Charter, LCAP (Local Control Accountability Plan) set by the State of CA, the multi-year Education Technology Plan and many other benchmarks.

The MATES mission statement is: Instituting a vision that welcomes innovation, honors the past, transforms the future, commands achievement, and empowers all children through the Arts and Technology. I'd encourage any prospective family to visit the campus, speak with a teacher, look to school performance and decide for yourself if MATES is for you. Our family experience has been outstanding and I'm confident yours would be too.
MATES has been the biggest gift as a parent. The teachers are top notch and WANT to be there as they do not make the same amount as other teachers. However, what they get back is professional development at their fingertips, an administration willing to try research-based practices, a freedom with cubiculum, and a parent body who volunteer like no other place I have seen. I feel very lucky to be a parent at MATES and even more lucky that my children are getting their education foundation at such an extraordinary school. Thank you for being so open, flexible, and welcoming to our family.
