    Featured Review: Parent says During the pandemic we visited Mead Hall, and decided to enroll our children for a year and transport back-and-forth about 30 minutes each way. It was worthOur kids began to excel far faster than they did in their former private school, academically and socially. The leadership team is amazing, the teachers are outstanding, the students are fun and vibrant and uniqueness is widely accepted and loved!The extracurriculars are incredible for a small private school. The location is perfect, you can basically park at school and spend the whole day downtown.The aftercare is awesome and added bonus is that they do their homework before they play! Also, Carpool is a breeze!Safety measures are constantly improving, and the school is quick to respond to anything abnormal.We absolutely love Mead Hall. So much that we moved to Aiken. It is the best decision we have ever made for our family. We look forward see our kids graduate from the Aiken prep campus!Gabby Boardman Benton.
