    The Meadows School is exceptional. I remember the first time I toured the campus I was overwhelmed with the thought, “This is how education should be. Why can’t all schools be like this?” The faculty holds high expectations while providing rigorous and engaging lessons that hone critical thinking skills and fosters productive citizenship. The school offers students an array of academic and extracurricular opportunities and the school community is the best I have witnessed. The school prides itself on teaching students service to one’s community, character, and scholarship. And, the Meadows values students from all economic backgrounds with 20% of students receiving financial aid scholarships. My family and I are thankful for The Meadows School. Tour the school for yourself.

    Great school and rated one of the most rigorous curriculums in the country. Students can bond fairly well with their teachers and are always welcome to reach out. The whole community at Meadows is very close, from the Lower School children to the Upper School teens getting ready to graduate, everyone is friendly and welcoming. The teachers and staff are all very kind and accepting and push for the growth and excellence of students. Students are given a wide range of options to complete their PE credits either through theoretical courses which include physical training, or through a multitude of sports including football, golf, tennis, basketball, soccer, cheerleading, and volleyball, with plenty of other options as well.
    The new Athletic Director has made a huge impact on athletics at the School. With mandatory strength training and consultations on nutrition and sports psychology for all athletes, the Meadows School is building a power house program in their Class 3A Division. Tennis and golf are always top notch programs and their wrestling, bowling, volleyball, softball and baseball teams are always at going to the regional and state tournaments. And yes, their Academics is definitely top notch with 25% of the Senior Class 2020 being recognized as either National Merit SemiFinalists or Commended. That's an amazing number of students.
