    "Meadowfield is a wonderful school. The school teaches citizenship, introduces moral principles, and encourages high self-esteem and self-worth. Academically, the school has a top notch team of educators helping our children learn an aggressive and comprehensive series of math, science, language arts, social studies, and history courses, meeting and exceeding the state's requirements. Our children are among the highest grade scoring in the state. PTO needs improvement on involving ALL parents and not making us feel there is a "click" or favorited group among the population. For instance, not enough OPEN meetings, no genuine acceptance of proposed ideas, and of course, the hypocritical conduct during the meetings. (Our students are taught the Paideia concept, -everyone deserves to be heard -when one speaks, all should listen-) but during the meetings, PTO members talk over each other, conduct sideline conversations with whispers that exponentially become louder and those of us nonmembers who raise our hands are not acknowledged nearly half of the time. PTO does functions well with fundraisers, and various projects as IT sees fit. Meadowfield is the best school in Richland County."

    "Meadowfield is a great school. The teachers were always professional, interested, and attentive to both the children and parents. In middle and high school, my children and their Meadowfield peers have assimilated and performed as well as or better than their classmates from other elementary schools. As with any other school, there will always be room for improvement and challenges to overcome, but this school is undeservedly underrated and underutilized by families zoned for it. Meadowfield will teach your children as well as any other school, if not better - especially if you send them prepared and with high expectations for learning."

    "I couldn't agree more with the July 10, 2013 posting--I have also been an involved parent of two children who attend Meadowfield. We have found the teachers and other faculty to be extremely dedicated to their students and parents--my children's teachers have often gone above and beyond (with very limited resources!) to create a respectful, engaging, and exciting hands-on learning environment. We've also found that there is not a one-size fits all approach at this school--they meet the students where they are and give them the tools to learn and grow. We are also grateful for our neighborhood public school and greatly appreciate the diversity!"

    "As an involved parent of Meadowfield students for the past 4 years, I would have to respectfully disagree with some of the extremely negative comments. While not perfect, Meadowfield has been a great school for our family. For starters, our teaching staff is exceptional. We have some outstanding teachers who are not only gifted at teaching, but invested in our childrens' overall welfare. The Paideia program has been a wonderful tool in teaching the children how to problem solve, think through things, and form/respectfully discuss individual opinions. We have found the children to be overall kind to one another and discipline problems have not been an issue. We are grateful for our neighborhood school."

    "Meadowfield S-U-C-K-S!!!! This school is not parent friendly at all! Things a parent/grandparent are genuinely concerned about in reference to their child is made into a joke or brushed off and not taken seriously. If it were mu decision, I would not send my children to this school!!! I believe my grandchildren are going here strictly due to convenience. What a waste!"
