    "I would never want my child in a school system run on fear, and not facts. The superintendent and principal are complete morons, and should have their heads checked. I hope they are sued for violating the constitution. The phrase that comes to mind when thinking of this lousy institution, is the Salem witch hunt."

    "Meadowside has been a great school, thanks to a winning combination of caring teachers and an awesome principal. Unfortunately, Principal Davis recently left Meadowside, to lead a Bethany school. The school start is just a few weeks away, and they have not yet found a replacement, although they spent the summer looking for one. What the new principal will be like remains to be seen. To those saying that the curriculum is dry, please understand that the schools are having "Common Core" shoved down their throats and all of the teachers are afraid of losing their jobs if the children do not perform like trained monkeys on the new tests. Common Core is untested curriculum and it profits no one but Bill Gates and his cronies, who are making billions annually on this fiasco. Since when does a technology geek get the right to decide what every child in this country must learn? And to go so far as to make professional teachers fear for their careers if the children do not live up to these dry, dumbed-down standards...beyond ridiculous. Hopefully this will quickly pass, like the "New Math" did in the 70's."

    "I agree that the way the curriculum is presented is not very creative. Students return home with piles of dittoes. The experience lacks meaning and I would prefer more creative inquiry. My child comments on the lack of friendliness with the adults. The teaching style tends to isolate the opportunity allowing children to learn from children. I would like more of an environment with positive reinforcement rather than displaying the children in front of others when an incident occurs while often minor. A third grade teacher announced to her classroom that SHE thinks it is babyish that they bring toys to school (to use during recess). I would like to see more developmental understanding of what children need to be healthy participants in our world. Learning to appreciate and accept differences by allowing the classroom to open up to the personality differences may be another way. School is very teacher centered. I also feel that discipline seems to interfere with personality preferences therefore discriminating. In the classroom I noticed the larger percentage of students were dependent with thinking skills and had difficulty solving basic problems where solutions would never be wrong."

    "This is a great school. They have skilled, dedicated and talented teachers like Miss Jaggers and such a wonderful principal who has a gift for being very kind but very firm at the same time. My son really Loves to go to school and he has developed a reading skill level of 24, where 10 is the expected skill level for a 1st grade child. I am really thankful to Meadowside school and the teachers for all their help, co-operation and guidance provided to us"
