    "This school is suffering under the leadership of it's current director and the head of the board of trustees. One former Mead parent (who at one time had 3 children attending the school) asserted that it is controlled by the three fat women (the director, the head of the business office, and the director of development). And that parent is not only a devout supporter of the school, but friends with one of the 3 fat women). Mead is suffering from a severe malaise and needs to be freshened up with a new director possessing the leadership skills and strong vision to move the school ahead before it collapses. I have heard several former graduates are placing bets on how much longer the school stays standing. I was a loyal parent for well over a dozen years and feel sad that a great school, based on cutting edge teaching/learning, is deteriorating, whether its the inability of the staff to hire appropriate new staff (the Spanish teacher being one huge example) or deal with bullying in an appropriate manner (my daughter was bullied for 3 years and it was blamed on her the entire time). A waste of what was an amazing school...."

    "My child graduated from the Mead School last spring and I am blown away by the skills she learned that other kids her age don't have. Not only did Mead give her the academic foundation she needed to go on to a very demanding private school, but their preparation has allowed her to navigate complex social issues in a mature and confident way. The admissions officers at all her schools said she had "an old soul." What she really has is a "Mead soul.""

    "My child just started daycare at Mead's infant center a few months ago, and it has been a wonderful experience for both of us. They really do tailor the infant program to each individual child's needs, and my child is always so happy every morning when I drop him off. He gives each of his teachers/ care givers a big smile when he sees them. It makes it so much easier to be at work knowing he is so well cared for. Further, he seems to be developing so fast. Between teachers that really pay attention and notice what skills he's ready to practice, and the great set up in that infant room, I couldn't ask for a better learning environment for someone his age. I haven't decided if he will stay on for the toddler program or pre-school---I will have to investigate those programs independently. But I would recommend the infant center at Mead to anyone without hesitation."

    "I just left the Light and Life celebration at the school. The evening was wonderful, engaging, and filled with student enthusiasm. The students demonstrated hard work as they were key in each aspect of the evening-- performances, choice of music, stage management, lights. The academics have been challenging yet responsive. The teachers love what they do. The creativity is matched with a desire to balance challenge. I might like my child to have more homework but my child takes responsibility for the work which is better than what happened at the last school. The school has been a great choice because my child loves it, wants to excel because the environment demands it and provides the structure. We are delighted to be here."

    "I have been a Mead parent for a dozen years. Sending my children to Mead has been the most important and beneficial decision we made for our children and our family. Two of my children have graduated. I love what the school did for them when they were there, as well as what the school has given them for the rest of their lives. With one in college and another in high school, they seek the intellectual stimulation, the love of learning, and abiding friendships that they developed during their many years at the school. My third child is still at Mead. I could imagine no better place. The faculty and administration intimately know my child and are focused on enriching her academic and social development. If you can't tell, I think it is a magnificent and unique school that is decades ahead of other schools."
