    "I'm a long time parent of the school and can say unequivocally that a Mead education is helping to shape and create my children into great learners and people. Over the years I've watched graduates give incredibly moving and insightful speeches about who they are, and what they have learned at Mead. You forget that these are 13/14 year-olds on the stage presenting to hundreds of people!!! They all posses a je ne sais quoi.....a quiet maturity..... a type of charisma that comes from being comfortable in their own skin... no matter what their unique skills and abilities are. It is something that even local public and private secondary schools remark on. As they are giving their speeches, I reminisce about what they were like in 1st grade, or 5th. They didn't get this way overnight, they had lots of practice! It starts with group sing, sharing assembly, Primary Play and snowballs throughout the years with so many experiential opportunities for learning. Learning how to manage their emotions. Learning how to collaborate. Learning academics. Mead's program is based on a progressive education philosophy, so do a little research then come see how truly great Mead is!"

    "The Mead School is a truly unique school. Kids who attend The Mead School are happy and whole. They are self advocates. They are autonomous learners. At a very young age, they learn academic, social, and emotional skills. Where else can you find Third Graders who say, "I don't understand this. Can you explain it to me again in a different way?" and "Mistakes are not bad. They're part of learning." If you have a child who hates school, The Mead School is the place for him/her."

    "One parent and 2 former Mead students have their own personal estimates as to when the school will fold. The school begs for new leadership. It is a fantastic school, and I believe wholeheartedly in its approach to social-emotional learning, but it lacks professionalism. Where is a biannual school bulliten? Where us an open house where the school is operating during that time? Where is there a proper reading curriculum in place? I realize that Mead is into organic learning but there must be some sort of scaffolding ax there was when my oldest daughter started at the school. And yes, my 3rd daughter was bullied, but she was always blamed, and it was not handled appropriately."

    "I had an opportunity to work at this school and I can tell you that the staff is dedicated and truly invest their all in the students. It was a fun place to work and the students were wonderful."

    "As a parent of a student for many years, I cannot speak highly enough about the wonderful staff and administration at this blessing of a school. My child prior to Mead was ostracized and because they weren't insanely competitive were cast aside by students and teachers at their old school. At Mead, my child is honored for who they are, supported to find out who they want to be and taught in a way that makes sense for them. The fact that reviewers come on here and make fun of people's weight clearly shows someone who has an axe to grind and someone who just doesn't get it. If at any point I've needed/wanted something for my child I have gotten immediate communication and action from the staff. Not only that but the idea of the Alumni talking "bad" about the school is preposterous. Just take a look at Light and Life or the Spring Fling performances where there are dozens of alumni coming back "home" or some of their testimonials about their Mead experience and you will truly understand how Mead is a school with an incredible and special connection with all that have walked through their doors."
