Mission & Core Values

Lower School Classroom
The Meadows School Mission


In its pursuit of excellence, The Meadows School inspires ambitious students to love and respect higher learning, to passionately serve their communities, and to lead meaningful lives as citizens of a global society.

We live our Mission through our Core Values

Scholarship

We hold ourselves to the highest academic standards by placing the highest value on academic rigor. Every pupil is provided with the opportunity to realize their individual potential, and students accomplish what may at first have seemed impossible. Passionate and talented teachers “Teach them to Reach” by promoting independent thinking, problem-solving, and continual growth.

Character

A great education carries with it an obligation to self, family, and community. From the Lower School’s Good Citizens program to the Upper School’s Honor Code, service to others, empathy, honesty, integrity, and good citizenship are at the core of The Meadows experience.

Community

Successful education requires a three-way partnership between students, teachers, and parents. Families are welcomed to campus as active participants in a school community forged around a common appreciation for the transformative power of a top-flight educational experience.

Inclusion

Our strengths are all different, and our differences are our greatest strengths. Students and teachers value the unique qualities of each individual as vital to the shared educational experience.

Discovery

Education is a journey, not a destination. We provide students with the freedom to explore athletics, arts, forensics, and other extracurricular activities as central parts of their educational experience. At The Meadows, students develop a love of learning by having the chance to learn what they love.
