Our Mission & Philosophy

  • Successful education requires a three-way partnership between students, teachers, and parents.

  • Successful education is most readily accomplished in an environment of serenity, where good manners and good citizenship are expected.

  • Successful education is the product of having a Master Teacher in every classroom who "teaches to the top," that is, keeps the brightest student in the class fully challenged while providing a pathway to success for every student.

  • Successful education results from financial resources being directed to the maximum degree possible towards the classroom and ancillary educational activities.

The Meadows School develops in its students a love of, and respect for, learning—inspiring them to seek knowledge independently and preparing them for higher academic pursuits.

The School maintains high standards and seeks to instill in its students the concept that education carries with it an obligation to self, family, and community. It encourages each student to become a compassionate and productive member of the increasingly global society of the 21st century.

The Meadows School admits students of any race, color, and national or ethnic origin to all rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to the students of the School. It does not discriminate on the basis of age, sex, race, religion, color, national, or ethnic origin.
