Warmth. Guidance. Challenge. Fun.
These are some of the words that describe our Lower School, grades junior kindergarten through five. Meadowbrook parents feel that we hit the sweet spot between foundational skills and innovative spirit.At Meadowbrook, we are redefining rigor. We teach an advanced curriculum and challenge all of our children to reach their fullest potential. We group students by performance in math and reading. We focus on strong character development. Challenge, rigor and innovation are only part of the Meadowbrook equation. We do all of it in a joyful environment, one in which learning really does feel like fun.
We never stand still. Our teachers constantly evaluate and refine their curriculum to keep learning hands-on and active, and keep children engaged. We engender problem-solving skills, creativity and critical thinking. Every student gets to spend ample time in the EurekaLab to push the boundaries of his or her imagination. Children are asked to think out of the box from their first days in junior kindergarten, empathize with those around them and be curious about the world.
When you step foot on our campus, the warmth and character of our community come shining through. As Head of Lower School Rashna Mehta will tell you, we take fun seriously, and it shows in our amazing arts choices, novel physical education classes, and creative assemblies. It shows in our very happy children.
No wonder you’ll see the words “Happiness is Going to Meadowbrook” over our doorway.
