Lower School

At Meadowbrook, rigorous academics take students as far as they can go.

Whether that’s fluency in another language, conducting original research, or taking geometry in eighth grade, our talented teachers engage students in an advanced curriculum from the very beginning.

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.

An Early Foundation

 All subjects, from Spanish to programming and engineering, begin in junior kindergarten. From their first day, children are asked to think out of the box, be curious about the world, and empathize with those around them.

  • Senior Kindergarten students interviewed an architect, built a wooden model of the Hancock Tower, and constructed a geodesic dome large enough to play in.
  • Second graders perform a song in Spanish for their annual Rainforest Assembly.
  • A result of year-long study and exploration, third graders put on Open Studio for the entire community. 
  • For the fifth grade Passion Project, each student researches, writes, and develops a website on a topic of their choice.

Grade Level Curriculum Guides


Co-Teaching Model

All of our lower school classes have two to three teachers in each classroom. Through team teaching, breakout sessions, and performance based math and reading groups, we ensure all children are challenged and supported to reach their fullest potential.

• In addition to grade-level teachers, reading specialists often join class time for enrichment and support.

• Other specialists like technology teachers, Spanish teachers, and art teachers collaborate with classroom teachers to give each child and unparalleled whole-child experience. 

The Meadowbrook Family

We like to see families and friends on campus, including parents, grandparents, caregivers, and neighbors. There will be many opportunities for you to visit, volunteer, and get involved.

The Top 10%

Nearly 1 in 3 Meadowbrook fourth and fifth graders finished in the top 10% in the 2018 International Math Olympiad.

“Our son’s teachers understand in detail what kind of learner he is and provide him tailored support, recognizing the importance of not only challenging him but also maintaining his confidence as a learner. My wife and I are continually surprised how well the teachers understand the needs of our children.”
