School Reviews

Both of my sons have attended Meridian and have grown as creative, independent learners with tremendous initiative. The faculty are bright, enthusiastic and caring and students get lots of attention and are known well. Communication with parents is excellent. Students have an evening exhibition of their projects (papers, experiments, art work, etc.) three times a year so you can really see the quality of their work.
