School Reviews

Honestly really bright and intelligent students, with the kindest teachers and staff. I dont know what the other comments are going on about but 2016 meadowbrook is amazing, the mayor of Virginia himself even came to visit.

This is the worst school ever. Teacher don't know how to teach their students right. This school mostly only cares about the way you dress, they lack to care about student's education. They wouldn't even replace my Guitar! even though they replaced another student guitar for $800 not to long ago and mine was only $150! This is also maybe the most racist school in the county. I recommend that you do not send you child though this hell.
