This school is horrible! Not only do they not do anything about bullys, but most of the teachers here are just warm bodies watching your kids! There''s no drive to educate.

My daughter just started Kindergarten this year and she loves going to school every day. She is SO VERY excited about school and about everything she is learning and so am I. Honestly I was so worried about what kind of teacher she would have and how this experience would be for her but as it turns out my little girl couldn't have been luckier then getting a teacher like Mrs Gasca. I think Mrs Gasca and all the kindergarten teachers at Meadowridge are an incredible team and we are looking forward to First grade. I couldn't thank Mrs Gasca enough for making the first year of school for my baby so fulfilling!
