Principal's Message


September 2017

I would like to start by thanking all of our wonderful and incredibly dedicated staff and parents who have assisted in registering and enrolling almost 1400 students over the past few weeks.  As you can imagine, correctly placing each student into our available classes is a complicated process. 

As a California Distinguished School, a National Blue Ribbon school and a Gold Ribbon School, we believe you will experience a first-class educational environment.   Being honored as a Gold Ribbon school is evidence that our staff continues to provide students with an outstanding common core standards-based educational experience in all content areas.  As a 6-8th grade middle school we work to help our sixth grade students transition to a more rigorous curriculum by providing them with the support necessary to begin changing teachers, adjust to locker rooms in PE, select electives, go to camp, and learn organizational skills.  Our village format has students assigned to a set of “cohort” teachers who get to know each student.  As continuing students at MBMS, we find our seventh and eighth grade students feel a level of ease and comfort as they go around campus.  Our students continue to be supported by their teachers, counselors, support staff and administration. 


All of our students have the opportunity to be involved in various activities.  Some of these opportunities are Science Olympiad, Robotics Club, Recycling Club, Book of the Month, Math Club, Cross Country, Wrestling, Basketball, Chess Club, Maker Monday and we continue to add more.  We encourage your child to take advantage of these opportunities.

Our parents also have the opportunity to be involved in Meadowbrook’s Educational Foundation (MEF), PTSA, as a coach for various clubs, volunteering on campus and at school events.  We pride ourselves on our parent involvement and believe it is a crucial component of our school’s success.

Thank you for taking the time to visit our website.  You will find helpful information including aspects of our academic and extra-curricular programming. 

I look forward to a fantastic year!
