I think that Meredith is a terrific school. I moved to Philadelphia this year and I didn't know the area too well, but the one gleaming thing that I did hear was about Meredith.

This is a wonderful school with a great new principal that is encouraging continued success of this school for our children.

There is good parent involvement and the location is great. I have a huge concern that the needs of special education students are not being meet. If you have a special needs child you may want to consider other schools in philadelphia.
