I would rate our experience a disappointment for me and my son . We struggled for 3 years without any support other than one or two teachers that were amazing .

This school is a safe and positive place for children. There are many after school activities for the children to engage in. The teachers and support staff do the best they can with limited resources. The parents in the community have an active Home and School Association and School Advisory Council.

my son attends Meredith Elementary and has been bullied on several occasions, both physically and via text. The principal took offense and penalized us for taking him home on a day he was punched and hurt by another child. Teachers were cruel to the children, calling them 'annoying' and screaming at them repeatedly. I volunteered for several field trips and different events and have witnessed first hand. The Principal did not get involved at all, and was not interested in hearing anything negative.

last sentence of last review should say "because of the lack of available support staff due to budget constraints." (not that the existing support staff isn't high quality).

Our school is William Meredith. It's a rarity to be able to say conflicts have been resolved, and animosity dissolved. It has. I was the parent who wrote a poor review earlier. The school is a success overall. I feel grateful that the principal is making an effort. Nothing is ever perfect and with parents and children, life is complicated. Emotions as a parent are challenging. Being in charge of an entire school filled with children is heavy. I don't always understand the why and how of many, but if in the end there is a golden hearted purpose at hand, I can't fight that. It has been a learning experience to overcome our initial difficulties here. The support that shown throughout the difficulties is what makes this school even greater in my eyes. We can't help but love it, and my girls will be staying here until 8th grade, at their request. So whatever it is that went on, it was not felt enough by the children, for them to want to leave. They are in love with it. That's what matters. They are learning and growing and loved.
