~Laurence Sterne

The purpose of Meadowfield Elementary is to provide quality education, develop responsible citizens and nurture lifelong learners.

In partnership with our community, Meadowfield will advance intellectual and social growth within an active, democratic, learning environment which supports and encourages lifelong learning.
Meadowfield will develop academic excellence, responsibility in citizenship and character, and contributions to society for every student.
  • Everyone learns
  • Everyone deserves a quality education in a safe, supportive environment
  • Learning is the activity of one's own mind in response to opportunities and effort
  • Everyone is responsible for his/her choices and actions
  • Communication, relationships and community involvement are essential in educational excellence
  • Change is necessary for continuous growth  
We are Richland One, a leader in transforming lives through education, empowering all students to achieve their potential and dreams.
