Welcome to Meadowridge
Our school is an International Baccalaureate (IB) Continuum World School, accredited through multiple organizations. We celebrate teaching and learning through the most balanced, demanding, and international curriculum in the world, and have built a culture which enables it: a community of families who believe that children best learn in a culture of conscious caring, academic challenge, clear and high expectation, constant communication, intercultural understanding, collaboration with families, creative teaching, and inviting and open facilities. We live what we teach, and model what we believe – and we do it together with our families.
“We are a school which values academic achievement, but also one which insists on our children living well, living balanced lives, and flourishing within a community.
This allows a process of learning through inquiry, learning through experience, learning which becomes personalized, and learning about ourselves, our community, and our world. It develops young adults who, as leaders, understand that the way to excellence involves understanding and working with and for others, and who have developed the skills, knowledge, and dispositions to be able to engage with complex issues in intercultural settings, with a foundation of fairness and just treatment of all.
To become people who are knowledgeable and fair and balanced requires that their school continually models a commitment to knowledge, fairness, and balance. To become adults who know how to work alongside others from many cultures requires that, in their school, they learn and live within an intercultural community. Our school is designed to help families encourage children to aspire to become the leaders of tomorrow, to be people who love complexity, who insist upon excellence, and who live in kindness and understanding towards others.
"Welcome to Meadowridge, more than a school,
but a community of learners and an expression of common values.”
As you first encounter our school, I want to encourage you to speak with our children, teachers, staff, and families. Ask about the ways in which we engage children, and the ways that we structure experiential learning. Inquire about the balance in our timetables of classroom time with time for athletics, arts, service, play, and social engagement. We are a school which values academic achievement, but also one which insists on our children living well, living balanced lives, and flourishing within a community.
Welcome to Meadowridge, more than a school, but a community of learners and an expression of common values.
