School Learning Plan

Meadow Park Middle School

Who Are We Now:

Academics: At Meadow Park, we offer a wide variety of academic programming to address the needs of a diverse student population while we attempt to live our mission each day. Our AVID Program has two components. The AVID elective now reaches more than 100 Meadow Park students and should continue to grow. In addition, our staff has done a wonderful job integrating AVID strategies, particularly around collaboration, during instruction in all classes. We believe our students' voice is important and giving our students the opportunity to work together and interact in meaningful ways leads to powerful learning. In addition, our Dual Language program is gaining consistency in both number of students and course offerings. This year the program offers two subject areas in Spanish for 6th and 7th grades in Language Arts and Math in addition to 8th grade Language Arts. The Summa program is shrinking with the adjustment to our boundaries. We now have just over 100 Summa students across the three grade levels. Meadow Park achievement data has historically been divided along socioeconomic and demographic lines that were predictable. In recent years, our achievement data has grown incrementally but our academic growth data was on an upward swing prior to the pandemic. Given the changes in boundaries, shift in our population, and lack of much recent testing information, it is difficult to measure academic achievement in the current school year.

Activities and Athletics: Many students find their most positive connection with school through the various activities and athletics programs offered outside of the school day. The last few years at Meadow Park, we have had a very large multicultural soccer program, a thriving performing arts department, and sports offerings through THPRD. We continue to have a wide variety of clubs that happen on Tuesdays and Thursdays after school, with staff volunteering their time to ensure students are connected to school.

School Climate and Culture: Meadow Park is a school with a diverse population of learners and a wide variety of programs. We want our students to attend and believe it is our legacy to have students leave us knowing that they are cared for, believed in, and can make an impact on the world. Our school is proud that attendance was on the rise prior to the pandemic. This was done through the hard work of staff, tracking absences and intentionally connecting with students that were missing. Relationship building, restorative practices, social and emotional support, and keeping students in class focused on learning has become a cornerstone of the student management philosophy at Meadow Park. The workforce shortage and number of new staff have made the implementation of this challenging as we have had to be more reactionary than in past years.
