Meadowbrook Elementary School

Flag as Inappropriate

<p>A fixture in the Golden Valley community since 1884, Meadowbrook Elementary School has more than 640 students who have access to some of the most state-of-the-art learning technology available. </p>
<p>Meadowbrook has its own garden, an outdoor classroom, a snack cart that serves nutritious food to children, a media center, a massive playground and a gymnasium other schools would envy. The latter exists thanks to a $4 million collaboration between the City of Golden Valley and the Hopkins School District.</p> <p>The school was recently renovated, but aside from the new interior, one impressive feature you'll find in first-, second-, fifth- and some sixth-grade classrooms is that chairs have been replaced by big exercise balls. School administrators say the balls create an active learning environment for students.</p> <p>More than 40 percent of Meadowbrook students are open-enrolled from other school districts, and many grade levels have waiting lists. Twenty percent of Meadowbrook students are students of color.</p> <p>In the words of Principal Greta Evans-Becker, "It's more than a school, it's a community."</p>
