Love love love this school! I have two children, both whom have severe disabilities and the teachers and staff have been nothing but kind and supportive to both of them. My oldest, whom is autistic, was at West Meade for both prek and kindergarten started out with major behavioral issues, had troubles with communicating, and always wanted to seclude himself away from everyone now has blossomed into a very caring, intelligent individual. The team of teachers and specailists are just outstanding and did everything in their power to make sure my son felt welcomed. My son ended his kindergarten year reading and writing at a second grade level which is very unusual for a child with autism. My youngest, whom has muscular dystrophy, has received the same warm welcoming as his brother and is very excited to be going back to West Meade next year. Couldn't be any happier with this school and feel so grateful for everything they have done for my children.
I have heard great things about the teachers here, however given my experience and hearing about a few other parents experiences in my neighborhood, I can't believe this principal still has a job here. I found her to care more about boisterously announcing the power of her position and exerting a bullish nature towards these small children instead of being an exemplary leader.
The teachers are great! The office staff is just not very child friendly! The office has been so rude to my family over the last 4 months! I have family staying with me for medical reasons until my husband comes back from school. At least once a week I get a call saying that my nephew isn't allowed at the school. (When myself, my husband, my sister and once with my sister and myself brought over papers to the school approved by housing...were told that they never received the papers for anyone) It's a joke, and I'm not laughing! But hey the Bus Drivers are AMAZING!!
This school has undergone major changes beginning 2011-2012 school year due to the opening of a new elementary school on post. West Meade Elementary is now West Meade Early Education Center and only houses kindergarten and below for the entire Ft. Meade post. Approximately half of the staff members are new to the school, and old members had to interview and be re-hired; all teachers are now young-learner focused. Administration is no-nonsense and can seem abrupt. The building is old, but updates can be found throughout; smart boards in every room, new playground equipment, and materials. In response to recent comment regarding lunch money... the district decides to feed students with no lunch money a jelly or cheese sandwich and water, not the school. Also, all schools in the district participate in an online lunch mgt. program where parents can track their balance, make deposits online, and receive email alerts when funds are low. Regarding the comment about Curriculum, again, is determined by the district and these teachers follow it. Overall you will find West Meade to be a typical public school with common disappointments, and benefits.
