What makes Meridian Schools special?

W

e provide our students with friendly, family-like school environment. Our classes are made up of no more than 20 students in the Elementary School and 24 in the High School . At Meridian we focus on the importance of small class sizes to individually help students’ weak areas and advance their strengths. In addition, small class sizes make our staff members more readily available for extra help or to further challenge individual students. This solution also gives students plenty of interaction with their teacher as well as gives the students an opportunity to work in groups and do project work.

he Meridian School community is comprised of students of over 30 nationalities, their parents, and an international teaching and administrative staff.  That undoubtedly gives the opportunity to interact with different cultures, customs and traditions. Our students are exposed to plenty of languages, we offer English, Polish, Spanish, German and French lessons. Moreover, we strongly believe that multicultural education helps students appreciate the pluralistic nature of our world and the inherent values of the cultures they meet.
