The best experiences i have had at this school include the Meade Idol talent show and the dance company concerts. The school is very diverse and that is the reason i would attend it again but the teaching and learning experience was not that worth it.

Nice teachers, OK principal. A lot of bullying goes on.

Meade High School creates an environment that doesn't value education, but instead values test scores and drama. The common activities among people at this school is to fight, have sex, and to do drugs. Those who strive to overcome adversity in this school are only punished by those who aren't intelligent enough to know that applying for an upper level class when they can't handle it only hurts the other students who can handle it. This school has wonderful pieces to it and like all high schools they have their problems, but this school has more problems than solutions. The administration has no control over students and only stands back and watches as they simultaneously ruin their lives. The population of this school is too high and the thought of learning at your own pace was close to impossible with there being 30 other kids in a classroom.
