We're Better Together!

Meadow Glens Elementary is located in beautiful Naperville, Illinois, a suburb located 28 miles west of Chicago. At Meadow Glens, our vision is, “Preparing ALL students for success.” This informs every decision. All stakeholders are valued as part of a highly effective system committed to maximizing student success at every level. We work together to thoughtfully interconnect our efforts and improve student learning with the District Strategic Focus and a system of practice that supports success for all learners. We deliberately focus on aligning and synchronizing the critical components of professional development, balanced assessment, rigorous and guaranteed curriculum, high-quality instruction, multi-level systems of support and intervention, and resources to maximize learning for all students.

All decision-making groups in our school regularly use data to affect student learning. The building leadership team studies universal data to identify school- or grade-level wide trends. Professional Learning Communities, co-teaching partnerships, and Child Service and Student Support teams look at data by grade levels, classrooms, and individual student progress in order to determine how instruction can be personalized to meet student needs.

The increasing diversity at Meadow Glens and the movement to globalization have prompted us to employ culturally responsive teaching practices. Both inside and outside of the classroom, we actively look for ways to utilize students’ personal cultural experiences as a foundation upon which to develop knowledge and skills.

An unwavering focus on preparing ALL students for success drives the work we do every day at Meadow Glens Elementary.
