Our Mission

The Meridian School promotes a balance of mind and heart, of contemplation and action, of individuality and a commitment to the community.


Curriculum should challenge, engage and inspire students. At Meridian, we provide an excellent academic education in which the joy of childhood infuses the excitement of learning.

Character is built upon integrity, compassion, and responsibility. At Meridian, students are guided toward self-discipline and thoughtful decisions, mindful of themselves, others and their environment.

Community is the heart of a school. At Meridian, all students, staff and families are known and valued. We strive to create an equitable and inclusive culture. Our connections are strengthened through close student-teacher relationships, strong parent involvement, and active engagement with our local and global communities.

The Meridian School is excited to share our 2014-18 Strategic Plan

Meridian Highlights
In May, the 4th & 5th grade chorus had an opportunity to visit KEXP’s studios. During their visit, they were able to record the jingle for the John in the Morning show. Their recording aired live on Friday, June 3rd and you can listen to it here!

The Meridian community is one where students, staff, and families feel they are known, valued and belong. Our connections are strengthened through strong parent involvement and relationships with senior citizens, professional artists, and environmental educators that share our historic building.


American hospitals care takes a central place in American health system, although in recent years its value has been decreased and displaced by the activities of clinics, ambulances and nursing homes. According to Dr. Peter Slavin – the president of Massachusetts General Hospital «rating of hospitals by US News and World Report can be considered the most influential in the United States.”
