In recent years, at Meridian Elementary our K-3 students have been able to take part in an accelerated classroom experience. We are excited to announce that this will be extended to include K-6 students! Our staff, along with the help of district personnel, have worked to create a sustainable accelerated classroom option in our K-6 grade levels.
