Meridian Elementary School is a comprehensive public school encompassing grades Young Five through fourth grade. Our secure-entry building sits in the center of our district campus, between the junior high and high school. As part of Midland County’s only New Tech school system, we combine modern technology with innovative teaching techniques and a culture of student responsibility – enabling, engaging, and empowering students.
With an enrollment of approximately 470, we proudly serve the communities of Sanford, Edenville, and Hope, Michigan as part of Meridian Public Schools.
Our mission is to provide a safe and supportive environment where all students develop respect for self and others while learning the life-long skills necessary to participate responsibly in a changing world. Our school enables students to reach higher thanks to meaningful learning experiences.
We teach reading, writing, math, social studies, and science, in addition to offering three essential “specials”: art, music, and physical education. We teach the common core state standards through a blend of direct instruction and project-based learning, while computer-adaptive instruction enhances our student learning in all areas.
Meridian Elementary School is one of only a few elementary schools nationwide that are members of the New Tech Network (NTN). Project-Based Learning (PBL) is an important element of our instructional approach, and thus we strive to provide outcomes that matter, teaching that engages, a culture that empowers, and technology that enables.

Each school in our district interprets these pillars for student success in a way that’s appropriate for the respective learners and learning levels.
