The California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP) is a system of assessments that measure student progress in different subjects. CAASPP is designed to help teachers monitor the needs and successes of individual students as they progress toward mastery of the state adopted standards.
Meridian Elementary Schools scores for the 2018/2019 school year showcase all the hard work, dedication, and commitment to academic excellence that our students and teachers are committed to. We are so pleased that every grade level tested showed incredible improvement and growth in every academic area when compared to the previous 2017/2018 CAASPP scores.
There are openings for interested students and families!

Dear Meridian Community,
It is quite the privilege to be writing this message to express how we at this unique family school will care for our present and future while caring for its legacy and tradition. Each and every day, I hold the bar for excellence with one question: “Is this what I’d want for my child?” That is what each and every student and family can count on here at Meridian Elementary School and District.
Every decision is made through the lens of what is best for students first, with care and kindness to staff, families and community. With the above question and this barometer as a guide for all we do, we can not help being successful academically, socially and in decisions about life.
We have begun this journey by adding elements to the program that may have been missing in enrichment activities and never been done here before like Outdoor Education. With the excitement of the new, we also will not rest instructionally until we have met the needs of our students to achieve well in English Language Arts and Mathematics. We know that a well-rounded education inspires students and motivates our kids to want to come to school to learn and achieve!
I can go on and on about all the experience the staff will bring, the positive systems to enhance school culture, rewards for achievement and doing the right things, the instructional practices we all know and are keenly able to provide; however, in the end it is how we respond to our students’ needs and the relationships we build to ensure students’ high levels of excellence as scholars, citizens and people.
That will be our ultimate contribution to all our futures. Teachers and educators have the greatest responsibility in the world as we help shape the future in tandem with our parents and community and we take it to heart and seriously as we know we are giving care to our families’ greatest treasures.
They are in good hands!
Sincerely and with gratitude,
Marty Ofenham, Superintendent
