Meadowbrook students succeed in academic bootcamp

A challenging program that gives students the opportunity to earn two verified credits before entering their ninth-grade year. Over 70 students are participating in the program at Meadowbrook High School. According to Matt Bland, Success Program coordinator, the Meadowbrook High School Success program is expanding for the school year 2012-2013. He said, “So far, we have over 200 rising ninth-graders enrolled in the program and we expect to add 40 to 50 more students during the school year.”
