Welcome to Dallas Center-Grimes Meadows! DC-G Meadows opened in 2012. We are located at 2555 W 1st Street in Grimes. Our school is home to approximately 425 students in eighth and ninth grades.
At DC-G Meadows, we embrace our motto: Meadows Magic! In our school we empower our students to shape their future by offering a wealth of exploratory classes and extracurricular activities. Within the core academic classes, we create joyful and challenging learning opportunities that place an emphasis on engaging lessons that incorporate hands on activities. Our students excel both inside and outside of the classroom.
Our building is connected to the high school, allowing us several advantages as one campus. The high school students serve as positive role models and mentors, and our Meadows students have access to accelerated learning experiences at the high school.
DC-G Meadows staff are dedicated to professional growth & development as they regularly collaborate in professional learning communities (PLC’s), aimed at continuous improvement in the areas of teaching and learning. Our District Model guides our teachers’ work in the classroom by focusing on the 3 C’s:
Our District-Wide Areas of Focus allow us to achieve the 3 C’s and put our model into action.
Curriculum is guaranteed and viable
Environment is safe and positive
Relationships are professional and respectful
Technology is infused throughout the system.
At Meadows, we honor our students’ learning styles, personalities, and interests. We encourage our students to become risk-takers and allow them many opportunities to learn. With our strong emphasis on meeting the needs of all students through differentiated instruction and research-based practices, we believe in the importance of providing guidance while also pushing our students to take ownership of their learning. We provide support through Student Services, Guidance, ESOL, and Special Education programs. We hold high expectations and offer support to help our students reach their goals.
