Welcome to Broadmeadow Elementary School


The Broadmeadow School is an exciting, vibrant and diverse learning community comprised of close to 575 students and their families.  Our school community includes METCO students as well as the town-wide therapeutic program (gr. 3-5).  The Broadmeadow School takes pride in a strong kindergarten through fifth grade curriculum integrated with fine and performing arts instruction.  The faculty works collaboratively in grade level teams to ensure consistent and rigorous comprehensive curriculum and instruction.  The Broadmeadow School is committed to the Responsive Classroom approach, which supports children academically, socially and emotionally.  Our school receives significant support from our School Council and PTC, which provide arts and curriculum enrichment throughout the school year and serve as the locus for community service opportunities within the Broadmeadow community. Each day we try to live up to our core values: acceptance, caring, curiosity, learning, and responsibility.

I welcome you to explore our website, and experience some of what makes Broadmeadow such an exceptional place to learn and grow! Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at 781-455-0448, x305 or at emily_gaberman@needham.k12.ma.us
