About Broad Meadows Middle School
Established in 1957, Broad Meadows Middle School was one of Quincy’s first middle schools. With a diverse population that draws from several parts of the city, Broad Meadows possesses a thriving multicultural atmosphere. Known for its outstanding curriculum and dedicated staff, the school has been referred to as “a living, breathing, vital example of middle level education at its best.” Our primary mission is to provide the finest education possible to each student by offering a challenging academic curriculum, a nurturing environment for the middle school child, and a positive school climate encouraging social growth.
The school provides a variety of opportunities for students to celebrate their diversity, develop an appreciation for the arts, and encourages opportunities such as community service and global awareness to foster a sense of social responsibility. In September of 1991, Broad Meadows was recognized as a National School Of Excellence by the U.S. Department of Education’s Secondary School Recognition Program. In addition, Broad Meadows was one of the only middle schools in the country to receive the “Blue Ribbon Award” in both History and The Arts Education. In 1996, Meadows was also bestowed the prestigious Reebok International Human Rights Award for its renowned work with child labor. In 1998, The U.S. Agency for International Development made Meadows the first school ever to receive its “Domestic Partner Award.” For over fifty years Broad Meadows Middle School, “Home of the Breakers,” has truly been a special place.
