Meridian is a public, tuition-free charter school funded through state and federal dollars like traditional schools. Open to all students who live within the boundaries of Williamson County in Central Texas, Meridian is the vehicle realized by several Williamson County families that worked together with the goal of offering an education that will bring a love of learning to the classroom for their children and yours.
Located in Round Rock, on I-35 (just south of Harley Davidson), Meridian serves all students living in Williamson County. As a charter school, Meridian is a school of 'choice' offering an inquiry-based curriculum for grades K-12.
The intent of the Meridian Charter was to become a continuum school for the International Baccalaureate Program, offering the Primary Years Program (PYP), the Middle Years Program (MYP) and the Diploma Program (DP). It takes approximately three years to implement and become authorized for each program. As of May 2017, we have done just that and are proud to be an authorized PYP, MYP, and DP school.
Meridian School does not discriminate on the basis of gender, race, color, age, sexual orientation, national origin, ethnicity, religion, disability, academic, athletic, or artistic ability, or the district the child would otherwise attend without regard to disability or handicapping condition, in administration or educational policies, admission and hiring policies and other school administered programs.
