Current School Organization

Meehan Middle School is a District-operated school serving 7th and 8th grades. Meehan has four elementary schools as feeders: JH Brown, Forrest, Pollock, and
Holme. All four of those schools are K-6th grade.

There are a total of 7,574 K-8 students living in the Meehan catchment area, where the population has been steadily increasing for the past five years, at an average of 2% per year. This trend is expected to continue at the same rate for the next five years, which will cause an additional deficiency of 700 seats.
