MU HISTORY – The opening of the school year, 1986-1987, Meadowcreek High School relieved overcrowding at Berkmar High School and Norcross High School. It was named for the Meadows Family School and the Creek Indians, both once located near the site of the school. Today, its location at 4455 Steve Reynolds Boulevard is prime real estate, fronted by a five-lane thoroughfare a mile or so from Interstate 85.
Meadowcreek serves a unique student body made up of students representing many cultures, nationalities and languages. The school’s mascot is the Mustang, and its colors are Carolina blue, navy, and white. These were chosen in a vote by the first student body from a variety of choices (Warriors and Indians were also finalists).
