Solid academic program. Good intentioned administration. Some turnover among teachers that is atypical and can be viewed as disruptive when it comes in the last 6 weeks of school. Stringent rules - that some children need and other will find very constrictive. Not all the rules are aligned with what a parents home practices may be. Keep this in mind as they are not 'bad' just restrictive. Limited resources - no extracurricular activities. Interesting academics - such as micro society.
Excellent school for those that want a smaller classroom environment. As with most Charter Schools there are limiited resources, bussing, lunches, after school activities. Please take that into consideration. Couple of unique programs at this school including Micro Society. Very inventive and intersting to the children. Teacher range from average to outstanding. Head staff is at the outstanding end. Very caring and passionate about their school.
Great teachers and support staff. Wish extracurricular activities were offered!
The staff is wonderful. Academics are first rate. The school would benefit from some type of sports activities for the older kids, however.
My son loves going to this school! He has many friends and is learning so much. The work challenges him and the teachers are so helpful! I really like the friendliness of all of the teachers and other staff. They make me feel welcome whenever I visit school or just call on the phone, plus I know my son is in good hands with people who really care about him.
Stepping Stones Academy is awesome! My daughter was very apprehensive about entering an extremly large, overcrowded new school, then we heard about S.S.A. The staff, administration and the students welcomed our family and treated us as if we were 'family'! My daughter has felt safe, gained self esteem and progressed in all her academic classes! The friendly, energic, knowledgeable staff definitely strives to go that extra mile, with each and every student. Our family is looking forward to another great year at Stepping Stones Academy!
Stepping Stones Academy pushes kids too hard. Even the homework in kindergarten is astounding. The principals are unwilling to listen and the teachers are too strict, overbearing, and even grouchy and definitely nit-picky. I could make a list a thousand words long! Everything is one-sided. A group of parents speaking on an issue makes no difference to these educators. My child hated going to school every day. It was a fight to get him to go. Once I changed schools, his outlook on schooling completely changed. He is actually beginning to learn in his new, upbeat, challenging environment.
This school has had many problems that have been brought up by many parents (example: inapporopirate discipline, sexual discrimination) The directors of this school are fast talkers and talk their way out of actually dealing with parents concerns or problems...Their philosophy of only good kids need to learn unacceptable to me and my family has been removed from this school, due to this and many other issues.
Having my child in this school has been a wonderful experience for me. I have been amazed at the academic progress my son has made. This school is more like an extended family. All of the schools staff and teachers know every child by name and even their parents too! The MicroSociety and Character Counts programs are teaching my son skills that will be so critical for success later in life.
The school is committed to creating responsible children. Their dedication goes beyond their expected responsibilities. They are always striving to improve. Keep it up.
