in response to this post am very unimpressed to say the least with the behavior of the staff and leadership. There is a huge decline in respect shown to the kids. Discipline is being handed out without personal knowledge of what event has taken place....a so called guilty until proven innocent. If you confront the teacher or office staff, your child will then be handed a notice of excessive tardiness/absences regardless of their good record. I have had other kids in this school in the past and never experienced anything like this. Submitted by a parent" Yes, I agree 100% with this post. I use tobe a huge supporter of this school. Im glad my child will not be there next year. The traffic has gotten out of control since MRs. Rose has taken over. There is a grey haired proctor that treats the kids like they are in jail. She pounds on everyones car window. She is very dramatic. They need to let her go. Mrs. Rose needs to get it together. My child needed help on her weakest subject and the teachers said there is tutoring by high school students available fro a small fee. What ever happened to after school help from teachers?? It wasnt like this when Mrs Early was there
My Son and Daughter attend Stork Elementary, I could not be happier with all of the teachers they have had, as well as Mrs. Rose the school principal. I highly recommend this school, because of the test score grades, as well as the staff, and all that my children have learned!
I am so glad both of my children went through Stork. When my husband and I were looking for houses in the area, we made it a big deal to choose the right schools, and I'm glad to say the Stork has been an amazing experience. Both of my kids went from K-6, and I truly believe Stork has given them not only the thorough education they need, but has also provided the little things that matter. Stork has P.E., Band, arts, and many other programs that have made my children's elementary experience great. The staff is so diligent and caring, and the test scores, API, etc.. are among the best.
Wow!Really some of these reviews.are just too much some express themselves on vehicles driven by parents really?its a review on the school not on a cars that some parents drive apparently to some parents is important.what a snotty comment as to the rest of the comments on the review overall on the school staff members and attendees I appreciated.
This is my daughters first year at Stork & I am very impressed with the school overall; even more impressed with the teaching techniques, the school work, homework & curriculum. My daughter has learned a whole lot in the time she has been attending this school, and she absolutely loves her teacher(wonderful lady) and looks forward to attending school each and everyday. I also, love the fact that the parents, teachers & staff work hand & hand to insure a great quality education & environment for the children.
The previous post is just rediculous in reguards to what car people are driving to the school. That is kinda of embarrising to the rest of us who attend school there and value a good education. This is not representative of the norm at Stork. My two came from a private education and thought we would try Stork and figured we could always go back to private if need. What an amzaing surprise both kids started k and now are in the 4th and 6th. We just love love love this school: including support staff, teachers, principal, and most of the parents. Parent partisipation is huge is this school and I find that to be the key.
Based on my findings so far, Stork is a great school, I will give you that, but after reading the review below, I am having serious doubts. "Nice teachers speaking real American English?" While other parents are concerned about the diversity and quality of their children's education, you ONLY cared about accent? "parents are driving Mercedes,Lexus and very polite to each other?" Mercedes, Lexus? Did you even graduate from high school? If you are a a typical Stork parent, I wouldn't send my kid there.

Great school environment like a park up of the hill. Nice teachers speaking real American English .Top top API in the county . Homes around are pretty good class as well as parents are driving Mercedes,Lexus and very polite to each other.
I believe Stork School is a terrific school. From K1 through 6th (my son is now in 6th) he has consistently had dedicated teachers, great staff and a very warm and safe environment.
Parental involvement is very strong. The teachers have been here for a long time. There is a very strong PFSA which has lots of activities and helps raise money for computers and other class room needs.
The Principal takes a 'hands on' approach to managing the school that really pays off in the classroom. Teachers are very involved and are accessible to the parents. I would recommend Stork School to anyone.
Teachers are very involved in communicating with parents. The administration is wonderful to deal with. I have had two students in Stork. One with discipline issues the other an A student. Both students were cared about equally and assistance provided to meet their needs.
I have six children. Four have already gone through Stork, and two are current students. This is without a doubt one of the best elementary schools I have come across. The teachers have such dedication to thier students. It is clear that your child is not just a name or file number. Indeed everyone who works at the school, in any position, is there because they want to be. They are all great with the children. The extracurricular activities are phenominal. The volunteers at this school go above and beyond. Most are parents, grandparents, and family. However, some are not actually related to students, they just enjoy helping. You couldn't ask for a better head start for our children!
It is a great school with highly qualified professional teachers apropriate modifications and aids provided for students with exeptionalities There is excelent parent teacher communication info is provided always parent involvent highly encouraged
This school is okay with me. It provides a great learning enviroment and great lunches. They work the kids to their best. But I would have to say that the outside enviroment could be a bit more friendly.
Stork is a out standing school in a very nice area. All of the staff are geared to making sure your child learns academic : 3r's at his best ablity, plus it offers a well rounded education;with art, music, field trips and sports.
Stork Elementary is a quality school and even though it is overgrown in size, it still has a small town atmosphere. The community spirit is second to none! Parent involvement is unbelievable and it really shows! About the only negative thing we have found is that there are a few teachers that have been there forever that are ready for retirement that should be avoided. They have excellent resource and GATE programs that meet the needs of children at all levels. It is a very well run school where children are taught to act respectful of adults as well as each other. My children have attended this school for the past 9 years and we have two more years to go. I would recommend moving to our area just to attend this school. The Jr. High is equally as wonderful!
Wonderful learning environment! Teachers take learning seriously and it shows. Great interaction between kids and teachers; also between teachers and parents. Parent involvement is awesome.
