My child has been there for a couple years and I have yet to understand how exactly the International Baccaluareate program and international mindedness translates into the class material. There are no programs such as student council, science fairs, plays/ music/ theater, but there is a band that I have never heard perform. Teachers do not seem as involved in the schools activities and staff seems unhappy. Something seems to be changing. The principal seems nice.

I graduated Stowers Elementary back in 2010. Unfortunately, I do not have any interactions with Mr. Tracy, and quite a few of the teachers I've had have now retired, however, they're a few great and not so great teachers there. Mrs. Kamiyama(1) is an excellant teacher. I myself have never had her, but she offered me support when others didn't. Mrs. North(3), Mrs. Graham(K), Mr. Soto, and Mr. Ives, are all great teachers. A not-so great teacher would be Mrs. Walrath. She is constantly on her phone and gets students to teach for her when something is "too hard" to understand for herself. Another great person to know on campus would be Mr. Zaragoza a.k.a Mr. Z. He is the school's librarian. He will be one of the most funniest guys you'll meet and is very friendly towards students and parents. I highly recommend you meet him! Furthermore, Stowers Daycare program is somewhat decent for those who aren't able to pick up your kid(s) right after school. Mrs. Maria is an excellent daycare teacher who has been there helping since I was in kindergarten(2004). Academic wise, it's somewhat a challenge if you get a crummy teacher and social science you won't really use. I hope this helped!1/3/13

Oct 25 post, I agree with Oct 26 post. Definitely voice your concerns with the Principal. I too just transfered my kids to this school this year and the transition hasn't been easy on my kids, but the teachers and Principal have been very supportive and communicate all concerns right away. I am very happy with this school (I'm just not happy with my commute, 13 miles each way per day).

I am so sorry that you got a "lemon." As with any school or district, some teachers are better than others. Even if I did not agree with a teacher's methods, my children always learned what was needed. I would recommend voicing your concerns to the Principal. In my experience, he is very quick to listen and take action as needed.

My child currently is a student in one of the primary grades. I am very happy with the school. We transferred in from another school district after much research. I have only heard and read great things about this school. I must admit that we got a lemon. Unfortunately, my child's teacher does not teach by interacting with the students. From one position she teaches the class. Rarely do they answer questions or read together out loud. There are many other concerns but you should know that unfortunately there is one that you don't want your child to have. She is not concerned with the higher standards exemplified by other classrooms.

Stowers is a fantastic school!! My kids have attended since kindergarten and I have to say it is a great school and fun. Dr. Tracy is a wonderful asset and brings a kind but assertive attitude that we needed and the school has prospered and flourished since he started. The teachers are great and kids leave with a happy smile each day I pick mine up. What I have seen also is that parents get involved and there is always a good turnout for the many events. Scholastically, we've had numerous students that scored a PERFECT on the STAR/CST and one of our students won the county Spelling Bee and is moving on to State. Stowers is a very well rounded school and I am more than proud and happy my kids are attending here. Go Snow Leopards!!

I was a student at Stowers and i think the school is great i am currently in 11th grade i was in Stowers frm k-6. I had Mrs. Graham in (K) and Mrs. Kamiyama. They are both great teachers but the teacher I liked the most was Mrs. Davis she is the best teacher ever! She taught performing arts and other subjects i was in Choir for about 2 or 3 years for mrs.davis it was great. I hope Mrs.Davis is still at Stowers i would like to go visit her. Does anyone know if she is still at stowers?

My son entered Kindergarten this year at Stowers. It is a great school, challenging academically and organize. I love all the office staff, they are very efficient, they are nice, and the communication with students and parents is excellent. I specially would recognize the work that Sally Martinez, one of the secretaries, does. The principal Ms. Blagden is also outstanding. You will see her around the campus working and helping and she is very accessible to parents. Teachers work hard with you and communicate constantly to make your child succeed (at least Mr. Kirby, my son s teacher, but I heard good comments from other teachers aswell). Parents are welcome at the school to volunteer or visit. Finally the PTA works very hard to provide the kids with all they need for a successful academic year, from computers and school supplies to educational fieldtrips and fun events for the kids.

As a whole the teaching staff is the greatest hands down! This has been a tough transition year into a Magnet status school and with all the changes they have had to endure audits,seminars,endless meetings and training- they have been truly amazing! Much can be said for the awesome Magnet coordinator, Mrs.Garcia. I believe without her they would not have made as smooth a transition as they have. She should be the Principal! Things are looking up for Stowers, thanks to the great staff and its dedicated volunteers.

Like most schools on the North End of the ABC Unified, most students are on task with a lot of extra 'after school' professional support. It is not surprising that this school maintains a reputable API index, but compared to it 'Blue Ribbon' counterpart, just across the street, it is difficult to understand the gap. Among some of the great dedicated teachers are, Mrs. Graham in (K), Mrs. Kamiyama in (1st). Overall, the school is safe and solid for a child's initiation to the education system that they need to prepare for.

This was my childs first year at Stowers and what a wonderful experience we had! Mrs. Kamiyama is one of the best teachers I have ever seen!! Keep up the good work!!!

At Stowers, there are some very good and dedicated teachers and there are some that you prefer not to have as your child's teacher. Unfortunately, I get one of those this year. I came to her for a progress check on my son and she was not very open and helpful in ways that I could help my son at home. All I heard is the negativity about him and not much on what I can do to improve him academically. I have not noticed much caring and strong leadership from the principal.

The principal, Mrs. Blagden, is awesome. She gives a patient hearing to parent's concerns. Some of the teachers can really learn from other great teachers. I really wish they have a separate teacher for performing arts or have Mrs. Davis who is an excellent teacher just dedicate herself to performing arts. She gets stretched between language and music classes and as a result one of her classes suffers. Also, there should be no combo class for any grades highter than 3rd. Older kids definitely need to be in a classroom with other challanging kids of their own level. Mrs. McNutt, Mrs. Parsanage are great teachers. I do wish more of science curriculum is taught in 5th grade . Too much attention goes to kids who are not keeping good grades and as a result the kids who can take up challanging work suffer.

My child has attended Stowers throughout his elementary school years. I have seen the school take a tremendous leap in the wrong direction over the past few years. There is obvious friction between the principal and the staff. I often wondered what they were taught at school with so much homework coming home with my child. Thank goodness for the teachers and volunteers they do have especially the few that provide the students with other activities aside from the basics. I have been incredibly disappointed over the past few years and am somewhat relieved that my child is moving on to another environment.

What I love most about Stowers is the dedication of the teachers and their willingness to work with parents to increase their children's school performance.

This school is severely lacking in many areas. There is not enough parent participation, there is not a strong sense of belonging in the kids. There is no excitement to learn here. It is all about the numbers....those test scores are where it is at here. Don't expect great things. It took my son 3 1/2 years to make one good friend; there are no children in the neighborhoods playing. They are all doing the mountains of homework.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.
