We came from abroad and my kids knew little English. After 6 months they became great and reached grade level and more.. The teachers are awesome and everyone in the administration was welcoming. I'm very grateful to Stallings for putting my kids on the right track. Honestly I will recommend this school, even if the test scores aren't encouraging.
I attended this elementary school from 2000-2006 and even though I don't remember exactly what I learned, I still remember that I had a wonderful time. I remember and recognize all the teachers that I have had and even teachers I haven't had. My years at this primary school had a great impact and it's great to see that many of my teachers are still working in this school. The teachers were--and still are-- extremely loving and they try their best to help students exceed. I recommend this school highly; please don't judge this school on test scores alone.
My child has gone to this school for 6 years and has done very well. As a parent, I made sure he did his work and put in the time to make sure he was where he needed to be. I noticed however that not many parents were putting in the time at home with their kids and then they turn around and blame the teachers. It takes the work of parents and teachers to work together and by doing this my child has done very well and gets high grades in all his work. It has worked for my child.
I am a parent of a student that goes to Stallings Elementary. My daughter has been going there since Kindergarten and is now going into 5th grade. The teachers are phenomenal! They truly do show they care about the students. It's really nice to all of the staff come together during a time when funds have been cut big time. They still find a way to show the kids a great time while still learning. Keep up the great work Stallings!
Stallings is a big disappointment. Not only is my son behind his grade level but I was forced to home-school him for a few moths so he would catch up to the other kids. Once I returned to Stallings I was reminded of what a horrible school it is. Most teachers are arrogant and demand the students to act as robots while they are doing badly academically. The Principal is a joke. If parents care for their children they should have the school board fire the Principal and demand for real leadership. I m thankful that CNUSD has other schools in the area that surpass Stallings in everyway.
My son went to grade 1 in this school. We had great great experience. I believe this was mainly due to his teacher Mrs. Redcliff Parez. She is an amazing teacher. We recently moved and our local school was changed to Foothill. I wish if mrs. Refdcliff was teaching grad 2 as well, in that case I would have done everything to keep my kid in the same school.

I live in the area just so my kids can attend this school. Though we may not have some of the funding that other schools have in CNUSD we have such dedicated staff. I now have a 2nd and 4th grader in this school and can not wait for my little one to start there as well.
I have a 5th and 3rd grader at this school. Both of which have attended since kindergarten. My 5th graders kindergarten teacher still remembers his name and mine as well, the teachers are great! Not too bad with hours and hours of homework. Some years are better than others with parent involvement. Boys seem to get repremanded for unacceptable behaviors more than the girls do even if they did the same thing as the boys. Principal and Vice Principal very responsive to parents and children.
I do not approve of this school. While it is okay if your child has no special needs, it does not meet the needs of children who have special needs. I have requested things in his plan in writing without any results. I cannot recommend this school.
This school has been a big disappointment. Starting with parent to teacher communication. Our seventh grader needs a tutor especially in reading, but unfortunately, they do not offer/suggest a better method of learning opportunities. Of course, we do our best at home, but it only makes sense to also try other methods in class which is where most of the learning takes place. The caliber of most of his teachers has been shockingly poor. One day I'm getting a bad report and literally, the next week, my son is getting an award. I can recommend it only in contrast to most of the other public schools
Provides a quality learning environment in an ethnically diverse setting. Teachers are committed to helping students and providing the necessaary interventation according to student need. Music and band is provided for upper grades 4-6.Grades K-3 provide music, art and P.E. within their self-contained classroom. Parent PTA is active and parent involvement is encouraged through meetings and other classes.
Stallings is a quaint school in Corona which is a luxury considering how crowded and impacted the other local schools are. The Administrative staff are excellent and are very enthusiatically involved with the children. The Vice-Principal greets the kids and helps them out of their cars every morning at the drop-off line and makes a point to call every child by name. The teachers are seasoned professionals and quite a few are bilingual to accomodate the children whose primary language is Spanish. The school facilties and playgrounds have recently been renovated with state of the art equipment. Stallings is a beautiful school and the children feel proud about their teachers and their campus.
Over all i think john stallings would be a much better school if the principal would not act like a drill sargent and pay more attention to our kids and staff. Alsoo i think the school district needs to pay more attention to what a wonderful job the vice principal is doing.If the principal would listen i think the teachers would be much happier and so would our kids.
My daughter has done well at Stallings. She excelled in every grade and she loved all her teachers. The new administration is a little too strict, which accounts for the low teacher morale and lower test results. The teachers are dedicated and loving.
Where do I even start? I have two children at Stallings. I love the kids, staff, and parents. I feel confident every morning I drop my kids off for school that they will be getting the best education in a safe enviroment! Even if their test scores are not the highest in the district, I think Stallings is the best! For my husband and I, there is more to being a good school than just test scores. As parents, we do what we can to help our kids at home. In our opinion, that is what makes the difference in the test scores. Being a part of Stallings is like being a part of one big happy family. Stallings staff, you are such a blessing! Thanks for everything!
