I am very pleased with the amount of caring teachers and staff at this school! It is very clean and organized. We have the best kindergarten teacher! She is very patient, caring, and intelligent. The way she handles the kids is excellent! We are so very lucky to have our daughter with a teacher like her! We look forward to the upcoming years at Stanton and hope they are as great as this first one!

My daughter attends Stanton, she's in kindergarten. It's a great school with an amazing staff. My daughter has two teachers who are so warm, caring and patient. I've had the pleasure of volunteering in their class. I honestly believe our teachers are so underpaid for what they accomplish with our kids. I look forward to next year at Stanton.

Teachers at this school ALL very professional and obviously care about the students. Our 2nd grade grandson was reading starting in kindergarten as well as our granddaughter is now in her kindergarten class. We believe principal is very dedicated in her quest to lead a school to educate her students. If any improvement would be considered is particpation by parents. It was a close call in not having a PTA as a president was needed and for awhile no one wanted the difficult job. But it was filled and we believe it will continue to be a strong and supported PTA. Soar Eagles!

In my 12 years as a parent of two daughters at Stanton, the school has come a long way in state scores, in innovative ways of teaching and in a strong philosophy from principal to janitor on being college focused. I'm not seeing the excessive bullying mentioned by other parents but there must be an absolute zero tolerance, daily for bullying at Stanton. I deeply appreciate the No Excuses program that prepares ALL students with the mental drive and the opportunity to enter college. How to improve at Stanton? I suggest you, the parent: 1) get your child to school on time 100% of the itme, 2) gift your child with 10-11 hours of sleep every night (so if up at 7:00 a.m. that means bed at least 9:00 p.m.), 3) commit yourself to help your child with homework Mon-Thurs for at least an hour day/night or at least check homework and fix it together, 4) make a rule that all homework is done by a certain time (7:00, 8:00) followed by up to one hour of family (that means you too) reading time, 5) then bed time routine. Do it!

Not a great sign when the TK teacher repeatedly tells you that this is her first time teaching children below 3rd grade. Sends home supposedly important paperwork stuffed into my son's backpack with his schoolwork and it's easy to miss.

New administrator at this school is trying too hard to put a show on "Look what I am doing for the kids!". But not really for the kids... There are several good teachers on that site. But I witness some "not getting along" moments amongst the teachers as well as the office staff talking inappropriate topics amongst themselves while parents are standing and waiting for assistance. There are also bullies in the school. The school does assemblies on the topic but I see no progress. Some kids there are flat out mean and vicious.

I find the administration to be very helpful and friendly, which is usually my complaint with previous schools my child has attended. Some of the teachers are very good. Others can't think out of the box at all. The biggest issue for me is the environment. Too many kids at very young ages swearing and using terrible language. You can overhear some of the parents using this language as well (which is surely where they get it). Of course it is not allowed, but there are not enough people supervising to monitor it. I will be removing my child from this school right away as the behavior gets worse the older my child gets. Car pick up is also rediculous. There is no order to it whatsoever.

Alot of bullies at this school. The office staff loves to gossip. Great 3rd grade teachers but they need to monitor and repremand the bullies in this school.

Stanton School of Glendora has a pool of very knowledgeable and caring teachers. I rememer having attended a Day for Grandparents about 3-4 years ago and found that the quality of education and development of students attitudes/personality are adequately attended to by the teachers. They encourage mediocre students to excel and in many instances, these students became Student of the Month. Also, the GATE Program of the school is commendable. Keep up the good work!

I don't have a child at this school, but I was a student there many years ago. I am just glad to see that the school is still around and doing well. That is all I wanted to say. Thank you for your time.

I feel like my children are receiving a private school education, without the tuition! The office staff is always willing to help, and the Principal is very accessible. The teachers are very kind, knowledgeable and strive for higher learning from their students. The GATE program is excellent, and very beneficial. The PTA is the friendliest I've met. No cliques here!
