This is not a good place to send your children for a proper education. (Minority students)
Although my son received B grades at Standley I felt that there should be more homework. Additionally, teacher and vice principal contact was very difficult in ascertaining academic and behavior of my son. Sports are non-existent at Standley although the music and art programs were excellents
Standley is part of an involved community where the parents and teachers partner towards a common goal of quality education at the public school level. For example, the music program at Standley is top notch. The Standley advanced band has been the recipient of numerous awards. This would not be possible without the involvement of the community, teachers and parents.
I'm quite content regarding the decision I made to enroll my daughter at Standley. The partnerships I've established with her teachers assists me to keep the best interest of her education as a focal point.
My daughter has tried to meet with her counsler twice in three years, over problems with her class schedule or not being able to understand her math teacher. The Counsler and Vice Principal were not interested in helping her resolve any of her concerns, very upsetting when they stress to the kids to try and handle their problems themselves and be responsible. Seems like they rather face the children and use scare tatics then face the parents and explain themselves. The Vice Prinipal was very protective of the teachers and and had no concern for the studen, even though my child has carried a 4.0GPA for two years at the school.
I like the school, however, I never receive a return phone call when I have a concern. Perhaps someone could tell me the secret to communicating with these people.
Standley is an awesome school. I have enjoyed sending my daughter there for her 6th & 7th grade year, and I know her 8th grade year will be as wonderful. The leadership, teachers and coaches have shown exceptional concern for my childs educations. I highly recommend this school, I know it will help with my child's higher education.
