Over the past few years Stagg was a horrible school when it came to academics. Principals were weak as well as administration. However, since we've adopted Principal Bill Parks, the school has gotten immensely better. We're working hard to keep simple, but important things such as attendance up. The electives and SLC's are really great especially the Journalism Academy. Their newspaper is very very VERY good and I recommend enrolling your child here for great college opportunities. It is important that parents get involved more to make this happen, however. Teachers are great especially the new addition of counselors. In time, this school will turn around.
My son is a freshman and went from a C student to an A student. He loves school, his teachers are wonderful and very helpful. Can't say enough great things about what they are doing for the kids and helping them to succeed.
Stagg is one of the better schools in Stockton Unified. As a recent alumni, I've never had a major problem with administration, staff nor students. I was highly active within the honors and AP classes as well as focusing on my yearbook duties. The only problem is the rules are getting strict due to the lousy change of administration. Also, they need to have student evaluations of the teachers because some staff members are incapable of meeting the needs of students. Overall, I had a memorable four years at Stagg High and would not trade it for any other high school around.
Overall, the school produces decent persons of society. Unfortunately, the college survival rate of former students is not high, but the parental involvement in after school activities IS stronger than most of the other schools in the district.
