I wanted to indicate in this review specifically Mrs. Cummings Kim, 1st grader teach. Mrs. Cummings is what I call a teacher for life, a real educator. She comes every day to class for the children, she cares for their education, well being, got to know each chid with her/his needs. Mrs. Cummings knows how to motivate them as individuals and as a team.

Starting this year my son started going to Stocklmeir school and is in second grade. It has been an incredibly positive experience for us and our son, because he is suddenly so focused in his education and is so motivated to put lot of hard work without any push from me. I would credit his class teacher Ms. Roberts for the encouragement and channeling him in the right direction! I would highly recommend this school.

Through out the years with my kids in Stocklmeir I had seen teachers that have been tired from teaching. They become indiferent. One of those teachers done damage to my daughter's desire to study. And good teachers, especially male teachers are lacking.

My first grader had a wonderful teacher this year. He is kind, patient and knowledgeable. He also encouraged the kids to learn through technology and it turned out to be quite fun and efficient. Each kid received a class book with all the good memories throughout the year. We feel blessed to have had such an awesome teacher.

One parent asked why this school is in Sunnyvale, but is in the Cupertino School District...it depends on where a person lives in Sunnyvale that dictates the district. My daughter is in first grade here and has been going here since Kindergarten. I love both of her teachers so far. Some of the class kids that are disruptive are dealt with fairly and immediately. I for one am very happy about that. My daughter shouldn't be sidetracked by someone else's kid if they're disrupting the classroom. Anyhow, we pay the property taxes and live in the area, so it works out that our home school is an excellent one.

Ok for some - unacceptable for others. Stocklmeir appears to have solid teachers and a well run program but quickly identifies children that needs extra help (or might bring their scores down) and attempts to "encourage" them out of the school. Cupertino district has a reputation for great test scores but it's because they make it nearly impossible for a kids with even minor learning challenges to want to be there. We didn't want to believe this reputation but unfortunately found it to be all too true. As soon as our student was identified with special needs, they quickly scrutinized her every move and she spent more time in the principals office then in class for the most minor of issues. We got the message.

This school, like all the other Cupertino Union Schools, teaches to standardized tests. Unfortunately, it's school with approx. 1000 students. Principal is very good (albeit stretched). Teacher quality...very good. Parent involvement: the PTA tends to be a ladies club run mostly by Asian moms.

Great school, very nice teachers & friendly environment. You feel safe to leave your kids here. I strongly recommend this school for any parents who wants to live in Sunnyvale & send kids to Cupertino schools.

why does this school show up in "sunnyvale" but it's part of the cupertino school district, and why does the sunnyvale school district have such a low overall school (7)? Seems like it should be higher? Is this school a factor in the Cupertino (10) score or the Sunnyvale (7) score?

I think that this school rocks. The PTA works alot to help the school improve, and the combination classes actualy help students become friendlier with other grades(not bossing the other grade around just because your older than them). Over all I thnk I would give this school 5 stars.

20-30% parents are very active PTA, the rest just are riding along... Great school despite the size. But beware if you are think about just moving here for the school, look at your own child very carefully. If the school board voted for the new propose budget a ratio of 30 students to one teacher starting from 1st grade may not be for every child. It's a lot easier for a child to fall 'through the crack' then you think.

It's a great, diverse environment for the kids. Lot of new staff in lower grades this year, so have to wait and watch how this year is going to be, but from 3rd grade onwards homework/projects and teaching methods are fairly standard. Principal is great and handles very well what is probably the largest elementary school in CUSD. PTA is very active, so there's plenty of opportunity for parents to get involved in every aspect of their child's school life. More good quality after school programs & a CDC that is proportional to school size would be great.

Considering that this is one of the largest (if not the largest) school, the staff and PTA do a great job of providing the best learning environment. There are inconsistencies in teacher quality upto grade 3, at which point, everything from homework to projects etc. get standardized. It would be better if such a standardization is implemented from the kindergarten level. Also, many parents seem to be unaware of how much the PTA contributes to their children's school experience from assemblies, to music & art classes. More parental involvement would do much good to this school.

Lovely school! Parents' involvement is necessary, as in any other school, if you want your child to succeed. PTA is doing a great job of bringing fun into education and Principal is great!

A fine school on road to recovery thanks to excellent new leadership team in 2007-8. New Principal and Asst. Principal put students back in spotlight: balance needs of staff/parents. Dedicated, talented teachers outweigh weaker links. (yes, there are some staff issues) Of much greater impact: Huge influx of new students has outpaced all resouces/taxed school character. Newcomers attracted by 'high API scores' would do well to remember that our students' test achievements are only one of many significant elements comprising school culture. Those with longterm investments in the school are't likely to be moved by the strong entitlement sentiments expressed by 'disappointed' newcomers in a few preceding comments. We've all paid a 'hefty price' -not only for property, but for exceeding Stocklmeir's capacity/resources. Those 'misled by high test scores' are victims only of assumptions based on their own limited focus...curious that reviewers who seem generally uninformed specifically praise

We are stuck with this school I should say. Bought a new home with hefty price for the high API score. But the quality of education is inferior to Laurelwood school in Santa Clara my child was attending his 2nd grade. Very disappointed with the school. Meeting with teachers seems to be waste - they shut our mouth by saying they are following the CUSD standard.

Don't be disappointed with the CUSD brand for this school. Though teaching is any school depend on individual teachers, the overall teaching standard adheres to meeting CUSD standards. Since most parents (from asian community) does the job of teachers at home, teachers do less at school. No homeworks, and class works mostly involve social and art works - this school feels like a daycare to me for upto 2nd grade my child had attended and my rating on this school from our experience. In addition, I hate the combo class setup on top of poor quality of education. PTA is great, but does not do much for the education. Your mileage may vary.

I agree with some of the parents here that there is a greater degree of inconsistency among teachers.Some are really good and some are very average.The PTA is really really good and one can see the progress the school has made.If the teachers can be get more work done from capable students,this is the best place for a student to be.So some areas of improvement are more homeworks for reinforcement and discipline, better challange in classroom.

This school is a big disappointment for our family! We were misled by the high score when we chose to move in the area. Teachers quality is very low! (my daughrer spent there 5 years and from the 5 teachers she had only one was satisfactory.) Quality of the academic programs is very low too. Basically parents are doing the teachers' job.

If you want a school that teaches to the tests this is the school for you. The good news is that the school is ethnically divirse, has a fine faculty and is supported by a fairly well off and educationally supportive community. However, I have never seen a school so focused on teaching to the test or that does so poor a job of individualizing instruction. Stocklmeir gets a very mixed grade from this parent.

A great school where the parents are actively involved both inside the classroom and on the outside. The teachers on the whole are supportive, understanding and caring. They are very willing to work with the parents. There is a good balance of work-load and other activities. We are very pleased with the school and its staff.

My daughter has been in Stocklmeir for the last 3 years and she has been very happy. The school as a community is tight-knit, activities are centered around the families. We've always felt very welcome and parent volunteers are much appreciated. Stocklmeir has made consistent, steady progress academically in our years here. The neighborhood itself is favorable and we have no plans of leaving.
