Absolutely fantastic! In my opinion, some of the hardest working teachers in West Sacramento!! Go Lions!!!
Some teachers spend whole periods goofing off with the classes. Some teachers provide information that is simply wrong, use the class for a soapbox for bizarre world views on controversial subjects, and show horrific movies with often foul language. The school is locked down, not open after school to play, and few activities. Principles yell at older siblings waiting across the street to pick up kids. Police search bags of all students when a phone is stolen, violating rights without even informing parents. Parents must sign many meaningless papers each week and give teachers personal information. Students don't learn how to write cursive. The dress code with colors prohibited is intended to deter gangs - of K-8 students? The security alarm code is discussed loudly for all to hear in the front office. The list of problems and mis-administration goes on and on. Stonegate compares very unfavorably to other schools seen in Yolo County. On initial view it looked OK but after giving it time we are very sorry to have no real alternatives. Parent involvement is a relatively high point.
Before my son started to attending this school last year, I did my homework and researched the test scores, attendance records, student body size, and current and future plans for the school. My husband and I met with the principal and found him to be open to dialogue and feedback from parents. We are both very pleased with the school so far, understanding that this is our son's first year there, and opinion's can change. The principal and vice-principal are actively engaged with the students and the parents. All the student's are used to seeing them regularly out on campus, and in the classroom. I have only wonderful things to say regarding my son's kindergarten teacher as well. Also, the principal and vice-principal hold a monthly principal-parent coffee to discuss concerns, and upcoming issues and new things occurring regarding the school. We feel very good about having chosen this school for our child.
My children have attended this school for several years and have had good experiences. The test scores keep rising for the school, which shows they are doing something right. My children continue to learn and be challenged. Thanks Stonegate.
5-stars is not a high enough rating. The new superintendent and principal to the teachers and even cafeterians are concerned with each student individually, academically, and personally. My son's teacher stays after school to give him personalized tutoring. There is simply no better faculty at ANY school--public or private alike. My son has been in both, and this public institution out paces his $3000/month private school by light years. 5-stars times an order of 10 would be closer to describing how great this school really is!
Kindergarten has been the best experience. So far impressed with the new principal. Lots of parent involvement in the classroom, parents are always welcome. Class size is 20-21 kids. We've been very pleasantly surprised. I hope 1st grade is great too!
I love Stonegate. the teachers and staff are wonderful and the yard duty's are grate they seem to love what they do. keep up the good work.
I love stonegate elementary; for me and my family this is a great school
I am not completely satisfied. I feel there is alot of unsupervised time at lunch and recess. The yard duties seem annoyed with thier jobs.
I love Stonegate. This is my daughters second year. She has Mr. Perrine for 5th grade. He is amazing as are the rest of the staff. She is loving learning and achieving beyond what seemed to be her believed potential (by teachers in previous schools). I always knew how special she is and that she could reach the stars. What a difference it makes when her educators believe that also. We are happy and impressed. Keep up all the good work Stonegate staff.
This school has been the best change for my 2 sons. They have advanced over the last year. The teachers are amazing and yes they seem to like thier job. My oldest son which is now in the 4th grade has been behind his since he entered school. Now he's on level and is pround of himself, (thanks to Ms. Hackbarth)! We appriciate this school!
I have 2 children that attend this school. I am NOT very impressed to say the least. This school seems very much unorganized, and does not match up to the other schools in the same area. I do understand this is a brand new school, but this is NOT a brand new principal and the teachers also have years of experience.
My child is a fifth grade student at Stonegate. I am very pleased and impressed with the growth my child has made at Stonegate.
