Absolutely hands down one of the best elementary schools I've been involved with. The teachers there actually care about each other and the community, and most importantly the students. They actually get along with each other and help each other to perform and teach the best they can. They make it fun for the kids to learn. My kids have both told me that they'd rather stay in school through the summer rather than have a summer vacation! Who says that?! Rick Bowles and the staff at Ivy Stockwell including the PTO members and even down to the maintenance crew (Trilby is awesome!) really, truly care about the kids there. I'm so proud to be part of this community and school, and wouldn't have my kids go anywhere else.

I don't believe this is just Ivy Stockwell, but most schools in general. Yes, we need to teach and learn our kids. Yes, we need to prepare them for the future. However, we need to find a way to be able to do this in the 8 hours that they have at school and allow them the time they need to decompress and develop outside of school socially, etc.

Amount of homework: Too much

Unfortunately, the homework given is not entirely the fault of Ivy's teachers as that is the new culture to continue giving more homework since they don't have time to fit everything into the school day with all of the new educational requirements. That is unless they start taking away music, PE, recess which is a definitely no.

We love Ivy - the teachers, staff and administrators truly care about every child. The testing scores are excellent, but what matters most is that my children love to learn, and love to go to school.

My child just finished a year in the All-Day Kindergarten class. The cost was $240/month. With this extended day/curriculum, my child received classes in Music, Computer Lab, Art, and P.E. At the end of the school year they took a Field Trip to the Butterfly Pavillion in Broomfield, CO. There is a Field Day at the end of the school year for all grades. If I had to give an adjective to describe this school, I would say 'conservative'. Overall, I'm pleased with the school. My child ended the year being able to read and write and will be ready for 1st grade in the Fall of 2007. The teachers are excellent, some holding Masters Degrees.

We have been at Ivy Stockwell just two years now and it has been great. The all day Kindergarten is one I would recommend to anyone. The cost is well worth it! Betsy Porter is not only an excellent teacher but she cares about the children as if they were her own. The foundation for learning she lays down is amazing. The school as a whole shows an interest in children and their learning experience. The only drawback is the lack of allowing the children to be individuals at times. They do not allow birthdays to be recognized and teach about many different cultures during the holidays but seem to lessen Christmas in order to try to keep things neutral. Discipline at Ivy sometimes goes a little past where many parents think it should. Pink slips are handed out for things like talking to loud and skipping in the hallway.

We have moved quite often and my daughter has attended several elementaries. She was only in Ivy a short time, but it is the experience we judge all other schools by. She was welcomed by all the staff and students. She was excited about learning and came home anxious to share what she was studying with me. The atmosphere in the school promoted a confidence in her academic abilities that she has not had in other schools. I can not express how much I appreciate the time she was able to spend at Ivy. I was amazed when I researched and found that the best school we have encountered spends $2,000 LESS per student anually than any other school my daughter has attended. Clearly, money isn't all that matters in good education. The district, and especially the staff of Ivy Stockwell should be commended on what they are accomplishing.
