John B. Stanton School1

Indeed some teachers and staff are wonderful and dedicated, however I believe some should take a sabbatical for new and innovating educational training. Moreover, the appearance of Stanton B. Elementary is depressing, gloomy and the building is so old it more than likely has some safety violations. Furthermore, class rooms are so overcrowded, learning materials are out dated, and their computers are so old I cannot imagine they really work. I don t want to forget to mention their nutritional program; however, I want to make it very clear that the staff works as hard as they can and makes the best with what they have to work with! The board of education should be ashamed for allowing this to continue. Stanton has failed more than once the state mandated test required for all Connecticut schools. As a result, Stanton has to hire out private agencies to tutor our children, however, only students who receive food stamps! SHAME, SHAME
They try hard. they got low rating with the federal government. as a parent this is a concern. the teachers so far, my children have had, have been good! you have to flight tooth and nail though to get help for learning disabilities help. this is a major concern for me.
Staton is a wonderful school that stresses parental involvement. The teachers are kind and caring but firm when they need to be. There could be more afterschool activity but being gradeschool it's hard to get support for it. The quality and care that Stanton students get is fantastic.
