This school is amazing by far. The staff is very nice. My don loves it.
I am a l-o-n-g-t-i-m-e parent at this school... where do I begin!?!? Administration has ALWAYS cared for families and students, not to mention his staff. There is a wonderful environment at this school and I love attending family functions created by PTA. I wish more parents would take the time to share these wonderful years at their child's school. All my children (4) have had great teachers and experiences at Stirling and they will have a lifetime of memorable stories to share for the rest of their lives.
I just found this site and I'm SO excited to share my kids' amazing school with everyone! My oldest daughter is in the 5th grade so this is our 6th year at Stirling Elementary. We have had nothing but OUTSTANDING teachers every year. My daughter scored at the highest level on the FCAT (state standardized test)... no doubt she's getting a great education. Both of my daughters have had teachers that are compassionate and caring while preparing them for the next grade level. I'm so lucky that this school is right around the corner. Sometimes the best things are in your backyard!!
This school is horrible. My daughter is in the first grade and the teacher she was put with in he beginning of the year taught P.E. the year before and did nothing but yell condensingly at the kids! I moved her to a fabulous teacher who actually wanted and enjoyed teaching. However the school being short handed with teachers felt it would be ok to make this teacher teach a class of 1st and 2nd graders. So they moved my daughter with no warning to yet another class! This teacher doesnt yell however I do not think that this is the career she wants. As she doesn't have the patience that is needed for 1st graders. The administration is also lacking as the principal is sick so is never there to make sure they are doing their job. I am taking my daughter out of this school at the end of this school year and never looking back!
Stirling Elementary is voted, by all parents we know, for the best school because of the 'family' & safe atmosphere, the teachers qualification & care.
I rate this school a 7 as it has dropped from a couple of years ago. Mr. Dobronz is a wonderful principle however he can't be in a million places at once. The safety of kids has dropped. The teachers are wonderful however there are a few that I feel talk at the students. Each teacher has their own quality of teaching
My granddaughter just finished kindergarten and she is so advanced in all her skills. She can read on a third grade level thanks to the 5th graders coming and teaching them how to read through the wonderful programs there. She also learned to play the violin and now they are cutting the misic program what a shame.
I had just moved from China and knew literally, no English at all. This school was definitely the base of all my knowledge; it helped me understand and feel welcome in this state. Overall, this school gives students enough room to learn and shine in their own special way. I'm so glad I attended this school; I have many, MANY great memories of this school. :)
My son has been attending this school since kindergarten. The teachers my son has had were very good and seemed like they genuinely cared about the students.
When I attended this school it was great. The teachers were wonderful. The school was clean. I have nothing but fond memories of it. And since then they have completly rebuilt it so I can't imagine how great it is now.
I have 2 children in Stirling Elementary and we have had a wonderful experience there. The teachers we have had so far have been completely involved in letting how well our child is or is not doing in a particular area. They take great pride in putting the childrens education first.
The ptsa is always encouraging different contests for the students. Such as essay writting, drawings & they are entered into contest & winners are judged at county level if selected. The ptsa encourages students to be involved & their opinion counts. Shows leadership in the youth. They have an excellent tutoring program & the school this year is a title 1 school which also helps parents learn ways to be active in your childs education & ways to help them achieve their dreams.The school environment is a wonderful family environment. The principle has an open door policy. The school is 250% their for you & your childs needs.The staff at Stirling elementary is very supportive & they give alot of support to every one needs.
The quality of academic programs is not great. If the parents don't help their child, that child is bound to fail. The FCAT needs to be taken out of school. It's not worth the students taking the test when they're not being taught correctly to be prepare for it.
Mrs. Levy is an amazing teacher! She has taught my daughter to love reading for both knowledge and enjoyment. She truly cares about her students, and puts their education on the top of her priority list. She deserves to be recognized!
Stirling Elementary is a top rated school with wonderful staff. My daughter has been there for her entire elementary education, and I have never had any complaints. They spend time, and really teach.
I think that this school overall is a good school. My son has really enjoyed going to this school and has liked majority of his teachers.
My daughter has been at this school since kindergarten, and she is now in 5th grade. I have heard so many horror stories from friends about their children's school, but I have none. This has been the most wonderful experience, and the teachers have all been great. I give this school my highest recommendations.
Have been very pleased with the concern of the teachers for the students. My children are receiving a quality education.
