Because is a magnet school, title I, great music program and teacher. The principle Mrs. Hernandez has an open door policy which I think is great!!!!
I think it is awesome an it makes lots of children become smarter and they give a really good education to all the children I think it is the best school in this world and e.w.f stirrup is out of this world. And I hope e.w.f stirrup elementary school wins the 20,000 dollars like that they can buy more supplies for the students. I LOVE E.W.F STIRRUP ELEMENTARY SCHOOL FOREVER.
My experience with the teachers and staff has been amazing.. The school has a lot of parent involvement which is a very positive thing for the children. and although school just started 2 and a half months ago my 5 year old son is already learning how to add, knows his letters and knows at least 10 site words. i actually put them in a sentence and he reads it. to some it may not be a big deal but my son hardly spoke till he was 4 so i am extremely proud and it is obvious that i have Stirrup teachers to thank for it.
Teachers, Faculty and Parents are extremely involved. The teachers are also excellent. They are completely focused on the students and their success.
I love E.W.F.Stirrup Elem. because my children receive excellent education, the staff cares for the children, the PTA works very hard, and the security officers are always alert.
the magnet programs is excellent,the teachers are very dedicated to their students and the music program and teacher is outstanding.They should find a way to pressure parents to get more involved into the voluntering programs.
This is a great school. My son's Kinder Teacher Ms Reveron was great and so far his 1st grade teachers have been awesome!
the principal Mrs, Hernandez is the best principal ever, I never was allow to contact the other principal, but she is a fantastic, entusiastic and kindly person, she always is there when I need her, her leadership help the staff work for the kids with the parents, most of the teachers are great, the school offer a lot of opportunities for the development of the kids, a lot of activiite and good program for the kids, I like this school. A+
Great all round school but could offer more opporunities for kids who need some sort of accelerated learning program.
good quality of academi programs. Music, art, sports are available. Midium level of parent involvement.
This is a great school. If your thinking of taking your child to this school you wont be sorry.
My two kids attend to Stirrup for the past two years. I am very pleased with the academic level of the school. As a matter of fact my child that is only in first grade writes and reads both languages (spanish and english) perfectly. I think we couldn't do it without the teacher's hard work during these two years. I am only a little concerned about the activities offer from the PTA. I think they are not desinged for parents that have to work full time. Kids that stay after school can not have the same preveligies than the ones that leave early but they are aware of these activities, such as 'pizza or pop corn day'. I would like to call the attention of this program so they can organize activities for all the kids even if they have to stay after school. Also PTA only sells the school T-shirts during business hours. I would like to have the time to participate in all the activities that the non working parents enjoy. Unfortenely I am a single mother and that is not an option. But at least I would like my kids to have the oportunity.
The principal of Stirrup, Mr. Thorpe,deserves the highest of praises for the superb work he is doing at the school. He is truly a leader's leader. He runs the school with both firmness and tenderness. His is a tight ship that sails smoothly.The children there are well-disciplined, respected, and happy. One could not ask for a better leader of children.
Compared to other schools around same area ex. Carlos Finaly (dual-learned school, with gifted or advance programs for children starting in 1st grade) Charles F. Hadley School ( saber- program, along with gifted ) just to name a few. E.F.W Stirrup has no type of academic or gifted programs for students, until they reach 4th grade or fifth , where the school does have a Magnet Program.. Why? Children ( who are advanced) are having their minds wasted for 3 or 4 years until they reach Magnet and that is only for Math and Science..(4th grade) If I keep mentioning schools ,( Ethel Koger Beckham, Bent Tree, Bowman Foster Ashe ect..) You will start to wonder why EFW Stirrup Elementary doesnt have any type of academic enhanced program for children, including mine, who are HOnor A1A students..Who implements the Gifted Or Advanced Programs??
