Staley is a great place to work. The family at Staley is what family should be in every home. The students are why we do what we do. The Principal/Asst/lead teacher leadership is second to NONE.

Im also concerned with who is actually sending in these reviews on the school ,because i have also seen some disturbing things since my child has been at staley.When the children came from Sarah cobb they were told of good things to come and they were let down.the principal does have a good idea of what he wants for his school but does not have the facilty to back him up. Also did not like the idea of spliting up children according to certain scores,we all know that some students do well all year and may fall behind on certain test that dosent mean they are lower in intellegence than other students.Sarah cobb students were taught to help other students stay on top not look at them like they are beneath oneanother.Really did Staley Middle think they were fooling some one when they said the children were not split according CRTCscores.
