No the staff is too busy quarreling with the principal to develop life long skills in students.

Develops respect: Strongly disagree

There are some students who are respected and generally this occurs by the salary of the parents or the degrees the parent holds. Equity is a misnomer and impartiality runs rampant.

I strongly disagree that this school as a whole develops compassion and empathy for its students. There are moments where staff share concern for students, but it is highly divided and preoccupied with nonsensical issues that does not enhance student growth.

The leadership, well really the MANAGEMENT, is dishonest and fails daily at creating a space of integrity and fairness. I would describe this school as a place where educational malfeasance is committed against students every day.

This school is, well, I'll be honest, CRAZY. There is educational malpractice occurring everyday and it is absolutely atrocious. I wish the principal was a leader but there has been more leadership witnessed at McDonald's. If you are wise, you will find another school and avoid this one posthaste. Others share my view, and the community at large should be aware that children suffer in this environment.

Unless their is overwhelming parental involvement, after school activities are unsupported. The main emphasis seems to be on lifting up the lowest performing students, so that the AYP numbers look better. If your student is performing above average, or easily meets standards, they will be neglected by administration; understandably so, when you consider they do nothing for the score. They are already meeting expectations, so why bother spending any resources making sure they grow at a rate they should. Pitiful priorities, if you care about your child please select another school.

Stratton teachers and administrators share an unbounded commitment to the students and passion for their learning. The parents that are involved devote significant time and energy to the enrichment of all students, not just their own kids.

I believe this school is great due to the hard work of the teachers but especially the care of the adminstration. The social worker teachers our children valuable lessons and pushes into the classroom for school-wide social schools- I believe this only happens at Stratton--no other school in the district. I am pleased with the commitment and the hours the staff puts into their work and classroooms.

We are new to Stratton this year, but have found the teachers, staff, and students to be very welcoming! Stratton is probably the most culturally diverse of all Champaign Schools and there are multiple opportunities both at the school and on many fieldtrips to the Univ. of IL to explore racial/ethnic diversity. There are 4 self-contained gifted classrooms, a FT art teacher, a FT music teacher, a FT librarian (in a gorgeous school library), a FT enrichment specialist, and an impressive computer lab in a BEAUTIFUL new and well-appointed school. I'm impressed that the staff works hard to teach ALL students, especially low-income students who also test well.

This school is a very diverse school and it is very welcoming and homey if you are sending your child to an elementary school in unit4 and you would like it to be diverse I would highly reccomend Stratton.
