My daughter just finished up her first year of Kindergarten at Steeple Run. What a wonderful experience! Her teacher and staff did an amazing job. My daughter was able to go to a twice-a-week, on site enrichment program. Each week they had "Specials" - music, art, gym and library (I've heard school in other states have cut these things). She came out of the year reading chapter books, doing math, full of facts about Mexico (a special unit they did for a month) and just more confident in general. One of my biggest worries about the area was potential lack of diversity, but that wasn't a problem at all. Her class alone had students from India, Bangladesh, Ukraine, Japan, South Korea, and Libya. We are looking forward to 1st grade at Steele Run!
We have transferred here from out of state and our 2nd grader is loving it. After many disappointing experiences in the past this school's organized, focused methodology is greatly appreciated. I moved to this school district and choose this school because of the reputation. I can say that I made the right choice. Everyone is friendly and helpful and takes the extra step to make sure we have all the information and contact name and numbers we need. Not only are they taking great care of my child but as the parent I have been very happy too. Thank you Steeple Run.
I used to teach school out of state, plus I'm a mom of five children. In my experience, Steeple Run Elementary is exceptional. Dr. Scorzo was very good, but our current principal, Ms. Currier is phenomenal. Our staff and teachers are fabulous, and the parent involvement is amazing. One of my daughters is in the gifted magnet classroom and we are grateful this is held in our neighborhood school. She is having incredible experiences there. My other children are also receiving the education that is right for them and are having very positive experiences. I've enjoyed volunteering, and found such warmth for my whole family (even younger siblings who have tagged along as I've taken yearbook photos). When we've run across difficulties here and there I've always found the staff to be very reponsive and dedicated. I could not say enough good things about Steeple Run.
I have a son at Steeple Run and have dealt with teachers, the principal and assistant principal and have found the teachers and administrators of the school to be excellent and extremely dedicated. My wife and I (and our children) chose this neighborhood due to the excellent schools and we are extremely glad we did.
My daughter attended this school for 1st thru 5th. Dr. Scorzo was the principal during most of that time and I thought he did a great job running the school. More importantly, all my daughter's teachers (with the exception of her 3rd grade teacher) were absolutely tremendous.
Principal, Mr.Scorzo does a poor job running the school and managing the teachers. Overall a very disappointing school experience for my child.
Academically outstanding, great teachers, office staff is often abrupt.
Great school, superb staff and curriculum! Amazing level of parental involvement for all activities.
This school has been great. Our twins have been with SR, K-5. The staff, including teachers, not only listen to concerns but act on them, the results are always positive. From the janitor's friendly 'fixes' to the Principal's (including the new) participation in school events. Parent involvement is high, there is not a day that at least a half dozen parents are in the school volenteering at some level. These teachers really work together to get the students to enjoy the learning process. And the students really do seem to enjoy learning here. When we speak to other parents, from other schools to compare 'notes', SR is always on top. Parents who have had to move away to another school have always regreted being spoiled by the quality that SR provides students. I am confident that SR has given our kids what they need to succeed.
High pressure to perform; avg student per class is more like 24+ now. Overcrowding is a problem. Overall, more help now for low performers, but the older kids are behind in reading and comprehension. Math/science are still emphasized.
Son has been here since Kindergarten, excellent school, fantastic teachers and administrators, will greatly miss it next year when we move to Jr High.
