Great teachers make a great school. Stony Point South has it. Only thing that concerns me is the lunches, blahhh. I think I ate better in jail. Will be packing lunches this year if its the same.

Both my daughters have gone to Stony Point South. My oldest went there for 3 years and now my youngest attends. My youngest has attending for 3 years as well. The teachers are phenomenal and they do a wonderful job with the students. The principal does a great job keeping us parents informed on everything that is going on, including when there are incidents that have happen at the school. This is a wonderful elementary school and I am proud to say that both of my daughters have had the opportunity to be students at this school.

I wish the school had "After School Tutoring" my niece is in need of this- I am trying to get little workbooks and taking her to the library to help her, but I can only do so much- she needs more help than I can offer, she has problems of connecting and concentrating about math,word problems and money.

I love my son school. He is in kindergarten and I can't believe how much stuff he has learned this year!!! You wouldn't believe how much stuff they teach the children in kindergarten and the technique they use. My son actually remembers it all! I don't want to move just so all three of my kids can have the chance to attend Stoney Point South.

I am very happy with the education both my sons have received. The entire staff is friendly and well informed about events in the school. They really encourage the students to learn and reward them quite often, I could not ask for a better school.
