Teachers challenge the students and communicate with parents of progress/areas of concern. These teachers really take a lot of pride in being well prepared, evident from day 1 during well organized parent-teacher conferences/open houses.
Homework is assigned the beginning of each week; informing students and parents of the weekly expectations. Even my Kindergartener receives homework! Communication with the teachers is wonderful; receive emails from teachers and the school.
Stopher Elementary is a wonderful school. Every aspect of this school is top notch. The Principal, teachers and staff are all exceptional. The school hosts many events for the children and family. Homework is well organized, often assigned to each kind at the beginning of the week. Lots of activities for the children (dances, cheer, and educational clubs). Could not be happier with our Kindergartener's and 4th grader's education. They deserve every star! Your children will love this school.
My childhood are getting a wonderful education here & the staff is phenomenal. My only complaint is the lack of adequate parking. It would also be great if orientation were not held in the middle of the work day in consideration of parents that work.
I am a Stopher alumni and I absolutely loved it. The teachers focused on each student heavily and made sure you understood everything. This is the best elementary school in our area. I got distinguished in science, social studies, reading, mathematics, on-demand writing, and language mechanics in fourth and fifth grade. You are putting your child into a great community with kids that actually wan to be your friends. I made so many friends that have lasted long after elementary school. The parents support the kids a ton and the community is great. The outdoor classroom is an effect of the fundraising our grade did, along with the rockwall in the gym and the strong sports teams. I highly recommend this school for your child. You will be happy for the experience anx community you are placing your child in. Tour the school and decide for yourself!
I love this school. My daughter just transferred and we are thoroughly pleased! Everyone is friendly (staff, students, parents) and her teacher is amazing. I love that everything is so organized and the school and staff encourage parental involvement!
