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!
I think Stopher is the best elementary school in Jefferson County,our whole family love it.My son improved so much in reading and math.Since we are not native English speaker,we are very anxious about the reading and writing class.However,our son adapt well and he learned so fast.We cannot be more proud of him and appreciate all the hard work his teacher made.Way to go!Stopher Elementary!
I have two children at Stopher. At our first orientation I had an extremely negative first impression, but it has turned out to be a great place for my kids because their classroom teachers/assistants are amazing!! As far as some of the related arts teachers go, I don't appreciate some of their rude attitudes....I volunteer a lot at school and interact with them often. The most rude person at the school is the principal, I have always had issues with her inability to articulate clarifications such as why students are required to take Chinese versus Spanish, and she has been randomly rude to me while I've been at the school. She really needs to learn how to speak to people more kindly and I certainly hope she does not speak to her students that way. I am just thankful she is just the principal and not the teacher :) As long as the teachers stay great through the years I will be happy!
I have two kids go to this school. Everything is perfect. However, did any parents notice the communication tower over this school? I'm worried about the radiation. Kids spend 8 hours in the school. Parents, let's talk to the board about this serious issue.
We have 3 boys attending Stopher and we absolutely love it. The school has great principal, staff and teachers. It offers great academic program and so many after school activities. It also has strong PTA and very involved parents.
Our three children attend Stopher Elementary and our entire family is extremely happy with the school!! Our children are not only thriving academically, but are excited to get up and go to school each day. We also appreciate the Gifted Program, which is both challenging and fun for the students. The teachers are excellent and they provide an enthusiastic and challenging, hands-on learning environment. Stopher School is a happy place for our children to begin their education!
Our child attended Stopher for only 2 grades BUT loved everything about it. We unfortunately relocated and hated to leave this school. Our child loved the teachers! This school offered a gifted program, after school programs and the technology was first rated.
