Parents and teachers agree that the environment at Stanley is extremely positive overall and students are challenged and achieve at high levels. They also agree that an area to strengthen is cafeteria noise and, to a small degree lunchroom behavior. The cafeteria is also the gym so it's naturally quite loud. One of the focus areas for me as the new principal will be to be in the cafeteria as frequently as possible to support teachers in maintaining an orderly and positive lunch environment for children and teachers. I am also committed to working with teachers and students in classrooms and in monthly whole school assemblies to build consensus around what a calm, peaceful cafeteria looks, sounds and feels like. I am confident that we can improve the lunch experience for everyone even though truthfully no one is saying that it is so terrible, it just could be a little better.
My daughter spent a year at K class, that was great! now she is in 1st grade, she already loved her new teacher. Fantastic school, amazing teachers, many other additional classes, she took a chess class and a Spanish class last year, we are going to take them again.
My grandaughter currently attends this school. It has challenging academic programs. It has high parental involvement which definitely contributes to the success of their MCAS scores. Unfortunately, I did hear on one occasion students being screamed at in the cafeteria by a teacher. It does not set a good example when a teacher loses control in front of young children. Overall, it has a great principal and hardworking teachers.
