This school is awful. We are new to this area and I have found if you do not have a long standing last name they alienate your children and are great to others. The staff is almost like high school kids on a power trip. I am switching all of my children to pinconning. They do not support the kids at all. One of my children came home crying because her teacher became mad at her in front of the other students for not understanding something. Isn't it their job to teach? Not to make them feel stupid! I feel sorry for anyone that has their children attending there. Worst mistake I have ever made.

I am very disatisfied with the way that this school treats minoritys and their familys. My son is one of these minority that has faces several attacks as well as racial slurs from students as well as staff.I thought you were supposed to be rated 4 stars for safety and discipline. The only discipline I see is suspending my child for fights and other incidents while defending himself. when does it stop????

I really do not like this school, the only thing great about it is my friends and Mr. Holiday, which is the best teacher you will ever find! Your welcome Holiday!

This is an amazing school! the teachers are great and so are the students. My child had no problems making friends at S.S.C. Their football is awesome as are many of their other sports. They even have cool clubs. My daughter is in FFA at Standish-Sterling and she loves it! their FFA is so good, they make it to States every year. I love everything about this school!

Last year was our first year in the Standish-Sterling School District. I have one that started High School and one that started Middle School. Everyone was so helpful and went out of their ways to make things go smoothly for both of them. I agree with the last post that said every school has the little 'clique', but it did not take long for either of my children to make friends ... and not just with one 'clique' they both had several friends from them. Parental support with everything is amazing as well. When there is a sporting event , Chorus event, or anything else of that nature there is always an overwhelming response. Amazing schools, I am glad that me moved here, having a great school for our children is very important to us. We are also very excited to have out little one start Kindergarden next year 2010-11

This school is amazing. Absolutely everyone here seems to go out of their way too make the experience more enjoyable. There is also a lot of amazing school spirit. SSC is so much cleaner and advanced than any school I have ever stepped into. The teachers are great and the students are great. There are cliques but every school has them,and pretty much 95% of people are easy to get a long with.

I go to school here and I think it's great. Our extracurricular programs are awesome, there's so much to offer. And we just got a new pool and field house/ weight room. My sister just graduated and she had a lot of competition to be top in her class, I think theres good academics. And about the cliques...what school doesnt have cliques?! It's life...get over it!

My children have been attending Standish-Sterling for a year now. I have never been so pleased with a school before. The curriculum is wonderful. My children enjoy this school much better than their last school.

This school has gone really down hill. School grounds and building are great. Teachers are hit or miss. Some care, most don't care about student sucess.

I totally agree with parent review of august 2004. Except music dept. Needs overall improvement.Woman's ensemble needs take more pride in teaching their lower classwoman as they prepare to graduate. Mr.Lundgren is a blessing.

Attended school here until 2004. It was awful. The only reason I graduated was because Dennis Haut believed in me and helped me succeed. Mark Williams will bring nothing except bad things to this school while he is principal. jill

Alot of parent involvement. Change of Principal shows great improvement. Counselors:need more. Rate this school a 4.
