I checked great schools when I was looking for houses. Stapleton was rated so highly that I was excited to be moving to such a great school district. Which makes my letdown so much harder to swallow. From the moment we walked through the doors I was struck with the lack of communication but shrugged it off as coming in halfway through the year. The next 4 months were spent dealing with inexperienced teachers, ineffective administration and downright incompetence in the hands of the principal, who seems more concerned with saving face than helping children succeed. Ratings can be so deceiving.

I think the education provided at Stapleton surpasses any & all Mohela public schools, in the Joplin community. It is obvious the teachers care about my children, & want what is best for the children that attend this school. If you have ever had the blessing, of having a child, receive Ms. Headley, you know what I mean. The teachers at this school create relationships that change lives...both with children & parents.

I am glad my kids attend Stapleton. I think they take a real interest in our kids.
