This school has the finest leadership I have ever encountered in my years as an elementary school instructor. There is support for the students including tutoring, clubs and a lot of fun activities for them. The teachers are of pressured in any way and are given the freedom to teach he curriculum in a more effective and active way. A Four Star school on its way to Five!
Stanford is a great school. I believe that before any program to work effectively, there must be strong leadership, and teachers that will implement whatever necessary methods to encourage and motivate their students to academic achievement. The 3rd grade teachers are among the best at just that. Despite the overwhelming curriculum and unrealistic time that teachers have to implement their lesson, leaves little time for review for students who are behind. But overall exceptional learning institution.
Stanford is a wonderful school; I have my 4th child there right now. They are caring and keep you informed, from the staff to the teachers I give them an A+. However, I do believe that the kindergarteners are being pushed to hard and that they are given to much homework, the kindergarten students have more homework than a 2nd grader and 7th grader combined. This is not the fault of the school, but of the district, they are setting our children up to fail and unfortunately the poor teachers at Stanford are at the mercy of the district. Keep up the great work Stanford!
Stanford has an excellent Kindergarten Program. Mrs. Ward is a fantastic teacher and works hard to keep her students high achieving. The entire atmosphere is safe and inviting making it a wonderful learning environment for all children.
