My son just finished kindergarten and had a wonderful year. His teach was one in a MILLION! She spent her own personel time doing special things for the children at the end of the school year. The assistant principle was great also he new all the childrens names the first week of school. Everyone is very friendly, helpful, kind and caring. I hope that we have many more wonderful yeats her at Stillwater Elementary School

I have been thrilled to have my children attend Stillwater School. The PTA, parents and teachers all work together to creative a wonderful environment for the children to learn in. Everyone is warm, caring and genuinely concerned about the childrens welfare. There are many extra-curricular activites & events for the children & families of Stillwater to participate in. It has always felt like a large extended family for my children and they have benefited greatly from starting their education at such a great school!

We bought our house in Stillwater partly because of the great reputation of the Elementary School. It's a wonderful school. Friendly teachers and staff. Only complaint is that not enough choices of languages for study. Only French is offered. I would have preferred that my children learned Spanish instead. Overall it's a first class institution.

Academic quality is great. Great music program - band starts in 4th grade. Many students involved in chorus & band. Art enrichment is available during the school day, as is a gifted & talented program. Strong PTA program, which supplies extra equipment & cultural activities to the school. Family math & science programs are available for 5-6 weeks in the evenings once a year. Great student to teacher ratio - under 21 per class in grades k - 3, although my kid's classrooms never exceeded 19 in those grades.

My daughter was only able to attend the first 6 months of this school due to a move, but it was a great 6 mths. She still talks about her teacher and how much fun she had. I loved the school they did a great job transitiong her from pre-K to an all day Kindergarten. She was able to learn and grow alot. Her teacher made it very easy to get and stay involed in every aspect. Which made a great transition for me as well.
