My grandson will attend kindergarten in the fall. As a retired teacher myself, I thought it was a fantastic idea to have "camp" for these little guys. The first days of school should be a breeze for them. Keep up the great work
This is the absolute best school around. Wonderful, caring teachers and staff work together for the good of all students. Students get extra attention and care when needed, they are not just a number as with larger schools. The middle school students still have a connection with teachers and don't feel they have to 'grow up' as fast as students do in true middle schools. I wouldn't want my children anywhere else.
In a previous post, the parent said that the pricipal of Stanfield did not like sports and would not support them. That is the most ridiculous statement I've read! This principal used to coach cheerleading while she taught here! Not only was she an excellent teacher, my daughter had her in third grade, she was an excellent coach when my daughter cheered when she was in 7th and 8th grades.
I don`t know.... Stanfield is an alright school but teachers get mad at every little thing. The school would be better without I`d say around 2 or 3 less of the teachers. As for sports and clubs stanfield has pretty much everything so they are good on that. But like one of the reviews said most teachers are here just to get the summer off.
I love Stanfield School. I have three children that attend and I am very proud of our school and the staff. I have one child with special needs and they more than meet his needs. I would not send my three children any where else.
For the most part, the teachers here good. We do have a few who are only teaching because they get the summer off. And it shows when we as parents, not teachers, have to teach our children at home how to do particular assignments. The principal is the biggest downfall of this school. Most schools have a principal who support extracurricular activities such as sports....NOT HERE. Our principal made a statement that she did not like sports and would not support them in any way. And trust me it shows. Some people need to realize that kids who participate in extracurricular activities tend to stay out of trouble a little longer. Except for the petty infactions they receive at school for talking too loud in the hall or laughing in the restrooms.
