My son was fortunate to have the same teacher 2 years in a row. He is one of the youngest kids in his Advanced Kindergarten class and often has trouble sitting still and focusing. He is very smart and is able to complete his classwork easily, but we have been blessed by not only the relationship we now have with his teacher but her immense understanding of our son, his age, etc. We were concerned that another, younger teacher without 34+ years of experience (what his current teacher has) would not have the patience or understanding to work well with our son. He has continued to grow, come in to his own, and continually amaze us with his vocabulary and the knowledge he retains from his teacher.

Not at all impressed with the teaching staff and definitely not with the principal. I was thrilled to get my child out of that environment and into a school where respect and kindness was shown to all students, regardless of their differences. While my child attended Stonegate, I learned to listen very closely to her recall of teacher comments and personal stories during class time. Parents, please be alert to the fact that your child is a captive audience when they're in the classroom. Unless that classroom is monitored by camera's or aides, your child is subject to personal opinions, criticisms & ideas that may not be appropriate or accurate. Listen to your kids and encourage them to tell you about their day in school!

Stonegate doesnt care about any of my child at all. he was picked on and verbal abused all the time. I was in the principal's office all the time. I tried to get a transfer, but was denied by over 12 schools. The wouldnt approve me for an out of district transfer. So we moved. This school shouldnt even be open

I have 2 childeren in this school this year-we moved here. I think that the intentions are good and supporting for the childeren but that my childeren are not being challenged enough, the staff is great, but the kids need more challenge

We were a Stonegate family since my child was 3 until he was 9 years old. We transferred to another school this year for several reasons. We felt that our child wasn't getting challenged enough academically. Our child had been in the honors classes every year and never did work that made him think. Several children in his class was behind academically so then the other children had to suffer by doing work that they had already been exposed too. The teachers are all very supportive and try to help each child. The level of parent involvement was not very good. We had several class meetings to go over what the children should be doing and the participation of the parents were small and most didn't seem to care much about what was going on. We also worried about when the school closes how things would go.

My son has attended this school for the past 5 years. Our experience here has been excellent! If this was a K-12 school, he would attend until graduation. The quality of the staff, and their attitude is awesome. I have recommended Stonegate to several families, and never heard a complaint from any of them. I wouldn't hesitate to offer any and every type of support possible to this great establishment. Wish there were more here in the City, just like it.

So far the school has been very good, despite my initial concerns. The teachers that my child has had have been very good and concerned about the children s education. The appearance of the school is what prompted my initial concerns but after my daughter started those were lifted and I m proud to have her there. She loves the activities (honor choir, strings) that she participates in which go to different locations in the city and perform.

This is a very good school. My daughter loves the teachers and the principal there. They staff are very involved and care about the students.

I would not reccommend that any parent send their child to this school. My child was repeatedly assualted physically and verbally. And the principal refused to do anything to the children involved. Instead she chose to punish my child by keeping her in at recess if she felt unsafe on the playground. Because of the unwillingness of the principal and faculty to provide a safe environment for my daughter I ultimately transfered my daughter to a different school where she is thriving. I have also known many other parents who have either transfered their children or chosen to move to enable them to attend a different school for the same reasons.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

Oops! We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Public and charter school test scores for most states come from the state Department of Education. The most common reasons we might not have this data are either that not enough students took the test or that the school was recently opened, and its scores have not yet been reported.
