I love that this is a small school, all teachers have many years experience (no first year teachers), & the students are a great group of kids. The teachers & staff are friendly & warm. I'm excited for a new school & increased population that will add some diversity & opportunities.
I have been trying to get my child out of this school since the beginning of the school year. Last year I felt that the teachers and administration cared about my child and his progression and that we had formed a good working relationship. This year has changed my mind entirely. No interest in parental input. as well as a complete disregard for child's individual needs. Sink or swim. This is where and why those who struggle fall through the cracks. Oh, but they have great test scores... ever wonder why?
My child attended the Child Development program at Stono Park and we absolutely loved it! The teachers are incredibly caring and attentive to the needs of the children. The principal is highly involved, effective and approachable. This school is a little-known gem in West Ashley.
