This is the 4th year that my grandchildren have attended this school. The first year the children were going through some personal trauma and also they had transferred schools each of their school years. But they took to it very soon and liked their teachers very much. They both ended up in the Pre-AP classes. The second year they were happy not to be the "new kids" again. They have been successful there. My son is a single parent raising the kids. He is pleased with the school and with the teachers.
My child transferred from ft worth ISD, horrible!!! I'm so impressed with the change...my child is learning and understanding what they are teaching. I'm so happy n so is my child, she loves it n wants to go to school each day!! All the bad reviews are so old n I'm sure this has all been straightened out by now. Ms Thune is her home room teacher and she's just great, very friendly to parents n the kids n makes them feel safe and welcome. My child comes home everyday happy n tells me all about her day! They teach the kids responsibility by using their MOOSE booklet that has to be signed daily and the kids are responsible for taking of care of this task, I love it! Great idea n great school, if I had another angel, I'd definitely send them to this school! Keep up the great work!
While my daughter loves the school so far- I am disppointed in their dropping the ball on her GT status. If I could transfer her I would.
I feel for the ones that don't like this school because of whatever issues they had, all I know is that our son is "mildly autistic" and SURE! we had concerns about it like everyone else. But I'M happy to report that BOTH our kids go there, one girl (5), and my boy(9). They are doing good there so far,they BOTH like it, and we are pleased with the teachers there too! My boys homeroom teacher says that the kids in his class are helpful with him, and are getting along with him too, as well as my girl getting along too. Hope it keeps up! Just maybe we THANKFULLY got lucky so far, cause we didnt have a CHOICE in the matter, in picking schools, but so far, glad they are going there ;-)
I went to this school since kindergarten. The academics are poor and the teachers basically just care about their paycheck, not thier students. If your child is going to Stonegate, hurry and find a different school.
This is the worst school I have ever seen. I pulled my kids out and am homeschooling them now. There are so many bullies in this school. My kids hated going to school everyday because they were so worried that there would be bullied that day. The teachers say they can't do much about it because the principal doesn't want to deal with it and tells the teachers to handle it and not to send the kids to the office.

Parents that feel leadership at this school is above average must have their heads buried in the sand. This school has the very worst principal in Texas. She has no clue in running a school or relating the children. Children face sexual bullying issue on a daily bases.
This was a great school a few years ago but it's awful now. There is a big bullying issue that is not being handled. Most of the teachers are wonderful but are having a hard time handling the issues with the out of control kids. I will be pulling my kids out this summer, we are moving to a better school district.
My kids have been at Stonegate for 2 1/2 years. It used to be a pretty good school, but it has gone downhill significantly. This is the most negative environment I have ever seen for children. I really hate sending my 3 children to school there. There are bullying issues. The teachers yell at the kids. The school is very poorly ran.
As a parent of a new student to Stonegate, I am continuing to be impressed by how welcoming the teachers, students, and administration have been to my child and myself. Anytime I have had a concern it was handled promptly and in a manner that makes me proud to be a Stonegate parent. We like the extra curricular activities-Stonegate Gamers is my son's favorite. I feel so blessed to have a safe, nurturing school for my son to go to everyday-a place he loves to be! Thank you to the teachers and administration for all you do!!!
Im very pleased with the quality of education of this school.My daughter is in first grade with Mrs.Thomas this teacher is outstanding she really cares for her students in an authentic way my daughter is reading so much better and comprehending so much more specially when she is from a sapnish speaking parents.
My daughter is a Kinder student at Stonegate this yer 08-09 and she has learned so much, she is reading and doing addtion, her teacher has helped me make her a better listener as well. If you live in this area of Bedford, I highly recommend this school for your child.
I've had five children go through the rigors of Stonegate Elementary and I have to say I'm extremely pleased with the fact that we happened to live in this school's district! The teachers all clearly care about their students, they hold students to a level of responsibility that encourages their independent thinking skills, and they are very well prepared for moving on to the junior high experience! I wish my kids could go to Stonegate longer than K-6!
It passes in social and academic standards, it's teachers are great although pushy relying on stressing a student to get his or her grades or test scores up. The enviroment is friendly and very familiar.
If you enjoy a school that is military style this is the one for you. I think social developement is an important factor of learning and survival in this world today. They definately do not encouraged it here. There is little parent involvement. Dont know whether this is because of the pricipal or PTA members that run it or lack of interest.
There seems to be a huge push to get test scores up no matter what. Teachers seems extremely stressed trying to get all the students where they need or want them to be. There are not many extracurricular activities. Parent involvement is not encouraged or seems to be undesired. Supposedly this is due to current principal.
This is a great school!! It has wonderful, creative teachers, and a family-like atmosphere!! Mrs. Fuller and Mrs. Krause are A++++++++++ teachers!!!
My son just started 3rd grade at Stonegate, and he is new to this school - he had been attending a private Montessori school, and I was concerned about his overall transfer and adjustment - academic and social. He's only been there a week, but we are thrilled with the school. In speaking with other established parents, I have only heard good things about the school from them as well. My son is doing beautifully, and he loves his class and his teacher - my fears were all in vain! We are so happy with this school, if things keep going as well as they are, I'm thinking that I won't keep my daughter in private school as long as I did my son. I'll put her in Stonegate sooner than 3rd grade.
