My children have attended Stribling from kindergarten through the fifth grade. Each year we have a teacher whose personality matches what our kids need at each stage in their development. The science curriculum has been highly motivational. The most impressive thing about Stribling is the attention to problem solving and thinking for oneself. Both of my children are independent thinkers who can approach their future middle school classwork with the confidence of a learner who expects to succeed. I credit the teachers at Stribling for this success.
My children attended Stribling for the first time this year (grades k & 2). Our family had undergone horrible financial loss and extreme social changes . The teachers and staff were extremely understanding and compasionate to our problems. One child received speech services at his old school and was immediately placed into the same services upon enrolment at Stribling. Other counseling, services, testing were provided without hesitation and at our request. Our teachers were loving and honest about our children's development. The class sizes are typical of Texas public schools. The teachers give back as much and more what the parents devote to their children's education. The teachers are always available for conferences, email, or phone conversation to discuss any topic or concern the parents express. We are doing everything possible to stay in the Stibling zone so our children can continue to benefit from the wonderful environment offered at Stribling.
My first child went to Stribling from K-5 and my younger child has just finished his first year at Stribling. I am so disapointed in the changes over the past few years. The student to teacher ratio is horrible. Promises of assesment or testing or other types of learning were never followed up on. There is no such thing as 'individual' in this school. Sadly, my child, who was so looking forward to school, now hates it. I was amazed by the catty behavior displayed by the staff and teachers. I have been in tears many times this year because of how my child was treated by his teacher and once I complained, he was also treated badly by other teachers or staff. I will go into debt if I have to so that my child will not have to attend this school ever again.
This is such a warm and inviting environment for both the children, and the parents. I really feel that this school, and all of its staff do everything in their power to make sure that they foster an excitement for learning, and good character in all of its students.
The over all review I have for this school is that it I feel it is teaching to the taks and going beyond. My son has never been at a school so set on making a certain grade for the taks test in order to make this school keep its flawless rating. I feel to much is put into this test and the children are suffering for it
My daughter started the 3rd week of school at Stribling as a transfer student. We transfered from Norwood because of 'overflow'. Otherwise known as too many students. Stribling was such a welcome change for us. My daughter settled in right away, and all of the staff tried to make sure that, that happened for all of the students daily. The campus is immaculate, and just beautiful. I am glad that she will be able to finish Elementary shcool there!
My children have excelled beyond expectation. This is due to the loving, caring nature of the staff and leadership. All the teachers and staff work so well together which demonstrates a wonderful model for each student. There is no tolerance for bullying or 'put downs' on this campus. My children feel safe to learn and grow in the academic and social environment at Stribling Elementary. This school has made a positive difference in the lives of my children and family. The impact will be with us for life.
