its like a reform school. kids are never allowed to be happy or talk in the mornings are at lunch. i understand they need to be more silent and especially at lunch they want them to eat but in kindergarten they would flip them on a red flag and than the little ones would sit with there head down and miss all recess. a woman actually told my daughter in front of me to stop running in the grass before school even started. they have absolute horrible attitudes and couldnt care less if a parent is there or not. one sub actually made my kindergatner cry because she told her to stand by the fence and not come to me when school was over. she kept interfering while i spoke to my daughter and putting her two sense in making her cry. was ridiculous!! i would never send my kid to this school again, maybe the new principal is better i am not sure. but it was worse than military boot camp before.
The Staff is wonderful, very caring and seem to really enjoy their jobs(which makes a differance) The parent liason really makes you feel like your an important part of this school. Upon meeting her she made me feel comfortable and as if we were long lost friends.its just a wonderful place knowing that your child is in a place free of hassle and learning and caring are top priority. Thank you Mae Stvens staff Great Job
This is likely the best school in town. The My kids love this school!! They have thrived in their classrooms. The entire staff are very child/parent oriented. Parents are welcome to visit the campus/classroom at any time. The teachers are good and provide the children with a positive learning experience. As far as the parking goes, what school doesn't have parking issues, especially the first week of school. Not a factor at all. I would suggest this school to anyone that may be relocating to the area.
The parent liason is awesome. The school as a whole isn't that great. If you don't have alot of time to be invloved in PTA, or volunteering in general, you're made to feel like a bad parent. The rules only apply to certain people. The parking/pickup is a night mare.
My daughter attended pre-k here last year and loved it. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Now that my family and I moved to Georgia, I'm really going to miss Mae Stevens. I hope someday we get the chance to go back!
I am a grandparent with two grandchildren attending Mae Stevens. The staff is exceptional. I have experience with many schools after raising four children and now having four grandchildren. Mae Stephens is a rare school in this day and age. Students are having fun learning, and yearning for learning! Who could ask for more than a child's thirst for knowledge and a teaching staff excelling with the task before them. They even have a grandparents lunch each year! Thanks Mae Stevens for your commitment to excellence.
I have had experiences with several different elementary schools and I think that Mae Stevens is by far the best one I have come across. I consider myself and my child lucky to be able to be involved with this campus.
This is the Best school. I love everything about Mae Stevens, everyone is very friendly and my daughter Loves going there. I live on post and drive twice a day just so my daughter can attend Mae Stevens. I couldn't have asked for her first year of school to have been any better.
I love this school! Great parent involvement and you are always welcome at the school. Principal knows all the kids by first name.
My son has gone to this school since he was in kindergarten and I just love this school! Everyone is very friendly and parent involvement is excellent. I feel the quality of academics is very high and they are always trying to improve on last years scores.
We loved the school. I got the opportunity to teach at Mae Stevens and send my child to Kindergarten there. It was a caring and hard working staff, great administration, and a clean school. My child left reading and is currently ahead in her first grade classroom. We have sinced moved to another state and miss Mae Stevens dearly.
I enrolled my son in the Pre-K program at Mae Stevens mid-year, and have been very impressed with the school. The teachers in the program are caring and dedicated, and run the classes in a very organized but fun way. My son has enjoyed every day he has been here, and he has learned so much. The kids go to PE and music everyday and the library once a week. The staff is wonderful--you are always greeted when you come in, and they are always glad to see parents! The parents are very involved, and I found the PTA to be extremely welcoming. It has been a great experience for us!
For the past seven years I have had a child at Mae Stevens. If you like to be a part of your child's education, this is the school for you. They love volunteers,. The principal is actively involved with the volunteers. Once a month there is library night with a program put on by the students with fun activities for the whole family. This schools makes it fun for the kids with special theme days. The whole staff is nice as well as helpful. I don't know of many schools where the principal knows every child's name and the kids think of her as a friend.
