I went to stonewall when i was a kid and I wish more schools were like it. i think the diversity is fantastic! I think it is wonderful that sign lanuage is taught in every grade, and more schools should do it.
This school is great! Very diverse with incredible parent participation. It has a garden, a kindergarden wing, and expects alot from the parents. Its worth it.
Stonewall Jackson is made up of strong and involved parents. THis school is a 'diamond' in the DallasISD school district. From the sign choir, garden club, to the show choir. There is much ado about Stonewall, rightfully so.
My son attended Stonewall Jackson from 2nd grade to 6th grade. The quality of the education he received there put him at a great advantage for middle school. The touch academic standards at Stonewall pushed my son to excell and all his teachers provided tons of support to help him achieve his educational goals. He now attends Pre-AP classes in middle school and has no problems with the courses because of the superior education he received early on. I would highly recommend this school to anyone.
My daughter has flourished at Stonewall Jackson under the superior leadership and dedicated staff.
Stonewall Jackson is a great elementary school. For many years they earned the title of a bluew ribbon school. This school has the reputation of being one of the best elementary schools in the DISD. MY child loved this school because they really want their students to learn. They also take pride of the blue ribbon status of the school and they make an extra effort to keep. Excellent music and TAG program.
Stonewall Jackson is an extremely diverse school. The availability of extra curricular activities is large, and includes sign language and music. The teachers are excellent and care about each individual student. My son was challenged academically and his grades soared.
I love the programs available here. The teachers are wonderful. I love the art, music, gardening, and sign language classes. The best school in DISD!
I believe that for a public school, this is one of the most postive schools in Dallas. The emphasis on learning and discipline are exemplory.
I have already posted a review of Stonewall Jackson, and continue to feel quite positive about it. I do, however, have some concerns about the TAG 'program,' and question its value given only short periods of time, ONCE per week. I have not been able to discern if my child is getting anything from it at all.
An absolutely GREAT school. The foundation that our child received at Stonewall has served him very well, indeed. At Stonewall, they spend their time TEACHING. Stonewall's teachers and staff encourage and foster creativity and excellence in all areas.
We are very happy with Stonewall Jackson, all of the staff are great. The after school care is great and affordable
I have two children at Stonewall and we absolutely love it! The teachers are wonderful and seem to genuinely care for the children. And the After School Program...tremendous! The school would not be as great as it is without it. The only problem I have is the principal; she seems to be insignificant. In my opinion, the school functions under the leadership of the PTA, which is fine by me.
My children attend this school and I have been very pleased with the teachers and the curriculum. They have fabulous programs to enhance the children's education: sign language, garden, music, art, etc. The school also selects one country every year and the entire school learns about this country including its geography, people, cultural customs, and art. This school is the gem of DISD.
My child had been a student at Stonewall Jackson for nearly two years. The big blue ribbon is commendable, but the actual day to day experience left a lot to be desired. There are some wonderful aspects to this school, for single parents and others who work outside the home. The afterschool program is a God send! But that's it! The Deaf Education program and kindergarten and teachers who deal mostly with exceptional children, including (TAG) are worthy of their hire! They stand out! However, I found the experience for my daughter and (in observation) other children, a bit too regimented and controlling. Barring the need to maintain order, it left my heart sad to witness. I just didn't like the corporate approach with little people. Our kids are numbers there and the teachers seem unwilling to recognize gifts and talent and spirits and -- each of them as individuals. Too much fussing and reprimanding at the wrong children. And high tests scores seem to mean more there than anything else. Stress-ville in my view! New unaware new teachers, and overly presumptuous experienced teachers make lots of angry little children. Enough is enough! We're transferring! The shenanigans of the teachers and the kids just not worth putting up any longer! Peace is our goal.
I went to Stonewall Jackson for six years and moved to Abilene after my sixth grade year. Looking back, I am so grateful for having gone to such an outstanding school. The teachers were great, and I thoroughly enjoyed my early childhood because of that school. It's true that 'the finest school in Texas has Jackson for its name!'
Take two children all the way from England and expect them to adjust to a new school in the US mid-way through the year without problems. Despite many things being different here, know that the kids will have nothing but praise for their school from day one and that you will be delighted with the excellency of the teaching and the friendliness and efficiency of all the staff. Do these sound like unreasonable expectations? Yes. But it's the truth of our experience. We could not ask for a better school. Stonewall Jackson really Is the Best.
You can search all over America and you will not find a school like Stonewall Jackson. It is the best in Dallas. I am so blessed to have my kids going to school here. Could not ask for more. I am truly truly happy.
