Second year at Stults. Teachers are AMAZING. The school has a really good atmosphere. My son attends another RISD elementary school (which has a better rating than Stults), and I definitely prefer Stults. My daughter loves her school.

I have put 5 children through Stults over a period of 12 years and have been through 3 different principals. I saw the school achieve the most success during the tenure of Darwin Spiller. He was about his business. I had an excellent relationship with him and knew things would be handled if I brought it to his attention. Some parents speak about diversity as a negative at Stults. It does have a high minority population but I'll be the first to address that they are the smart minority population and it's why the school tests so well and has earned exemplary status for a number of years in a row. Some of the parent reviews seem a little lacking to me, because they mention things like "fun" or "PTA" or something that is not as important as a child's testing scores or quality teachers and education. My children have earned scholarships to great colleges because their SAT scores were through the roof. That's proof of the foundation that Stults set when they were young, and proof that RISD is one of the best. I'd like to see the new principal at Stults run the school the way Mr. Spiller did, but I'm giving her a chance. Great school, great teachers...

My son just finished his Kindergarten year at Stults. I am very pleased. I loved his teacher Ms. Buckner! She was AWESOME!!! She had a great balance of discipline and love. She expected A LOT but gave just as much. There was alot of homework but well worth it in the end. The principal was great as well. Very well respected by his staff. There are some areas for improvement just like with any school. The PTA is improving. They did alot this year; from what I have been told more than the previous years. We are moving and I am trying to stay within this area so my son can attend Stults road again! Way to go Stults!

My kids have been at this school for 5yrs. My youngest just started kinder this year. The only reason they continue to attend this school is because of location and where we live. I am looking in to moving all 3 of them. My oldest, who is in 6th this year, has had a really hard time with the students and the teacher. The teacher always seems to punish just her, and none of the other kids, even though they have done the same thing. There are not enough field trips, class functions. If they want kids to stay focused on their work, they need to make school and learning fun. PTA has done nothing at all this year. There are so many things that need to be fixed about this school. Yes they get awards and everything, but that does not make them a great school for kids.

Overall I have gotten a great vibe from the school. This is my sons first year and loves it. The only thing that I did not like was that you could only walk your kindergarten child to class the first day. I think that the first week should be an option. There are some parents that are sending there only children to school for the very first time. I think it is an easier transition for both child and parent if they had that option. Other than that the staff has been very nice and they seem to have everything together.

The school is great as far as the teachers and adminstration staff. I stay in communication w/my sons teachers and they are always willing to inform me of what is going on. He is 4th grade and has been there since 2nd. As far as diversity, I mean it is Dallas, its Texas what do you expect.

My daughter is a student (1st grade) & this is her 2nd year. School is great! Teachers are helpful, Office staff keeps parents informed, Principal & Asst Principal are on top of things. This school has received several awards & does deserve them. We will be moving soon (due to family growing) so this might be her last year. I'm so sad she will have to leave, but over all this is a great school!

I think this is a great school. My son has attended since kindergarten, he is now in the 5th grade. Looking at the ratings and the stats I'm not so sure anymore, and immediately thought of chaning to Moss Haven.
