I love working at Stepping Stones. It is such a healthy, safe environment for the staff and students. I truly feel supported, and therefore am able to give my best to students. As a parent, I would confident that my child is in a school that cares about his or her individual needs. Each teacher has their own method of instruction, but is constantly in professional development with the curriculum development specialist. The principal cares about the academic standards and the management of the classes. The classrooms are very organic and hands-on. The environment has been carefully planned to yield the most educational experience for students. Have you looked at the STAAR test scores? The 7th and 8th grade scores were through the roof this year!

I think this is a wonderful School to work at. The principle supports his teachers and staff. The teachers and Staff communicate well with each other. The students has a setting that is safe, fun and lots of enrichment for learning. I wish I was a kid again so I could attend here!

This is a good school, compared to the large Alief school my child would have attended. They have a new resource room with laptops and the classes are small about 18 to 20 per class. The Principle truly cares about his school and believes in a new approach to teaching and allows the teachers to cover their material in the way that best suits their teaching style and this makes a difference in how the kds learn.

This is a small school setting and a wonderful one. The teachers are knowledgeable, supportive, and assertive. Good curriculum are followed, and the school is TEA Recognized, two years at a roll. The entire staff work together as a great team. The leadership is great. The school is diverse. My son started with the school when it was first opened and I wish the school can go all the way to at least 8th grade because my son have to leave the school now for the 7th grade. My son have benefitted from this school tremendously. His grade and behavior have improved. I disagree that the school gives last minute invitations to things. Event notices are always placed in the kids homework folders well in advance!

Its a nice small school, the March 2009 comment is correct that they give last minute invitations to things at the school, and seem very protective as to parents popping up at the school. I feel the security is very good and my 5 yr old loves the school compared to Boone Elementary - which is also good but so large I feel the smaller school teaches more and at their own pace. The curriculum covers Texas requirements/ which they went beyond to give the kids more than just basics. Good school - very clean and contained.

Overall, it seems that the school focuses too much on being 'different' and doesn't address core academic and social needs. Communication among staff seems to be haphazard at times, and parents are not informed about important information relevant to their child's well-being in a timely manner. You have to 'dig' to access the school's resources, and handouts about school functions and upcoming events aren't handed out in enough time for one to request time off from work to attend. Some of the teachers fail to address teasing and verbal bullying appropriately. However, it is diverse, the report cards are the most creative and detailed of any that I've ever seen in terms of what your child is being graded on, the appearance of the school (upkeep, etc) is impressive, and I like that the kids do interesting projects. It is not a bad school, but not a good school either.

My child has been at Stepping Stones since they began with pre-k and is now thriving in first grade. I am a very active parent in the school and cannot say enough wonderful things about the teachers, principal, teachers aids and everyone who works with the kids on a daily basis. They truly care about all of the kids and know every one by name. It's more than a school environment, it's almost like a second family. Because the class size is capped, each child gets the individual attention they need on a daily basis. I highly recommend Stepping Stones.

My daughter couldn't wait to get back to school, that's how much she loves it at Stepping Stones. The whole staff is just fantastic. I wish she could stay there through 12th grade.

I have mixed feelings about this school. On one hand, I am pleased with the small classrooms (capped at ~18 students), the diverse cultural background of the student population, the lack of early dismissal days, the practical school hours, and the material that is covered. On the other hand, the teachers are nice but seem to have difficulty curtailing behavioral problems of students (perhaps overt bullying is not tolerated, but bullying does occur and is not swifty nor effectively stopped), the paraprofessional/clerical staff sometimes treats parents in a dismissive manner, communication with parents about important issues needs improvement, the availability of supplemental academic services is not made clear to parents, and the principal, though seemingly a nice person, appears to be rushed and somewhat flustered.

This school is innovative, with small classes/good teacher to student ratio; assistants in each classroom, and ESL certified teachers. Ater school tutoring is offered and curriculum is based on the TEKS objectives. PE is offered each day. Emotional and physical safety is stressed, no bullying tolerated.

My child goes to this school and his teachers are wonderful and are really dedicated to the kids. The school staff and the principal are very helpful and kind. My child was attending a fort bend school last year and was failing every class. Believe it or not he is a on the A and B honor roll this year now that's he's attending this school. This school is the best and if any parent has anything negative to say about the school then they should pull their child out and give their spot to other child/parent who would appreciate the teacher, school satff, and principal.!

They seem more concerned about time than what the children are learning. My child goes all day and still has 20 -24 spelling words along with 4 to 5 pages of math homework to do weekly. The projects are not age appropriate for the children. The basics of math facts and reading should be stressed more.

The school is very dull and boring. The classrooms are too small. The school day is too long as well.

If you don't mind a mediocre school this will do. It is brand new and it looked great and with new ideas. It looks better than it is. The teachers are nice and some are really good and dedicated.
