Teacher effectiveness: Very effective
July 28, 2015
My son came to Stiles as a 6th grader with Autism. Because of his learning disabilities he came in reading at a second grade level. By the end of 7th grade he was reading at a 5th grade level. If it weren't for the dedication of the staff at Stiles he would not have made it that far, that fast. He made friends both on and off the football team. When he was the new kid several students reached out to help him and show him around. Now that he's got a handle on things he shows other kids around. People need to understand that teachers are only capable of accelerating your child if you are involved in their education and curriculum. If you have no idea what they are learning, both inside the classroom and in the hallway, then you shouldn't expect a flawless experience in any school. If you actually saw how some of these kids behave to staff and bus drivers you would be shocked. I have seen the staff deal with bullying and more serious situations immediately, effectively, and in the best interest of the other students. Parents are as accountable for the educational and social development of their child as the teachers are.

My daugher has thoroughly enjoyed 6th grade at Stiles Middle School. The office staff has been truly wonderful and she loves all her teachers and they have made the transition from elementary to middle school easy.

This school has become a beacon for bullying. Not just from the students but from teachers as well. The kids that attend have set groups and do not let outsiders in very easily. They will like you for a short time while you are the shiny new toy and then shun you like a parrah. This is our second year at Stiles. Last year we were the shiny new toy, this year the parrah. When you try to confide in one of the staff members they share that information with other parents and staff members. This school lacks ethics, and the favoritism runs deep.

This school is very academically weak. Science teacher talks about what he intends to make for dinner that night, language arts teacher can't explain a wrong answer but insists it is in the answer book so it must be correct, bullying by teachers and students goes unaddressed.

My daughter has attended this school since it opened. I continue to be highly impressed with the teachers and staff. They truly care and challenge my daughter academically daily. She is thriving at this school!
