Stahl Elementary School2

My daughter goes to Stahl and I have to say it is a wonderful school. She had a great teacher last year but the reading facilitator, Mrs. Strauss was a joke. She was very rude and crude to my daughter and did not care about her students. Do not let your child get tutored by this teacher. HORRIBLE!
Stahl is a diverse and open campus. It takes pride in its bilingual program and the new dual language kindergarten. Students are encouraged to treat each person with respect through the campus wide use of 'I Care Rules' and an anti-bullying intiative now in its third year on campus. Parents are always present as volunteers as well as involvement in the PTA. Many programs throughout the school year bring families and staff together. A dedicated staff work hard and stay late to make sure that the needs of all students are met.
We moved from Maine prior to my daughter starting Kindergarten. We have two older children and the quality difference between kindergartens in Maine and the same grade here are astonishing. My daughter is reading books I wasn't even able to attempt until 2nd grade. Ms. Stallings is doing an incredible job with her class. We had a few hiccups with the bus garage and temporary bus drivers, but the usual route drivers are involved with the kids and treat them like their own children. I'm very happy thus far.
I have two children attending Stahl Elementary and I must say that the teachers are exceptional, the administration involvement is wonderful, and there is a general feeling of pride and respect regarding the school. The music program has two great teachers that go above and beyond for extracurricular activities, and the physical education program is very in depth and informative. My husband and I have learned things regarding general health we didn't know from our children! Stahl is a great school. I'd recommend anyone moving into San Antonio to make an effort to be in this district, in this elementary school.
