Initial fondness of the school is fading, fast. Last year was our first year with a student here. She had a great teacher, one who didn't let kids slide on their work, was engaged, organized, and interested in the students. Thsi year we've had many problems with her teacher. She lets kids slid eon getting their work done - teaching them it is ok to not do their work and do it on time. This is a terrible lesson to children getting close to middle school. Her disorganization and lack of interest in teaching the kids is reprehensible. Of course, not all teachers are great. At this point in my.daughter's school career she needs to get back to having at least a *good* teacher. We've made attempts to find out what next year's teachers are like to see if we need to pull her out of the school to get her ready for middle school and prevent another year of sub-par standards. Unfortunately, the principal here is entirely uninterested in helping her or us. A good measure of a principal isn't how he or she handles things when all is smooth, but how he or she handles things that are less than "you're great!". At this point, this principal is failing miserably on this front.
We have three children who attend or who have attended Stone Oak Elementary. We love it!!! The principal truly cares about all the children at the school. She is a great role model of how a leader should be. Of course, at every school, your child may not click with every teacher but for the most part, the teachers at Stone Oak are wonderful. We could not be happier with the school.
This is an amazing school! Prior to moving to the San Antonio area, we had a less than stellar experience with our school district. Stone Oak Elementary and the amazing leadership by the principle restored my confidence in the educational system and more importantly the confidence that my children s overall well-being is as important to them as it is to me. Thank you Stone Oak Elementary!!!!!
Our school is AWESOME! We have achieved Lighthouse status under The Leader in Me program! We have a great administration, staff, and community that are very concerned with all of the students that attend Stone Oak. We are blessed to have a fantastic principal, who knows each student by name, and works hard to make sure that each student succeeds in anything and everything they do!
Stone Oak Elementary is well organized and Mrs. Ray(Principle)is a great leader. There is a very engaged team of administrators,teachers and parents. I am proud to be a Bobcat Parent!
Five Stars! This is a pretty large elementary school but feels like a small town family environment. Staff are very involved with the children and parents. The principal is on a first name basis with the children and visibly present at all events, offering help and encouragement. I picked my house based on the reputation of this school and I am very glad I did.
My wife and I are really happy with Stone Oak Elementary. Well-kept facilities, good teachers and the quality of education in the North East ISD is fantastic. We moved to MA for a year and my kids kept telling me every day how much they missed Stone Oak Elementary. This is definitely one of the best elementary schools in San Antonio.
Stone Oak is a wonderful place for children! Mrs. Ray's leadership, warmth, communication insight and high expectations provide the amazing setting for a plethora of opportunities to unfold. Enthusiastic, top-notch teachers share in this vision of creating a community of learners that lead in a variety of ways. Mrs. Ray and the teachers are continuously refining and enhancing leadership opportunities. Every time I leave a school play, musical, talent show or event I leave amazed and inspired. I love that my children, all children, get to have such great learning experiences in such a variety of ways and settings. Stone Oak is an awesome place to be!
Excellent school, great teachers. The principal Mrs.Ray the best, super kind , my daughters love her and their teachers. Simple as the best staff, school and principal. Always doing their best for the students in leadership and the 7 habits. Always counting the parents in each and every step of our kids progress and education!
Stone Oak is a wonderful Elementary school. The teachers and administration are outstanding. We were selected as one of the Covey Lighthouse Schools, because of the leadership qualities both the students and staff possess. I am so proud to have a child who is a Stone Oak Bobcat!
This is our third year at SO and we're very happy with the quality of the programs and the dedication of staff. We're also impressed by the involvement and contribution of parents to school activities. My daughter loves her class, she can't wait to go to school each morning. Great job Stone Oak ES!
Stone Oak Elementary is a top-notch school - very professional as they seek to educate the students at a high-level of academics. I appreciate the intentionality to teach the students leadership habits from an early age and encourage the students to put into practice what they are learning everyday. As a parent of a kindergartener, I appreciate the attentiveness and caring of the entire staff, from the principal to her teacher. Excellent elementary school!
Stone Oak is a wonderful school, providing a supporting and nurturing environment for the children to learn. The Administration Team is second to none, teachers are all amazing with a tremendous amount of tenure, knowledge and experience. As a parent, I have been thrilled with the love, guidance, support and encouragment my children receive at Stone Oak.
I have been impressed since day one at stone oak elementary. The staff have every event organized and make every experience a joy. The teachers truly love the children!
Stone Oak Elementary is truly amazing. I had every intention of sending my son to a prestigious private school, but after visiting with the administration and faculty at various private schools in San Antonio and then meeting with Stone Oak, my decision was immediate. Everything that was expected, but missing from those other schools was right here at Stone Oak Elementary. The entire faculty and staff are dedicated to seeing every child succeed in life, academically, emotionally and socially. Their focus on leadership and promoting strong values in combination with their academic program is very impressive and a clear differentiator. I am so glad that I gave this school a chance while looking for an educational path for my son. I have been very pleased and would highly recommend Stone Oak Elementary to anyone.
My children have been attending Stone Oak since 2011. I have seen other schools and no other school amounts to Stone Oak. I feel safe when my children are at school because the office staff no not let any one pass the office without identifing them. I love the atmosphere of the school throughout the hallways. They are bright, and colorful and contain the students work. If anyone was to walk through the hallways of the school they would sense the pride the staff has in their students. The teachers are so willing to help each student. I couldn't ask for a better school for my children to attend. Also, the parents are so involved in the school as well.
My grandson attends Stone Oak Elementary and is in the 4th grade. You can feel the warmth as you walk in the front doors beginning with the front office staff. Stone Oak Elementary has the finest teachers NEISD has to offer and it comes from the leadership of our principal Kristen Ray. I feel honored to have my grandson attend such a dynamic school where character, as well as well as academics is their goal. Everybody in the Stone Oak Elementary school shares the same dedication to helping our students be the very best they can be.
My son Kannon is new to the school, beginning his Kindergarten year. Prior to his enrollment into public school, we had him in a Montessori school and struggled with the idea of him attending a public school system. We are so very happy that we made this choice as Stone Oak Elementary has demonstrated its excellence from School leadership, to the Teachers (Mrs. Deshotel), as well as the Kin program!
I have 2 children that have been attending Stone oak since kindergarten and it has been nothing but exceptional for both of them. It is most important that they enjoy school and the staff as they are the ones that are there. My husband & I as well think the staff & teachers have al been great for our kids, always willing to work with them in areas that they need help with, taking the time to have additional tutoring sessions after school- that right there shows how much these teachers care for our kids education and want them all to succeed. My kids always have positive things to says about Stone Oak and their teachers and classmates, what more can I ask for as a parent.
For my family, Stone oak has been a blessing . I have a 5th grader diagnosed with autism. Since kindergarten he was placed in a coteach room, a regular class with two teachers. He has always had the support he needs. Staff and classmates are always friendly to him. You can always feel enthusiasm in the teachers, in the staff, principal, office, kids, every where you go people are always happy. The academic level Is great. I just can say good things about this school. All elementary has been a great experience for my kid at Stone Oak..
