Stanley is the BEST school ever! My children are adopted and came from a very tragic living situation. Because of the neglect they encountered, having clear direction and an organized school is very important. Stanley is not just organized/regimented, they really care about their students. Principal Mrs. Johnson knows every student's name as well as their parents. She tells each kid she loves them which is obviously with her gregarious nature. Each teacher has a high level of experience with various child personalities and strive to teach each child in a way they can understand. Classes are on the smaller side which enables them to do this. I can't say enough wonderful things about Stanley. Some children need more oversight and compassion. This school has both.

I love Stanley Elementary School for my young kindergartener! The principal is extremely dedicated, kind, and wonderful to all the children. She has a fun personality and knows all the kids by name. She is absolutely incredible, and the school is lucky to have her. My son's teacher, Ms. Adams, is also amazing! She is the perfect kindergarten teacher, and my son absolutely adores her. She is patient, caring, and consistent with all of her children. They both do an outstanding job!

This school is not great. The kids are mean. Academics are not great.

Stanley is the best school I have ever encountered, They are professionals and kind. They know what is really important for a child to be prepared to learn. The staff seemed to be from heaven or and blessed by God. My child is doing so much better there, then anywhere else. They listened to me as the parent of the child and did not assume they knew more about my child then I know. This was refreshing and a sign of highly educated and trained staff.

My son and daughter went to Stanley and both prospered from the wonderful, highly skilled and compassionate teachers, assistants, staff and parent volunteers. Both of them were able to get additional educational help as well as one on one personal growth help and both are now doing great at Jason Lee and Stadium High School. I have to give credit to that to the wonderful guidance given to them by Stanley staff and their caring ways that bring together staff and family involvement. All and all, Stanley should be rated one of the top schools for all of the efforts they put forth to help our children move forward in their academic lives with the confidence that they can do whatever they set their minds to as long as they try hard, believe in themselves and do not allow any obstacles to stand in their way.
