Kitty Stone Elementary School Ratings & Reviews
Kitty Stone is the very best school you will find. A well trained and caring faculty is in place and the well being of each child is the main focus.Students excell at Kitty Stone.My children and two grandchildren attended Kitty Stone and they were well prepared for high school.
A huge disappointment! I attended Jacksonville City School from kindergarten to 12th grade. I had no issues with it growing up, it was school. However when my child started attending Kitty Stone, it was a huge let down. He was repeatedly bullied and the staff at Jacksonville City Schools don't take bullying seriously, they treat it as "kids being kids", and I would go so far as to say that the elitist attitude in the Jacksonville's school system only fuels the bullying. We moved to the Weaver school district and my child, who used to beg me not to make him go to school, actually loves school now. Bullying is taken seriously and children are allowed to focus on learning.
Kitty Stone Elementary School is certainly not the best Elementary School in this area. The leadership in administration is severly lacking. They are unorganized to say the least. The front office staff are among the rudest individuals I have ever encountered in a public educational institution. Parents are not valued as resources and are restricted from participating in the learning community. The teachers are OLD and need to retire. All you hear is be quiet and stop talking......sad to see what has happened to the educative process! Children should be excited about attending school. This school certainly has a prison like environment not conducive to the active learning process. Send your kids or grand kids to one of the Calhoun County schools that actually promote a positive learning atmosphere!
My two children have been going to Kitty Stone less than a year and their progress has been amazing. We moved from a school in another state that was said to be the "best" around but we had a lot of catching up to do to be on the level with Kitty Stone! My son has gone from reading 20 words per minute to 60 in just 4 months! I can't say enough great things about these teachers and their love for the students.
This school goes above and beyond what I expected for my son. Great teachers, staff and friends.
