Stillwater Elementary School Ratings & Reviews
This school is wonderful. I love the location, the teachers, the staff, the principal, it's a wonderful and comfortable atmosphere. There are people from all walks of life, when you are at this school and at an after school event, you can feel the positivity of the community of this town in this school. I had previously lived in a neighboring community up on the ridge and It was not this same community feeling. Nor were the teachers the same, there was a stressfulness in the air for all of the grades. I don't know if it was the area, the overcrowding or the lack of diversity (diversity of income, not culture) the school was uncomfortable. I will say this, my children love Stillwater and the teachers. When it's time for teacher appreciation they are 200% on board, they want to celebrate and thank everyone including the bus drivers and maintenance staff. That has to mean something.
Fantastic school, fantastic staff. My boys have been enrolled since Kindergarten (now 3rd grade) and they have nothing but great things to say about everyone they're in contact with. As a parent, this school has exceeded all of my expectations. The teachers are approachable, the staff is firm but fair, and community is actively involved. The other review about kids being "forced out" is internet hogwash. The school theme is "kind words and actions," and anti bullying and discrimination is actively taught and enforced. I speak with a lot of the parents, as it's a small community, and I've never (not once) heard anyone have a bad thing to say about the school. It's wonderful.
If your child is able to sit through class, tests well, and is socially adjusted, then this is the school for you. But if your child is active, easily distracted, and has difficulty socializing, then be prepared to be 100% proactive in the success of your child, and expect to battle negative reinforcement - not just from other students, but from adults as well. This school, and to a small extent the social culture, does not support students with learning difficulties unless you get someone to slap a label on your child, even when they don't really need one.
My daughter attends Stillwater and we have been very happy. She has shown great improvement over the year, and has a very enthusiastic and effective teacher. The principal is very nice and involved in all the events. The events have been great as well, especially the annual STEM night.
Very poorly run school, kids who are the race , religion, or different are forces out.
