We wish we had gone to a different school.
We are going into our 3rd year at SSF. We are very happy here and look forward to another great year. Our daughters have done well here. They love the discovery labs a lot. The work they do in art is amazing!!!! I frame all of their pieces and have their sculptures on the mantle. We love the PE teacher and the STREAM program is very challenging and engaging. All of the teachers and staff are caring, highly qualified people. We cant wait for what 3rd and 6th grade brings!
Great, small school tucked away in a beautiful area. Nice, fair principal and the staff is caring. The academics are standard, public school. But the stream program, music, computers, PE and art programs are the highlights of the school. We are very impressed by the art our son has done with the art teacher.
Pros: 1. Small class size (16-22 in the lower grades) 2. Well funded compared to other public schools. The school asks for a hefty donation from each family at the beginning of the year, and most families comply. Cons 1. Lack of before/after school care- If you are a dual income family, be prepared to STRESS like no other on what to do with your child while you work, especially after school and during the summer. The only option right now is to be bussed to the community center, which closes at 5 and very few children do it. 2. Lack of differentiation- I agree with previous posts that teachers have low tolerance for children who are "out of the box." Same with bright students- they will likely get bored. 3. Ipads- I wish it would serve a more useful purpose than to "babysit." Parents spent so much money on these, and students are playing games while the teacher focuses on a small group of students. In regards to Stepfordville, to each his own.
