Big school, some of the teachers are bad teachers and not doing their job , some teachers in K and first grade really don’t help the kids , nobody cares about that although ethe school and the Cupertino district now about than.principal leave every year , no community atmosphere. Nothing special at thes school, I would choose a different school if I knew that before.
Our impression is that the school administration and many (not all, but many) of the teachers simply do not care about the students. They got their jobs that give tons of holidays (a week in the fall, another week over Thanksgiving, two weeks over Christmas/New Year's, another week in the spring and six weeks over the summer - in addition to all the usual holidays interspersed throughout the school year) and a pretty good paycheck to boot and anything they can do to minimize the amount of work they have to do in return they will do - even at the expense of the kid's education.My wife went to this school when she was growing up. She cannot believe how much it has changed since she was there. She used to be a "proud" graduate of what was considered a top school in the area - now she is embarrassed and frustrated.
Too academic, doesn't see the individual needs. I wish the school was less focus on it's score and more on the kids.
Our daughter attended kinder at Stocklmeir Elementary this year and we are not very happy with the school. Initially, some of the parents told us that the school is too large and that impacts quality - we were not sure how this would be the case but what we've learned is that this is true. The school is very impersonal due to the size of the school. The teacher in our classroom had additional duties at the school district, so we would have substitute teachers at least 1-2 days a week and this happened throughout the year. I realize the need for a teacher to get trained, but this should not impact an entire class of students. Because of all the substitute teachers, we felt that the kids in the class did not really have continuity with teachers and we kept getting mixed feedback from our daughter about the quality of the various subs and their teaching methods. Lesson learnt - find out at the beginning of the year if the teacher in your kids classroom has extended training/district duties and make sure you raise this with the school/district as this can impact students quite severely. Our classroom did at most 1-2 field trips and all other "trips" were local at the school or at the neighboring park. We talk to our friends in other schools in santa clara and cupertino and they all have real field trips. The PTA does not seem to take an active role in funding things that are meaningful for kids. I attended a couple of PTA meetings and the items requested/funded are mostly for upkeep of school facilities vs things that are meaningful for students. I wish I could participate on a more regular basis to do something about this. I feel that this is because of the size of the school and the impersonal nature of the school. Parking and dropoff is a pain as there is very limited parking and you have to dropoff your kid in the classroom vs a supervised dropoff area like some other schools.
