My daughter is in the first grade. The school is technologically advanced and I find the curriculum to be strong. Teaching staff I have encountered are excellent and new leadership team are forward-thinking.
Teachers and staff are great! Timely communicatiion. They have had an increase in the Spanish-speaking students and unfortunately, they did not have enough teachers/staff at the time to accommodate. They have recently hired specialized skilled staff to address the demand and I am optimistic that this will eventually increase their state standards scores.
My son started at Stony Creek this year in Kindergarten. He was not reading or doing math when he started. As we end the school year, my son is reading at a first grade level and doing multiplication! I am extremely impressed with the curriculum, the teachers and the activities at this school. My son is even playing chess!!!! Anyone that is considering this school please give it a chance. I have to admit that initially I wasn't sure it was going to be a good fit but I am very happy.
Stony Creek is an amazing school. One of the things that I love the most is the diversity! I am pleased to know that my son is exposed to such great diversity! Another thing that I am very pleased with is the Principal, Mr. Hollingsworth. I've observed him during school events and am very pleased with the way he manages the school and children.The school has many extracurricular activities. Their recent Art Fair was very impressive! It is a big school, but over all it is clean and organized. Academically, I think they are right on. The school staff is friendly and look out for the student's best interest. My son was struggling with reading and was immediately recommended to the Reading Club. His reading has improved significantly! Overall, the school is great and I am very happy. There are 2 things that bother me. 1st, the lack of A/C in the primary grades classrooms. It gets miserably hot during hot days. I would love for the school district to look into this matter and install a/c units in that wing of the school. The 2nd is their before/after school program. It is wonderful, but very expensive. My monthly fee is pretty much the same as the tuition offered at a private school.
