My experience at this school was horrible, I only had one good teacher the whole year the others didn’t really seem to care about there students. I was bullied and harassed multiple times, when I reported it to the principle he didn’t seem to care an never addressed it.
As a former student of Stover Middle School, I have nothing good to say about the place. The sanitation in the school is subpar, with roach carcasses clearly visible in ceiling lights, and the competency of the staff is rather poor. Teachers are generally either disinterested or negative about their job, with a few star exceptions, and they largely rely on control tactics to keep their students orderly. They tend to become very frustrated and resort to yelling incessantly at their students, often adopting unsavory attitudes toward them. My sincerest hope is that the few good teachers here find new jobs in better schools.
We love this school. Our three children all attended and learned much with the careful attention of several teachers. Administration was quick to assist if any issues ever arose. Highly recommended Stover.
Out of the 12 years that Stover has been open, I have had children enrolled for 9. My son was the first class and he attended from 3rd through 8th. My oldest daughter went 6-8 and I have a current 7th grader(with 1 left to go). I have been extremely pleased with the teachers and admin. The band program is probably one of the best in the country hands down! My daughter graduated as a junior at LEHS & was accepted to USC thanks to her head start at Stover. My son is in his 3rd year college. All thanks to some excellent teachers- who are STILL there! We did have 1 teacher who was not great but she was a military wife and has been long gone. I have seen many very very bright students go through and love stover because of the teachers. They were challenged and supported by the talented teaching staff and all did very well through high school, taking honors and AP courses. I believe that most people who write reviews are dissatisfied and after reading these I felt I needed to share. I am very involved in the schools and my kids friends. Much of it is what you make of it.- I wish they would teach more etiquette and I wish parents would teach more respect and manners. Just sayin...
