Very focused on test scores, which are high primarily because of high socioeconomic makeup. No GATE programming, and differentiation is minimal to none, meaning more advanced students are often bored.

Excellent School..Tachers are very involved and motivated to help and teach the children. Children are also involved in the classroom and out. There's also tremendous help from parents.

While there are some wonderful teachers at Stanley there are also those that would benefit from yearly reviews and evalautions - and moved out when necessary. Not much action is taken when a student or parent needs extra help - or even 15 minutes of an administrator's time - once a year! If your child ...  Read more

Stanley really is a great school. The principal is fully involved as well as the vice principal. They are always trying to keep everyone involved (including teachers). They do everything in their power to keep kids safe and out of trouble. The only bad thing I would say is that sometimes the teachers ...  Read more

Someone commented on the fact that music was lacking at Stanley. Well, Bob Athade runs one of the best music programs I have ever seen.

Good academic program, lacking in music but good in sports and other opportunities. Lot depends on individual efforts of the students and parents. Quality of academic programs sometimes is more reflrctive of the kind of students in each grade. Some teachers are young others experienced

I love this school! As a student, the expectations are quite high, but even if you can't reach the goal yourself, peer tutoring is available, and my teachers are also willing to help. There's a program for new kids, so they won't get lost, and the music program ranks in the top 100 schools in California ...  Read more

Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled.

The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.
