Worst school my child has ever attended.. My daughter is in a fourth/fifth grade combo class and has went from a child who loved school to hating it and getting in trouble all the time. Her teacher is moody and depending on her mood is the amount of homework the children will get... My daughter frequently ...  Read more

This is our second year at this school. My child is in fourth grade right now and is very frustrated. My child's perception is that the teacher seems to favor girls over boys. He seems to be in trouble all the time for not showing his work and getting detentions for the same reason. He is very discourage ...  Read more

We have had 2 very organized, structured teachers (3rd and 4th grades). They are nice, and experienced, but they seem to care only about test preparation instead of what the child is ready to learn. In other words, if your kid is a slow learner, too bad. They are still given the same work as the other ...  Read more

I moved my daughter from private school to Joe Stefani a year ago. I was very nervous about the transition and was not sure what to expect as far a teacher quality.

My son has attended Stefani for 2 years now. This will be his last year since he's in 5th grade. The teachers all seem to care about tests and how to get the best test scores for the school. I am not really thrilled with that at all & the PTC meetings are a big JOKE. They don't care what U think - it's ...  Read more

a brand new school, great leadership... however the teachers leave a lot to be desired. They dont seem to care about the kids or their education. Test prep and test scores are the main goal. Some of the teachers forget that they are yelling at 8 and 9 year olds. There is potential, however, ...  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.
