I've had experience with SES for 5 years now. There has been a change of administration and our experience with both administrators has been un-gratifying. When our son was bullied, the first principle asked for us to remain 'positive' about the incidents. When there was a change in the administrators, ...  Read more

Sterling Elementary School certainly is no longer an environment where everyone is welcomed. An inexperienced principal has set a confrontational tone which resonates throughout the school. Otherwise...5 stars

Sterling Elementary School fosters an environment where everyone is not only welcome, but encouraged to be herself/himself. There is a definite devotion to the children from the Principal down to the Custodial Staff. I have 3 children here and while we would like to move for other reasons, Sterling Elementary ...  Read more

I am a parent at this school and have been for many years. If I were rating the school based on the teachers, it would be practically perfect. However based on the new administration, my rating is very low. SES used to feel like a big family and the students were definitely the priority. The school ...  Read more
