My experience at Stonewall has been slightly less than excellent. The deficiencies I've experienced are district-wide administrative-level issues that boil down to the fact that teachers are stretched very thin, accountability is lacking, and there is too much focus on test scores and not enough individualized learning. Communication also is an issue. The district has many great programs available, but many parents don't know about them. At the end of the day, I feel heard at Stonewall and my student with an IEP is thriving. No school will ever be perfect, but that's pretty darn good.

I was a substitute teacher at Stonewall Elementary and could not have had a more positive experience from office personnel, the custodian, the cafeteria workers, and my neighboring teachers. In the last 15 years I've been to every school in Fayette County. I also felt the students were positive, polite, and willing to learn, and were co-operative with a sub they've never seen before as I typical sub in high schools.I recommend the school highly.

I wanted to love this school. I wish I did. I have a now 3rd grader who has attended since he started Kindergarten. His initial K teacher was horrible. She had distinct favorites and set up an environment that encouraged bullying. I did, thankfully, find the counselor and principal receptive in addressing these issues. Though it is concerning that she continues to teach (tenure). His other teachers, thankfully, have been better than the K teacher, but have still been a mixed bag. Communication is inconsistent between teachers. Some have been great, some have relied solely on my child to relay messages. There are great afterschool programs (ESP, tennis, science club, chess club, to name a few). The school makes a strong effort to be inclusive, but my son has also experienced institutional racism, though I know this isn't exclusive to Stonewall. Stonewall is supposed to be one of the "good" schools in Lexington. I'm just not sure I buy that.

Stonewall has a lot going for it. It's in a great neighborhood, has a charismatic principal with a long tenure, and an above average degree of parent involvement. As the parent of several children who attend, the weighty disappointment to me is the lack of "individuality" for unique learning strengths and challenges. I suspect this is due in large part to the budget constraints placed on educators. Still, our children only get one chance to learn the skills they acquire in the elementary years, upon which they build a lifetime of knowledge. There seems to be more emphasis on pushing students through curriculum than in ensuring they actually learn it. In our desperation to engage students, have we forgotten about challenging them? Teachers (at least in some cases) seem to take the easier approach of using trendy literature as the primary textbook for certain courses of study. Perhaps this is becoming common across the board. Nevertheless, I would love to see this school take the lead in collaborating with parents -- teachers working to engage families AND students. I see a promising mix of faculty, staff and students that just might be the ones to take on the challenge.
