10 Parent Reviews for Ernest Stapleton Elementary School

This is our first year at this school and initially I felt like this was a good move. If I could give 5 stars to just my kids teachers I would. The teachers have been amazing and communicate well. As for the administration they are HORRIBLE! They are like a pack of wolves who look for anything at all ...  Read more

I felt the need to post after seeing all these negative reviews. We moved here from Pennsylvania in 2012 where my son started 3rd grade. Although the classrooms are over crowded, both his 3rd and 4th grade teachers took the initiative to challenge him by assigning him advanced homework or recommending ...  Read more

Stapleton is very crowded, and unfortunately that affects every aspect of the education offered there (hence, the three star rating). The teachers were excellent, but under a lot of pressure. For example, my son's 3rd grade class had 27 kids in it, two of whom seemed emotionally disturbed (according ...  Read more

Second year with this school. First year was a huge transition, second year got much better. I agree with the other posts, parents do not feel welcome. This school works more with the average student and puts no effort into the students who need to be challenged.

The school has programs to assist students in need for reading, etc....and is wonderful if you don't have any teacher issues. The administration sides with the teacher, even when they are in the wrong and treats you badly if you voice your opinion. the office staff is rude and make you feel unwanted ...  Read more

My son began attending Stapleton in January, 2007 as a 3rd grader. As with any elementary school, the most important thing is the teacher, the principal and the staff. Stapleton has a number of excellent teachers that go the extra mile. The principal is excellent and interacts with the parents. There ...  Read more

I'm new to this school, and I feel very disconnected to the school. The calender that comes home only has 2 weeks worth of info, and the web site doesn't have much info either.

It seems to have alot along with Excellent Parent involvement. The activities are packed and the parent teacher confrences are well attended. The School is also well equiped. (Needs some additional landscaping)
