School Reviews

  • Recommended March 19, 2015 - sometimes they're pretty mean to my child like sometimes the teachers only listen to only one child then they go to blame the chlid that was involved as well when they dont even ask the child what really happened. I would really recommend Stonegate Elementary School. - Posted by Parent
