Attended this school, it''s a complete mess. Bullying in the school is the worst problem, followed by the lack of good administration. Some teachers are good but a lot of them do not really care. Food is bad, once my sausage biscuit still had a frozen spot. Most classrooms are too warm and the hallways feel very dusty. This school needs a lot of improvement.
I enjoy hearing my daughter come home from school with a smile on her face. She is a ESE/IND unit, she tells me about the Paras mostly how they help her even make her laugh. She said, Mom they are so crazy in a good way. Her confidence is definitely boosted and thank you for making my daughter feel comfortable while she''s learning.
This schools food is bad that's about all except some teachers call out the student in the middle of the class.
This school is terrible the teachers do not care about the students one bit. Very few actually try to help them. This school needs to be changed from the inside out.
School is trash administration is crap they are very non experienced they are illiterate they the student care is bad I know from experience I get wrote up for stuff I did not even do and it's just dumb.
The teacher there think they are better than the students especially the 8th grade teachers the 6th and 7th grade teachers are fine it's just the 8th grade teachers if your child is below 8th grade you guys might want to switch there to a different school before they get to 8th grade let me not even get started with the teachers in Rm:229-230. Those teachers are the worst 2 there they are rude to the students and they will call you in the middle of class just to try to embarrass and humiliate your child listen to me guys they are the worst and that's all I have to say about Stambaugh Middle School.
Love the ESE teachers and Paras. They are super awesome with our son and are easy to work with. I have seen much improvement over the last two years he has been with them.
I love my teachers and the Paras. So Far, lol! They help me understand and learn things I never thought was possible. I like my school but could do less without the bad kids never getting into trouble though. I've seen my teacher try but they seem to always get send back like they didn't just tell the teacher off for asking them to turn the volume down on their phone. Yes, this happens all the time.
Great school for children who needs improvement in their learning skills, great activities for children to participate and what I can say about the level of parent involve in school, I'm not sure, just because I'm new to this school, what I can say about this school is the fast respond and children care is excellent expecially with the couselor and the parent communication is excellent, great school....
