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.

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.
