Great teachers. I have a child in 8th grade and one coming into 6th grade. No problems. Wonderful teachers. kids love them. If your child is interested in music. They have one awesome band teacher. She went to Stanley and her love for music is great. She has really made my daughter love for music come out. She loves it and now I am looking at my 2nd child starting.

a. All the teachers have graduated from high school and are great to work with. They teach their subject well and stay on subject. b. As a student, you get to choose either spanish and art, band, or chorus. You have your choice, but you can't do all three. Stanley Middle has basketball, football, soccer, track, golf, softball, baseball, and volleyball. You can pick from all those choices and have fun practicing and playing with the team even though sixth graders are not allowed to play. c. Acedemic and athletic awards are great. Period. d. The facilities (keep in mind that some of the kids parents attended this school and it has not been renovated since) is fair, but at least they have great janitors that thake their jobs very seriously! e. The level of parent involvement is great! They have a PTO (Parent Teacher Organization) that helps set up super school dances and awesome fundraisers!
