    10! I just called to ask a question about my niece's Flat Stanley project and her teacher was accessible and actually answered the phone! She was very kind and we had a great conversation. I have visited Stormonth before and I know that both of my nieces love school and are getting a wonderful education here.

    I'm very pleased with Stormonth Elementary my son is in K4 this year and he has learned so much already and he's very excited to go to school every day (even on weekends). I am very happy to know that he is learning and that this school has so many things to offer. Education is very important and this school is diong a great job academically. Not to mention the diversity and allowing students to use their unique social skills as well as introducing them to 'No put Downs' teaching students to always be kind to others. Overall I'm greatly appreciated in having my child attend this school. -Thanks to Stormonth Staff-

    best elementary school this state has to offer. great teachers diverse and safe environment for all students

    I rate this school as excellent! My daughter is currently in the K4 program. Stormonth is a wonderful school with a friendly environment. They offer so many things to their students starting at K4 such as Spanish and Music. Considering that this is one of the best areas to live in the Milwaukee area and considered an 'upscale area' I feared that 'what class you are in' was going to be a problem. I didn't want my child to have the feeling of wanting to 'keep up'. It appears that education is put first before what class you are in. This is also a fairly diverse school and seems to encourage learning of other cultures. My daughter's class has about 4 different ethnicities in her class and it is a wonderful experience! I am so glad that my daughter has the priveledge of attending this school!

    it is an amazing expierience for my chidren and everyone who goes there its amazing

    Overall Stormonth is a great school in the academic sense. However I think there is sometimes too much emphasis placed on money and image. All students should be given the same treatment whether they live in the classiest neighborhoods of Fox Point or in the roughest neighborhoods of Milwaukee. Just because a child comes from a poor family does not mean that the child's parents are not capable of intelligent thought or that they are not seriously committed to their child's education!
