Coming from a local catholic school I am so glad that we switched. The teachers handle things with the resources that they do have. My daughter excelled after being held back in catholic school and my son learned more than he did in two years of preschool. This school district may have a bad reputation but that comes from the high school. The elementary is great!

These teacher do a great job with the over crowded class rooms lack of supplies they have alot hard working teachers like Ms Raymond Ms Koger Mr Vete Mr.Minear Ms DiMichele. These teacher really care & love theae children the do their best to educate these children.
i had to pull my son out of this school they said he was a problem child. He now goes to propel montour and is a straight A student and absolutely loves going to school.
This school has a very dedicated staff!
I couldn't be happier with sto-rox elementry school! This is my sons first year (kindergarten) and the teachers and staff are wonderful!
This is the most disorganized school I know. The principal is poor and absent all the time. What a joke! The kids can't read and the teachers are really bad.
I always felt my children did well at this school district until this year.The middle school lacks organization!I sure feel sorry for all the 5 graders this year with all the changes.Good luck teachers!POOR CHILDREN!yeh right no child left behind!
What a sad lack of involvement from the central office administration. An accountant trouble-shoots problems instead of an involved superintendent and building leadership is sketchy. Children are not well-served here.
Very poor reading and math training. Pittsburgh Business Times ranks this school 103 out of 105 schools in the County. Very little academic rigor for children and weak leadership.
Many of the parents send their children to any other school but Sto-Rox Elementary because the staff is not well-trained. The teachers seem to loaf around a lot and there is not a strong focus on kids here.
The Phys Ed sports and playground activities are very poor. There are no extra activities for energetic children.
The adults in this school (security) are mean tot he kids and talk about their families and homes. The lack of privacy for children is horrible. My child is promised privacy and respect at the charter school (Propel) where he will go in Spetember 2009. Thank God he got in.
No one in the school talks about how to help kids. The school is run over by bad politics and power struggles. The focus on children is poor and egos run wild here.
The school is new clean bright and energetic. The administration is consistent and kind. They really work for and with the children! I love SRE!
The school has gotten alot better this year more concerned with the children's learning reading and math scores not to mention the no hands on or bullying.
