Stanton has an excellent school system. The administration teachers and support staff put the kids first and want them to excel in all aspects. The classes are small so the teachers can get the one on one with the students. If a student needs extra help the teachers are there to help. They challenge each student to achieving the best they can do.

This is one of the BEST high schools in the State of Iowa if not in the entire Midwest United States. The interaction between all grades fosters a giving and caring attitude which is found in all the students. The high school and junior high students help and mentor the grade school children. The upper grade school kids (4th 5th and 6th) help the younger grades. The teachers and staff go way above and beyond the requirements to give extra help and attention to each student. And the Superintendent and the Principal both do an outstanding job in orchestrating and leading the entire school. That's why I am commuting just over 100 mile a day to a job in Omaha instead of moving and changing schools.
this is the best school that any parent could ask for to send their child to. we moved last year to another town but because of the quaility of education and team spirit that the town and school employees give we kept our child open enrolled. we are driving 60 miles round trip but it's worth it even if the gas prices are out of this world.
