    I wanted to indicate in this review specifically Mrs. Cummings Kim 1st grader teach. Mrs. Cummings is what I call a teacher for life a real educator. She comes every day to class for the children she cares for their education well being got to know each chid with her/his needs. Mrs. Cummings knows how to motivate them as individuals and as a team.

    Starting this year my son started going to Stocklmeir school and is in second grade. It has been an incredibly positive experience for us and our son because he is suddenly so focused in his education and is so motivated to put lot of hard work without any push from me. I would credit his class teacher Ms. Roberts for the encouragement and channeling him in the right direction! I would highly recommend this school.

    Through out the years with my kids in Stocklmeir I had seen teachers that have been tired from teaching. They become indiferent. One of those teachers done damage to my daughter's desire to study. And good teachers especially male teachers are lacking.

    My first grader had a wonderful teacher this year. He is kind patient and knowledgeable. He also encouraged the kids to learn through technology and it turned out to be quite fun and efficient. Each kid received a class book with all the good memories throughout the year. We feel blessed to have had such an awesome teacher.

    One parent asked why this school is in Sunnyvale but is in the Cupertino School District...it depends on where a person lives in Sunnyvale that dictates the district. My daughter is in first grade here and has been going here since Kindergarten. I love both of her teachers so far. Some of the class kids that are disruptive are dealt with fairly and immediately. I for one am very happy about that. My daughter shouldn't be sidetracked by someone else's kid if they're disrupting the classroom. Anyhow we pay the property taxes and live in the area so it works out that our home school is an excellent one.

    Ok for some - unacceptable for others. Stocklmeir appears to have solid teachers and a well run program but quickly identifies children that needs extra help (or might bring their scores down) and attempts to "encourage" them out of the school. Cupertino district has a reputation for great test scores but it's because they make it nearly impossible for a kids with even minor learning challenges to want to be there. We didn't want to believe this reputation but unfortunately found it to be all too true. As soon as our student was identified with special needs they quickly scrutinized her every move and she spent more time in the principals office then in class for the most minor of issues. We got the message.

    My daughter loves to go to school everyday and she is learning well. I like all the activities this school has running club music arts etc.

    This school like all the other Cupertino Union Schools teaches to standardized tests. Unfortunately it's school with approx. 1000 students. Principal is very good (albeit stretched). Teacher quality...very good. Parent involvement the PTA tends to be a ladies club run mostly by Asian moms.

    Great school very nice teachers & friendly environment. You feel safe to leave your kids here. I strongly recommend this school for any parents who wants to live in Sunnyvale & send kids to Cupertino schools.

  • (4 years ago)

    why does this school show up in "sunnyvale" but it's part of the cupertino school district and why does the sunnyvale school district have such a low overall school (7)? Seems like it should be higher? Is this school a factor in the Cupertino (10) score or the Sunnyvale (7) score?

  • (5 years ago)

    I think that this school rocks. The PTA works alot to help the school improve and the combination classes actualy help students become friendlier with other grades(not bossing the other grade around just because your older than them). Over all I thnk I would give this school 5 stars.

  • (5 years ago)

    I love the organization skills and the way the school in run for having over 1100 students!

    Their Teachers Rocks and their are great with the children...

  • (5 years ago)

    20-30% parents are very active PTA the rest just are riding along... Great school despite the size. But beware if you are think about just moving here for the school look at your own child very carefully. If the school board voted for the new propose budget a ratio of 30 students to one teacher starting from 1st grade may not be for every child. It's a lot easier for a child to fall 'through the crack' then you think.

    Despite overcrowding this wonderful school with rich diversity of students rocks every year in achievement.

  • (5 years ago)

    It's a great diverse environment for the kids. Lot of new staff in lower grades this year so have to wait and watch how this year is going to be but from 3rd grade onwards homework/projects and teaching methods are fairly standard. Principal is great and handles very well what is probably the largest elementary school in CUSD. PTA is very active so there's plenty of opportunity for parents to get involved in every aspect of their child's school life. More good quality after school programs & a CDC that is proportional to school size would be great.

  • (5 years ago)

    Well the school is not bad not perfect only wish that I have the teachers could be more friendly they do not smile much....and they do not have after school programs to help kids as many other schools have
