    We feel this school is fairly biased. It's a small town school and if you are an 'outsider' you don't feel included. We are not from here we are more cultured and that's just the way it is. We are not a local and we are made to feel this way. We feel the PTO is very biased as well and there is a lack of overall parental involvement. We don't think you can get more biased. Our children both had honor roll and at least you can't take that away.

    My child is in the first grade. His teachers make learning fun and relevant. He loves them and wants to 'go and live with them'. I think that tells you how much the faculty and staff are involved with the students. It's a great school!

    My son has attended K and now first grade at Stone Elem. The teachers have been completley committed to his education. He has ADHD and they have worked 100% with my husband and I. The whole staff shows great leadership skills.

    It is the best place to work. The staff and the parents are all trying to work together to make this a good place for the students to learn. We have a great principal. She is very caring for the staff and students.
