Stillwater Area Public Schools Reviews

Both the best and the worst of education. The teachers - amazing. ADMINISTRATION = coldest, self-serving individuals. Lowest moral standards. They got huge raises as enrollment declined, while cutting programs and critical staff. Attend a board meeting. It’s a circus show. 4 board members side exclusively with admin, asking no questions. (Everything is decided in advance, away from the public eye, so discussions are mostly for show.) Members that ask questions have been sanctioned/formally investigated. Students and teachers have suffered greatly. Public surveys, over and over, confirm that this crew has “gone rogue,” pursuing their own interests at the expense of our children. A $100M referendum promising improvements became the betrayal of the century. D834 took the money and closed three of our best schools. Business community took a strong stand, but D834 pushed ahead with a plan that caused a deep community rift and mass exodus to other schools.

I loved how most teachers cared about their students. If they realized something was wrong, whether that be academically, or personal, they made it evident that they were there to talk. Although many of the teachers care deeply about their students, others do not. For the most part, everyone is there to dig the successes out of their students. Overall, the Stillwater school district does a great job of providing necessary resources and knowledge in order for every single student to reach their own levels of success. They have an excellent job in having their students feel included. Year after year a new club is created in order for all student to feel as they belong to something bigger than themselves.
The teachers and staff are amazing! They truly prepare students for the future and whats to come after high school, not just how to study for a test.
