Stoughton Area School District Reviews

My student with dyslexia started SASD w/ low test scores. She is now a straight A 8th grader. I have seen Staff go to great lengths for their students. They use compassion, nurturing and teamwork to help all the kids. Don’t rely on test scores; we chose this District 3 years ago and are SO glad we did!
The real feedback comes from my daughter, who used to cry about going to school and was failing her academics. Since coming to Stoughton, her grades are excellent, she has wonderful friends, is involved in many extra curricular activities and is HAPPY. It is 2019 as I write this, and I expect our District to keep making forward progress!

I attended school through this system from kindergarten through senior year and I had a great time. I had incredibly dedicated and hard working teachers who I learned a lot from. I felt that when I reached out for support whether it be for help with homework or with mental health issues that I would receive the help I needed. I always appreciated that there was a great variety of clubs, sports options, and other after school activities available to the students, it truly felt like there was a club for everybody. These clubs also offered travel opportunities and I ended up participating in a trip to San Francisco. The trip was very well organized and I felt looked out for the entire time. Overall most every experience I've had with this school district has been wonderful.
Stoughton's school district has a pretty close-knit community so meeting people, finding your way around, and knowing your teachers is pretty easy. The school also provides plenty of opportunities for extra-curricular activities and encourages kids to be involved in at least one thing. However, some departments at the high school have much more caring teachers who tend to student's needs compared to others, and students should have more say in things.
