Excellent school! Enjoyed all my years in attendance at all levels. Teachers were always helpful and nice. A very small town feel where every one joins together for sporting events and when there is sorrow and happiness. The college preparing is at a high level. Staff is always helpful and nice. Not sure I would change a thing for elementary or high school. Enjoyed all the clubs I was in. I always feel safe. Our administration is always on top of things when it comes to the safety of staff and students. I always find our fans are involved in all sports. Our parents are always involved in sports boosters, band parents, post prom activities and fund raisers.

I have gone to Staunton Community Schools since kindergarten. I love Staunton School District and the people who make up this wonderful community. I have had the best education experience at my small-town school. The teachers go above and beyond to make sure every single one of their students is succeeding in all aspects of life, not just with school. They are always there to answer every question or help you with anything you may need. The students at Staunton School have also created an outstanding school experience. I have made life long friends, and all the students are willing to help each other with any type of task. There is always someone at Staunton School to lend a hand to someone in need.
It is a great school. The only bad thing is that there are not a lot of classes to choose from and some the kids are not so good. You can make a lot of new friends here most of the kids are nice! We do have an off-campus lunch, so you can go down to Casey's or go to Hardees. Another great thing is the teacher are super nice here! They help you with whatever you need help on. Some of them are a little sarcastic, but that's what makes it fun!
