Stuttgart - School Report Question and Answers

What letter grade (ranging from A, excellent, to F, fail) would you assign to this school based on your overall experience? Would you choose it again?

D Retrospect is always very clear, but if we had a different option, we would not have attended this school. - Jan 2021

C. The instruction is generally good, but the school is exceedingly rigid in implementing rules. In our experience, it seems that systems matter more than students, which is unfortunate. It is not a warm place for parents, nor does the school check on how families with known issues are doing. When we withdrew our daughter from 10th grade, I got a cursory two sentence goodbye email from the principal and a short email from the registrar that I could pick up her record [we had not been problem parents]. During that incident or others, when teachers knew our other child was having issues, no one from the school reached out to check on us. Even when we advocated for better support for kid 1 or kid 2, we were denied. I would not it choose again. It stands in stark contrast with the DOD high school, which was supportive and warm. The DOD SHS principal called us several times to see if everything was all right, and the counselor made real suggestions how to meet our daughter's interests while leaving time for her health issues. - Sep 2020
