Our British Primary philosophy promotes the simple notion that when students enjoy what they`re doing and take an active role in their education, learning becomes a joy and a lifelong endeavor.
We carefully blend an academic program for K-8 students that is grounded in fundamental skills with an attention to each child`s social and emotional development.
Academics at Stanley are built upon our 7 Goals for Learners: Self-Awareness, Collaboration, Respect, Curiosity, Perseverance, Academic Resourcefulness and Lifelong Learning.

I have 2 very different children, both attending Stanley and I can't tell you how much I appreciate and value their experiences there. Stanley grows children in their academics, resourcefulness, critical thinking skills, creativity, social responsibility, and world awareness. Absolutely amazing school.

Two of our kids attended Stanley K-8. They are two very different kids, but navigated a big urban high school with so many assets honed at Stanley: Self-advocacy, independence, ability to collaborate. Great experience with teachers that really care!
