    "I have been reading a lot of reviews about the schools in FL and I keep seeing the same complaints at the majority of the schools. Basically, I see a lot of complaints that the schools are so focused on the FCAT that the other aspects of school life are neglected, and a lack of respect toward the children and parents. Sadly, Stowers is no exception. My general feeling toward this school is that the children are basically there to score highly on the FCAT and make the school look good. This school is very lacking in SUBSTANCE. They teach to the test. There are no holiday parties, recess only 2x/week, assigned seats at lunch, and very few extra activities. I feel so bad for the kids there. We moved to FHR from Ohio and know what schools SHOULD be like. They were ahead academically, and yet there was amost never any mention of the Ohio Proficiency Test. Kids should be able to act their age, be curious, and ENJOY learning. The kids here are really missing out on a well rounded education and they are too young at this age to be stressed about some stupid test. I don't think many of the parents in this area have spent much time investigating what really goes on in this school."

    "We are a military family and moving is common for us. I have to say I am very pleased with Stowers Elementary. My son was much more advanced than other children in the class and his teacher really met his needs as far as his level was concerned. For a public school I feel Stowers does a great job attending to the needs of the children. Lets not forget the first and foremost educators for any children should be their parents. Teachers can only do so much and if the family unit can't do their job with their own children perhaps they need to re-evaluate their priorities. Definitely would recommend this school!"

    "Stowers is a wonderful school. The negative comments on this website are ridiculous. I have 3 children in this school and have had absolutely no problem communicating with the teachers. All the teachers and staff care about the children. The comment about the AGP testing is common to Hillsborough County Schools not just Stowers. I could not be happier about the education my children have received and are receiving at Stowers."

    "Stowers is a very good school. It is not perfect, as no schools are but the principal and assistant principal are committed to giving the students a quality environment with excellent teaching. I love that Stowers has a warm feel and has more of a varied population that reflects the real world. After all, the world is made up of all types of people from all ethnicities and backgrounds. This is one of the reasons I prefer to send my daughter to this school over the other elementary schools in Fishhawk. My child is in the AGP program and I can not say ENOUGH about how fabulous the teacher of this program is. For others that have been disappointed, I can not speak, but my daughter is doing quite well there. She has been there for 3 years and is passing all the rigorous tests with flying colors. Also, as for students not getting tested in a timely fashion for gifted programs, I encourage the parent who wants the process to go faster to seek private evaluation. It is a PUBLIC school for goodness sake. The staff must seek to educate all children there, which means school psychologists are testing a great many children for various reasons, not just gifted. LOVE STOWERS!"

    "We have been at Stowers for a couple of years and the teachers and staff are not professional. They fail to return calls in a timely manner and do not work around the parent's schedule. Children with specific needs are not encourage to meet standards and teachers do not work with families to address these needs! This is our last year!!"
