Our Mission

The mission of The Stillwater School is to provide a safe and supportive holistic environment where teaching and learning are an interactive process.

We nurture all aspects of a child’s development and reinforce a sense of community within the classroom.  

We view each student as an individual and provide a curriculum that allows them to reach their maximum potential.

We strive to educate the whole child by encouraging a love of learning, social responsibility and independent thinking within an atmosphere that encourages creativity and confidence.

Stillwater School Players.

The Stillwater Players are beginning work on our 2019 school play: Peter Pan.

Everyone is very excited and we are sure it will be a great production! The performance will be at 1:30 on May 10th at the Nasson Theater, 457 Main Street in Springvale. Tickets are free, but you will need a ticket for entry. For directions or more information ask Amie.

In past years we have presented The Wizard of Oz,
 and the Chocolate Factory, Alice in Wonderland, James and the Giant Peach, The Adventures of Mouse Deer: an Indonesian Folk Tale and Who's in Rabbit's House: A Masai Tale.

All shows were great successes. It has been inspiring to see the school children working together as a team towards a common goal with such great results. Those that performed and attended were rewarded!
