History


DrawingStockwell Elementary School opened its doors in 1971 as an open concept building in a traditional setting. During the first seven years the staff experimented with a variety of instructional methods. In 1978 the instructional methods changed. The building instruction was based on a more traditional approach with the primary remaining self-contained while grades four through six followed a departmental approach. The process was interrupted by the formation of middle schools in 1985. 

Stockwell was then transformed into a kindergarten through fifth grade school. Instruction, however, remained primarily self-contained in kindergarten through third grade with departmentalization in grades four and five. Special education classes were limited to EH and MMH classes. 

Now, Stockwell is an elementary school, kindergarten through fifth grade, with special education classes offered in many areas. It has a full day kindergarten program. Our enrollment is increasing, and is currently over 600 students.
