@ mike. The only reason the kids are passing is because the school district lowered the bar so low any child looks like a genius!!!!

You're personal attacks and comments on people are uncalled for. If you have nothing constructive to say, you get off the net! Your above comments are completely assinine, mean-spirited and childish. I'm embarrassed I'm even responding to you idiotic comments but I am.

The Stow system actually does a really nice job. I have been very impressed by the quality of the educators. Yes, some of the buildings are older and need some attention, but I think the people working in them are very dedicated teachers and administrators. Thank you to all of you that have worked hard to make a good school system that reflects well on the community. Thanks also to the many people that have volunteered and help with school functions and athletics, such as you, Kim DiSanto. People like you are a positive influence on a community and make it a better place.
