About Stanton Schools

About Our School

Stanton Community Schools believes that the most effective learning comes from a positive, supportive and committed team of family, school, and community. Education is constantly changing, and a successful school must also be willing to change for each student's need.


Our experienced staff come to school each day prepared to help students learn and grow. Their passion for learning encourages students to excel.


At Stanton, our student creed is "My purpose in attending this institution is to constantly better myself, my family, my community, and my country." Everyone works together to reach these goals. The students strive to meet the high expectations of the administration, faculty, staff and community.


The Stanton athletic programs push you to be the best you can be. The coaches stress excellence and performing at your full potential. Our athletic programs practice good sportsmanship and have high expectations to treat others with respect and like a member of a family. We have a history of athletes competing at the state level.


The Stanton fine arts program is a very big part of our school. Students can participate in several different groups such as choir, swing choir, band, jazz band, marching band, all school plays, individual and large group speech, and art. A very high percentage of our student body is involved in one or more of these activities.
