Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year!


The teachers and staff in Stillwater Area Public Schools make an incredible difference in the lives of our students. How do we know this? Because our students have told us! Check out this inspirational back to school video featuring Pony students past and present!

From the Superintendent: "Our students are our focus"

As parents, you've probably been busy gathering up the supplies your kids need for the start of the new school year. We are doing the same thing to ensure our schools are equipped to meet your children's needs! Our students are at the center of all we do, and our focus is on creating schools with support systems that provide them with everything they need to be successful. Check out the first Talk of the District column of the new year.
