Stadium Drive Elementary is one of four elementary schools that services students in preschool through fourth grade in Boardman, Ohio. Upon entering the school, parents, students and staff will read a sign "Through these doors walk the greatest staff and students in the word." This statement provides all of our students, staff, and guests with the high expectations that are set forth for everyone who enters into our school. Upon entering the school, our students are greeted with a hello and smile from the principal and school staff. We try to make every child in our school feel safe, secure, accepted, and loved.

Stadium Drive students are empowered to take ownership of their learning, social, and overall academic success. The children are encouraged by their teachers to be life-long learners through their daily activities and lessons. The students are familiar with our school wide positive behavior program, where we expect all of our students to show their Spartan SHIELD (Support, Honesty, Involved, Excellence, Love, Determination).

Our dedicated staff and students demonstrate these expectations daily and are recognized for showing their SHIELD. Their actions, which help create and sustain a positive environment for learning allow the opportunity for all of our children to become successful in and outside of the classroom. Students are recognized weekly on the announcements; constant positive communication is made by the principal and teachers throughout the year. Lastly, our staff, students and parents work together to truly make Stadium Drive an amazing and successful school.
