This school is great. My son is in second grade and love the school. The quality of education is excelent.
Stevenson has a great mixture of kids and a wonderful small school atmosphere, that nutures the shy and the not-so-shy.
The greatest thing about R.L. Stevenson is their commitment to their PeaceBuilder program. In a world fraught with violent and degrading images, Stevenson teaches our children to be respectful of teachers and each other, to build each other up, not tear down and to take responsibility for their actions. I'm also proud to be a part of their fabulous Friends for Stevenson program, which raises much needed funds to keep their arts and music classes going in this terrible time of budget cuts in our state. These programs are vital to producing well-rounded, happy and expressive kids and are proven techniques in improving math scores. The teachers and faculty are obviously caring and dedicated to our children and to open lines of communication with the parents. I grew up in an extremely good public school district and had always hoped my child would have that same blessing. With Stevenson, I feel that he has.
Stevenson School is a gem..I feel so proud and lucky to be a part of this wonderful place and never once worry about my child as I drop her off. It is a warm and caring world full of dedicated staff and loving parents. I have to laugh at those who pay big bucks to send their kids to private school only a few miles away, when right here under their nose is the most perfect example of what the educational experience should be!
I love Stevenson. The teachers and principal challenge, stimulate and love our kids as much as we do. Our children obtain a sense of community, responsibiliy and citizenship as a result of their hard work and participation. The peacebuilder program is truly a great empowerment tool. Thank you for making Stevenson a place my kids want to go to in the morning and come home bragging about their adventures from at night. Stevenson is a great choice and elementary choice!
Stevenson has the BEST Teachers, staff, parents and students - It doesn't get any better than this!
stevenson has the best front office staff! and a very caring prinicipal and the teachers rock!
because the teachers are amazing and they really care about all the students.
You couldn't hope for more committed students, teachers and parents.
The teachers and faculty are great. They really try to encourage learning in a fun atmosphere for the kids. Plus we do a lot of great events for the kids.
Our school has the most amazing kids and teachers! We just heard that our state testing scores improved last year across the board by leaps and bounds due to all the hard work! We also have a great number of families who are involved with our PTA and our Families for Stevenson booster association helping us to raise money to keep art and music in our school during these drastic budget cuts. We even have a Green Team dedicate to keeping our school on the forefront of 'Being Green' by recycling, making better choices and building our own outdoor garden classroom for everyone to enjoy.
I cannot say enough for this school. The principal especially. The principal and staff members out-shine all other schools in the Burbank district. Consistant involvement with students and parents. A wonderful experience for my daughter. I would highly recommend this school.
Stevenson is a gift to public education. Not only is the entire Burbank Unified School District one of the best Public School districts I have seen, my children have received superior education at Stevenson. Academic education is carefully presented, given special consideration to those students that require additional time. However, the peacebuilder program has helped to nurture responsibilty on the playground as well. As a public school teacher in a neighboring district, I would be concerned to have my own children at the school where I teach. I am completely confident in this school. It is wonderful!
Stevenson is a wonderful school! As a member of the community for more than a decade, I can whole-heartedly report that the school is clean, well-maintained, has a wonderful, huge playground, and is such a welcoming environment! Stevenson has had top-notch principals for years, and the current one continues that tradition! The teachers are energetic, caring, and really try to balance the requirements of the state with the reality of kids and how they learn. All kids, with support at home, excel! The PTA and FFS are fantastic organizations that give there all for to the school. There is a true 'team effort' between all the staff and the community. Last, but certainly not least, the office staff are the most professional, kind, knowledgeable I have ever met. Stevenson school is the best!
Stevenson School has alot to offer in the calss room,how ever theres a few teachers who need [to] learn how to comunicate better with our kids weather they are in the class room or outside. Remember the Kids come first!
My kids have been a Stevenson for a few years now and there have been many positve changes in that time. We have a Booster club that raises thousands of dollars so our kids can have art in the classroom and we recently became a CA Distinguised School!
My sons have both been at Stevenson since Kindergarten. Now they are in 4th and 1st grade. I am so happy with this school. We have a very involved PTA and FFS (Families For Stevenson) who makes things like art and music happen in a district that doesn't have funding for that. Our teachers are wonderful, and actually seem to enjoy what they do and create warm nurturing relationships with the kids. We have a wonderful 'PeaceBuilders' policy which encourages peaceful resolutions, respect for self, and respect for others. I could not be happier with my childrens Elementary experience so far.
