I considered myself blessed to be part of the school. My girls are surrounded by the most loving and caring environment, but at the same time being constantly challenged to be the best they can be. For the last 7 years, my kids leave to school with the uttermost excitement, as if it was the first day every day! What else can you ask for! Schools from all over the world tour our state of the art facilities to learn how to apply technologies in a learning environment while maintaining a healthy balance (education, outdoor activities, technology). Thank you St. Stephen's!!!!

We feel very blessed that our children go to St. Stephen's. We seem to be in a world filled with overbearing parents pushing and shoving their kids to be the cream of the crop and many times those same kids grow up lacking social skills and empathy. While academics you can get anywhere and St. Stephen's proves to be on par with the local curriculum of its peers, where the school really stands out is what it teaches the children about self worth, community and the environment. St. Stephen's is unique in its parental involvement of the children's education. Learning begins and ends in the home and the school expects parents and families to deliver on this pledge. Too many parents rely solely on a school for education and if that is you, do not go to this school. However if you are looking for a school that will develop a well rounded child, with the ability to express himself/herself eloquently and confidently, who will have free thinking to come up with solutions within a spiritual and nurturing environment, then St.Stephen's is your school.

St. Stephen s is a solid C. Its best features are that it has a well manicured appearance and clean marketing. There are many nice families at the school and it has a well run library. However, the school is completely failing in its learning quality. If the most important priority in choosing a school is what and how your child learns, this will not be the right school for you. The highly marketed technology was nothing more than electronic babysitting. There are problems with classroom management, ineffective minimally-trained teachers and many basic supervision issues. It is almost as if you pay for all the things that do not matter and none of the things that actually do. It was a complete disappointment. Our children have changed schools and the difference has been excellent and also shocking. We were told to expect that our children would be behind coming from this school and they were. Overall, we could not recommend it to anyone.

At the end of the day, what we all want as parents is a great education for our children. If that can be done in a safe and nurturing environment, even better. As a parent who has been part of the school for several years, I can wholeheartedly say that teachers truly care about their craft at this school. Because of this, the administration backs their teachers 100% and makes sure they get whatever tools, resources, and training is needed for them to realize their ideal learning environment. Everything that happens at St. Stephen's is a result of careful planning with a true focus on the students' complete education. That includes academics, spirituality, emotional well-being, global citizenship, and everything else we want our children embrace as they get ready to move into middle school.

Very disappointing academically. I agree with the previous parent's response, except I will take my daughter out after the first year. I recommend searching other schools before commiting to enrollment in this one. Good luck!

St. Stephen's provided our son with a wonderful combination of structure, support and creative exploration. The teachers are involved at all levels, as are a great number of parents. It is a welcoming evironment for both students and their families.

St. Stephen's provides a warm and nuturing environment for all its students. The teachers are top notch, the classes are small, and the environment embodies what is so charming about Coconut Grove. The children are encouraged to enjoy the learning process while being taught respect and self discipline.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
