My grandson has had excellent teachers, small class sizes, just the right challenges without undue pressure. Dr. Brunson has been an incredible role model and she works hard to communicate openly and honestly with all. The Challenge program has been excellent -- creative and mind expanding, not just more homework.
Overall, my kids have had a positive experience at Field Stevenson. The teachers and Principal are very welcoming and care deeply about the students. Concerns are addressed in a timely manner and communication is very open.
Everyone in this school who I have encountered with is wonderful, from the lunch room staff, teachers, librarian to the Principal. The teachers and the principal are open-minded, willing to hear the concerns or inputs from parents and takes necessary steps to make sure each child's needs are met. Like in any schools, it does take parents involvement to make a school great. And so far, we have been very happy. I have a 3rd and a 5th graders.
The Principal Dr. Brunson has been nominated for the esteemed 2017 Golden Apple Stanley C. Golder Leadership Award. This nomination tells a lot about this school and its leadership. I hope she gets the award. Well-deserved.
My son is in his first year at Field Stevenson (3rd grade). We have been very happy with the experience. He's had the chance to participate in the "Challenge" program for advanced learners; and has been part of several extracurriculars, including "3C Club (arts and crafts), additional Choir (outside of regularly scheduled music class), and Science Club. I wish more parents knew ahead of time about the additional offerings.
