This school is going to tell you how great it is but before you believe this lie, do your home work, look at it's ratings see how it ranks 222nd out of 681. See for your self how it compares. Read the reviews there are a few bad reviews from parents who's kids go here. This is not a good school, listen to those who know. Decide for your self - but this school is awful. Would not recommend it to anyone.

Stephens Elementary school is full of caring and innovative teachers and staff. They work to meet individual needs of students. The school does not qualify for Title 1 funding, as do many other schools in the county, so they must fund raise through the super PTA to provide some of the technology and programming. The school has formed great partnerships with community agencies such as The Northern KY School of Music, providing a beginning strings program, and Children's Inc., providing before and after school care on site, as well as full day Kindergarten experience. The school is running 3 STEM science labs and a huge outdoor garden for student learning. The school's Strong Fathers group is re-building an outdoor classroom in the woods behind the school which will add to STEM learning. The arts are being integrated with other content, and the school's annual celebration of the arts, ARTSPALOOZA, brings a full week of students working with professional artists. Stephens is a wonderful school!

This school is one of the lower performing schools. Always asking for money, they don't care about the success of every individual student, and they don't seem to care about student Harassment and bullying which they do nothing about. As for the education standards I would say they are poor at best. They offer no help to the students who may have a harder time in certain subjects. The communication of teachers and parents is non existant and over all I would say the education a child gets here is not a good one. Very unsastified. Would not recommend placing a student here.

Don't lose your phone at this school because the staff there will hack into it and go through all your personal data.

Outstanding school! This school works hand in hand with parents. The PTA is very strong and involved, and the staff is appreciative. The school offers many, many after-school enrichment activities.

THIS SCHOOL IS SO MONEY HUNGRY! EVERY OTHER DAY MY SON COMES HOME WITH SOMETHING WITH $$$$ SIGNS ON IT! NOT ONLY THAT BUT THEY TELL THE KIDS, SO WHEN YOU CAN'T GIVE THEM MONEY FOR EVERY LITTLE THING THEY ASK FOR, YOUR CHILD FEELS LIKE AN OUTCAST! I REALLY WISH WE WOULDN'T HAVE MOVED TO THIS SCHOOL DISTRICT. I'M NOT A FAN OF HOW THEIR HAND IS ALWAYS OUT!!! ALSO, THEY DON'T DO ANYTHING FOR THE KIDS TO PRESENT TO THEIR PARENTS. THERE ARE NO CHORUS/BAND SHOWS FOR PARENTS TO ATTEND AND WATCH YOUR CHILD. UNLESS YOU CAN VOLUNTEER AS A ROOM PARENT YOU ARE BASICALLY CLUELESS AS TO WHAT YOUR CHILD DOES. I WAS NOT HAPPY ABOUT NOT BEING ABLE TO SEE HIM ANYTHING THIS YEAR!! I FULLY REGRET BUYING A HOUSE IN THIS DISTRICT AND NOW WE ARE STUCK WITH THIS TERRIBLE SCHOOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My son has been going to Stephens for a couple years now. He has ADHD (ADD) and his teacher is wonderful in helping him. The school itself is very involved in wanting your child to do their very best. They have been very helpful in coming up with ways and ideas to help my ADD child. I am thankful! They also put up with my constant monitoring and questions. It is a must with an ADD child.

I am very pleased with Stephens Elementary. My son started this year in Kindergarten and I am amazed and how much he has learned in the first term. The standard of the projects he brings home is exceptional. I recently moved here from another state in the north east and i can tell you the level of education in this school is comparable to the private schools on the east coast. I would highly recommend this school to any parent.

I believe that stephens elementary is one of the top schools in northern kentucky for many reasons. They have a full faculty that is qualified in every aspect of their job. The administration is very approachable and always willing to help out and hear any concerns that a parent may have. The extracurricular acitivities that are offered are high quality and very diverse to appeal to every child. The pta organization is very involved and gives a lot of money to the staff to help run programs as smoothly as possible. Parents are welcome to volunteer at any time as long as they have a background check on file at the school. I feel that my children are very safe and loved by their teachers. I would and have highly recommended stephens elementary to many friends.
