The principal leadership is poor! The principle needs to improve or be removed from her position. She is very slow to respond to parents request to meet and she is disrespectfully to parents in closed door meetings. In a meeting I had with the principal, she did not want to listen to issues presented or try to come up with solutions to problems presented. Instead, she along with her front office staff collected evidence to prove our child was at fault (The school took no responsibility). I would suggest replacing the principal and front office staff. The teachers (some) and parents at the school are great and willing to work together for the good of the students, but there is only so much they can do under poor leadership. Due to poor leadership, I give this school a rating of 1 star.

THIS IS MY SON FIRST YEAR HERE AT ST.STEPHEN AND HIS LAST. THIS SCHOOL IS A JOKE IT IS WORSER THEN SOME PUBLIC SCHOOLS, IN OUR CITY.THE SCHOOL HAS GOING DOWN TREMEDOUSLY. THE PRINCIPAL CLAIMS TO BE COMPASSIONATE AND UNDERSTANDING BUT IT IS A FRONT. MY SONS 3RD GRADE TEACHER, MRS. ROLLINS IS A JOKE SHE HAD 14 STUDENTS IN HER CLASSROOM AND ALL SHE DID WAS TEXT PARENTS ALL DAY ABOUT WHAT THEY CHILD WAS NOT DOING. POOR CLASS ROOM MANGEMENT SKILLS. I FEEL THIS YEAR WAS TRULY, A WASTE OF MONEY,NOW I HAVE TO TEACHER MY CHILD WHAT HE SHOULD HAVE GOTTEN IN 3RD GRADE. BASED UPON ON THE GRADE LEVEL EXPECATATION. I BELIEVE IF YOU HAD 14 CHILDREN IN YOUR CLASS ROOM, EACH CHILD SHOULD BE EXCELLING. NEXT YEAR SHE WILL BE TEACHING 2ND A TRANSITIONAL CLASS WISH MEAN CHILDREN WORK AT A SLOWER PACE WITH ADDITIONAL WORK , ANOTHER JOKE ,IF MRS. ROLLINS COULD NOT HANDLE 14 CHILDREN ,DO YOU THINK SHE WILL BE ABLE TO HANDLE A SLOWER PACE CLASS.. IF YOU OR PAYING PARENTS SAVE YOUR MONEY AND GO ELSEWHERE. IT IS TIME TO EXPOSE THE REAL TRUTH ABOUT ST.STEPHEN SCHOOL MANY CHILDREN WHO LEAVE HERE OR SO FAR BEHIND ACADEMICALLY. SO DONT SEND YOUR CHILD HERE ESPECIALLY NOT FOR, $54OO IT IS TRULY NOT WORTH

This School needs NEW leadership, and office staff. The teachers that are doing the good jobs are being let go, there is no parent involvement. When you ask the principal to return your calls she does it on her on time and that means it never happens unless you complain every day! No second language, and PTO( Co-Opt) meetings there are more teachers and staff than parents, i went to the only one they had last school year 2010-2011 and maybe 6 parents came that evening. there were no meetings this year. no fundraising, or during school activities like spirit week. They even CANCELLED teacher appreciation week! and if asked could we do something for the teacher in our kids class we were told no!

My daughter attended this school for 3 years. There were poor communications amongst the teachers with transitions amongst grades. The expectations of the students were high but not fo the teachers. The princpal was fake and uncompassionate. There were some teachers who cared but they are no longer there for this reason. I do not recommend this school. There are public schools better than this catholic school. My daughter left there with a Gap in her education skill level versus the school that she is currently attending.

Last night we went to open house. We were very pleased at what we saw. The building is clean and the floors were waxed. The principal greeted us at the door. The building is under construction but you could not tell inside. We spoke to our son's teacher. We feel she's doing an excellent job. Both our boys have attended St.Stephen and we would reccommend this school to everyone we know. There is a loving environment and a dedicated staff at St. Stephen.

I love this school...It is providing my daughter the higher education she deserves. They also have reinforcement programs on the subjects she was weak in and it made a big difference in here grade point average and she has demonstrated strength in those areas. She is doing great.

We're very pleased with St. Stephen. The student/teacher ratio, academic program, and extracurricular activities are great!

We sent our second and fourth grader to this school. I could not have been more disappointed. My expectations were high, given that it is a catholic school. When we first moved to New Orleans from up north,we were unaware of the mess of the school system. The first year we sent our children to public school and were horrified with the low level of education they received. This school was private and we struggled to make tuition.The quality of this school is far below standard. If fact it was just as poor as any New Orleans public school. They should be ashamed of themselves!

My daughter has attened St. Stephen's for the past 3 years, and we have really enjoyed it. The teachers and other parents foster a family atmosphere. In fact, I think the best part about this school is the level of parent involvement. It's very evident in the behavior and attitude of the students.

I pulled my son out of St. Stephen after Katrina. The school went down in every aspect after the nuns were removed. The prioncipal is horrible to deal with. The school is nothing like it was in the years before the hurricane.

My son enjoyed his time at St. Stephen. He received the one on one attention that he'd not gotten anywhere else. We'll always have fond memories!

As an alumini of St Stephen Catholic School I would have to say that looking back on everything I don't think my mom could have made a better choice. While there I thought they could have given less homework but now I'm glad they did. While I didn't like many of the teacher then( only b/c I thought the classes were hard and they gave to much work), those same teacher left an impact on my life. Just wish I still lived in N.O. now to send my children.

My son graduated 8th grade from St. Stephen's. Although math and reading skills are not as stong as I would have liked in the middle school grades, it was a very comfortable environment with a good multicultural mix in the student body. There were counselor's on staff to work with students with special needs. Overall, I was very satisfied with my choice.

The early childhood classes strive to meet the needs of the individual. Title I reading is available, Speech Therapy, Chartwell for MR, austic children, etc. to name a few extea programs. Good Catholic values & religion teachings. The teachers vary but most are mildly dutiful and at times even remiss. The educational aspect is very good for the average student.
