Faith, values, education...Saint Stephens is thriving! They are building a new Pre-K building for 3 and 4 year olds that will open in fall of 2014. They are also preparing to add air conditioning to the main K-8 school building. Wifi throughout the campus and more I-pads being added for the students. The school is an island of sanity in an insane world. This is the America you grew up in- Church on Sunday, family picnics, carnival, school plays, involved parents. Saint Stephen can be summed up in one moment- in the middle of recess when the Church bells ring all 300+ students stop, stand silent, and face the Church. Its truly amazing and heartwarming to witness. The teachers and parents are very involved and act as one big family. You will not be disappointed! Your child is worth the investment!

We left a local public school for St. Stephen. I had no idea what a private school was all about since all I've ever known is public. It has far exceeded my expectations. It's a very loving and friendly atmosphere. My child is thriving and loves going to school! The principal to the maintenance man work very hard to make a great school even better.

We are very pleased with our experience so far at St. Stephen . I have been especially impressed by the faculty and staff at St. Stephen and their mastery of their craft. My children love coming to school every day and I know their teachers genuinely care about the success of the students both academically and socially. It really is like a 2nd home to us and that is a wonderful feeling!

It is like a 2nd family to all of the children who attend. The parents can feel that their children are well cared for while being well educated.

I've taught at St. Stephen School for 23 years. My children all graduated from here, and my grandchildren will be attending soon. This school has a family atmosphere, very supportive parents, teachers who always put the concerns of their students first, and a faculty with whom it has my pleasure to work. I love this place!!!

I love St. Stephen's School because it is small and every child gets the individual attention they need. SSS promotes faith, respect, and love in their education and school day. We have been part of the school for over 15 years and have loved watching the school expand its cirriculum and technological with the support of parents, parishoners, and friends. With the continued generosity of everyone it will continue to flourish-God Bless

What I really like about St.Stephen School is that they develope the students not only academically, but spiritually as well. The day begins with the whole school praying together, and ends with each class saying a prayer.

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.
