Last year we transferred our daughter from Perry Hall Elementary to St Stephen. She was going into the 2nd grade so we all were nervous about the switch. We were amazed how welcoming everyone was to us. The parents, faculty, and children are so warm and caring. The education she received surpassed our expectations. She has excelled academically and socially. The school has great extra curricular activities too. In one year, we have all made so many friends. It's not just a school, it's a family. Someone asked Kelsey why she liked her new school. Her answer confirmed that we made the right choice. She said "Because everyone is nice to me and each other." We couldn't be happier at St. Stephen!
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!!!
As a parent and a teacher, I cannot imagine working in any other school. St. Stephen is a blessing for both me and my children.
Wonderful teachers and staff. They make you feel like family. My daughter loves going to school.
St Stephen School is a wonderful Catholic school. L feel my children have been enriched to the upmost standard in education and their faith.
My son went to school at St Stephens from Kindergarten thru 8th grade. The school is great, a close knit school were everyone mostly knows everybody. I feel he received a great education as well.
The faculty and staff provide a wonderful learning environment for our children. They care very deeply, and it shows!
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
I love the sense of community and genuine concern each teacher shows for each student.
St. Stephen School cares about each child as much as the collective group. They hold a high standard of excellence for all and help each to achieve it!
My daughter has grown so much academically and spiritually in just seven months at St. Stephen's....it is wonderful to have a school that supports what I am trying to do at home.
A great learning atmosphere where morals and lesson plans go hand in hand.
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.
I love St. Stephen School because I think the entire community projects a loving and nurturing environment. Parents, teachers, grandparents, siblings, etc. all care about the students and want the very best for each and every one of them.
