Wonderful, caring teachers who go the extra mile for my daughter who struggles in reading. I've always been able to sit down and have a conversation with the principal, she has an open door policy and spends time on the playground every day with the children so she knows them all by name. A great community, family-oriented feel to this neighborhood school. Perhaps the earlier review from an upset parent was because their child was disciplined; the staff and principal are very consistent with expectations and rules and the behaviors of the students. Most important, high achievement in academics is a priority and after school tutoring is offered for free in the second semester.
My son attended Stevenson from 1st to 4th grade. He had a couple of great teachers but some the staff's behavior is very inappropiate. They dont take bullying or harrassment seriously at all. When the parent or the student complains to the principal, she doesnt have time to talk nor does she return phone calls. His last teacher made discouraging comments to the class. Im completely dissappointed in the school, their actions and they way that the district handles things. As a result, I moved from Southfield after residing here for 7 years and sent my child a school in another district.
My son has attended Stevenson since he was 6 years old. I love this school ! Son is meap scores were high on math and reading he is in the 3rd grade and the only concern I have is what Middle school can I find for him when he leave.
My daughter has had a great year at Stevenson Elementary. She is in the first grade, and will be in the second grade Fall 2009. The teachers, and latchkey staff is wonderful, and have shown my daughter the support which she needs. The classwork I feel is great to ensure the students at Stevenson are achieving as much as other students locally, statewide, and nationally. My daughter has also be blessed to have a great teacher - Mrs. Washington. As a working parent, I try as much as possible to volunteer when I can at my daughter's school. I look forward to working with the staff at Stevenson as my daughter advancing through each grade. TPJ
