St. Stephen's has been a wonderful experience for our kids and our family. The teachers and staff care about the kids on all levels including academically, spiritually, and socially. The St. Stephen's community is full of great families who have the same goals and support each other in good times and bad. Not having grown up in the area, we didn't have much knowledge of the schools. I think one of the greatest testaments to how great St. Stephen's is are the families who have sent generation after generation to this school. St. Stephen's has a strong history and a great future!

This school provides a community for my family. It is a supported curriculum not only the students and families, but of the church parishioners themselves. There is virtus training to keep our kids safe. There are many volunteer opportunities for family and friends to make learning fun. St. Stephens helps make growing up for kids comfortable and each individual's gift or talent they bring to this community everyday. It's like "cheers" where everyone knows your name. Maybe not your actual name but you recognize the people coming and going whether it is the kids or parents. Parents are informed of their child's progress through the technology that we are able to utilize and the teachers have a system to communicate with kids and parents. And fundraising to bring great programs seem like a piece of cake because you know the funds aren't going to something less than useful. The generous donations make going to st. Stephens that much more grateful in my family. Can't wait for both of my children to be In this community.

Spirit and Mind truly grow at St. Stephens. Our middle school is special. With less than 50 students in each grade, they grow and develop in a safe environment.

St. Stephen School has a great educational program, offering Spanish starting in Kindergarten. They offer extra curricular activities ranging from Chess to Drama and several sports to choose from. A school free of bullying is a goal of the kids here. They are an amazing group of teachers, kids and parents. I highly recomend this school to all!!

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.
