We are judged by who we are not what we look like. We are given the chance that all students should receive and that is a great education because with out education our choices in life are very few. So we owe our opportunities to our teachers and parents who work together to make sure that we are provided with the best possible education.
I am currently a 9th. grader at the school. I was afraid to go to high school because of bulling issues in the past but at Stepinac I felt welcomed right away. The teachers work with you and honestly care about the students. You can tell a lot about a school when you feel comfortable enough to speak with the principal regarding any issues ( no one likes to visit the principals office. The teachers want you to excell so they offer their services to tutor you during the week. Being a minority had me a little concerned at first but the color of my skin has not been an issue, I am judged on my academics and the respect that I give the staff and the students. I commend the principal and the staff for going out of their way to make sure that we become successful in life and I thank them for not giving up on us. The staff understands that we have our days at times but the encouragement, commitment and dedication that we receive deserves a big grateful thank you. Thanks again, Brandonn Baez
As an alumni I can recommend Stepinac. It is a college prep school so keep that in mind. If your kid is hard working then you shouldn't have any issues. If you are looking for the school to fix your kid then you need some place else.
When we looked at high schools for my son, his middle school principal said "you never hear anything bad about Stepinac, take a look." We followed his advice and we are so happy we did. It is a wonderful school. The adminstration and teachers truly care for the boys. There is much less economic or social or race stratification than the typical high school. The rich, poor, jocks and nerds are all friends. If there are problems, the administration bends over backwards to correct. The Honor Program is great. The boys develop a real bond, like a sports team. There are a wide variety of AP courses. In Junior year, the Guidance Department's SAT prep is taught as a regular class. The Guidance Department has great connections and guides the boys to appropriate colleges with merit scholarships. Parent involvement is encourage. It's been a pleasure to be part of the Stepinac family.
