If your are considering St. Stephens, you will be making a phenomenal decision for yourself and your child. My daughter graduated from this school, and, now my son is there. All of the students and teachers know each other by name. It is truly a nurturing and academically challenging environment. There are field trips, clubs, and special programs that your child can be involved in, and; they greatly encourage parental involvement. Like another reviewer said, no school lunches, but; they have pizza and sub lunches once a month. (My kids like to pack their lunches anyway) Great school!!!!
The family atmosphere is incredible. The teachers and staff are all dedicated to the students. Academically rigorous yet supportive and nurturing. And the small class sizes are a plus. Well worth the money.
A perfect school, more like a family. The education is superb, both in what they teach and those who deliver it. Academically oriented, but the children also have SO much fun! Truly a model for what all schools should be!
My son was in the Harrisburg School District and was not doing so well, we made the decision to put him in St. Stephens and he began to excel almost immediately. He loves school and everything about it.
I couldn't ask for a better school. All the staff treat each child like family. The ethnic diversity is hard to find anywhere else. The school ensures that the children are exposed to all the treasures that downtown Harrisburg has to offer.
This is a great little school. More of a community than a school. Very high parental involvement. Art, Spanish and music are all ofered from pre-school on through eighth grade. Lots of clubs: karate, cub/girl scouts, etc. Located downtown so have access to children's theater, science center, library branch, state museum, capitol, City Island and many other field trip possibilities.
