With Dr. Hicks and Molly Bozzo at the helm, Stevenson seems to be going through a renaissance. There is an authentic current of excitement communicated to the students about both the staff's commitment to excellence and the students pivotal role in their vibrant "community." Academic standards are exceptional, as is the two-teacher team approach in each classroom. The teachers are deeply committed to their craft and you get kind & constructive input about your child's growth. The school provides a "Pirate (mascot) Planner" at the start - a handy calendar organizer that maps out the entire year. In fact, organization is a nice hallmark of the school, as is the fact that the staff works synergistically. They know each and every child and their needs.
Lastly, one of the most impressive things about this school is the way it maintains a balance between preparing a child academically and nurturing who they are as a person. Not only do they have one of the best social-emotional programs in the nation, but their commitment to helping a child become well-rounded and yet discover their own individuality is rather unparalleled. You're lucky if you can get a spot at this school. Best tip is to apply very early in the application process.
