I love this school. My daughter has been attending for four years now and is constantly being challenged and engaged, as well as motivated to learn. Great principle and all the teachers are friendly and competent. Great communication between staff and parents. Happy environment with much to do. We are sad to be PCSing from this wonderful school.

I give Fort Stevens a 2 to 2 1/2 at best. Both my children did not like going to school and were afraid everyday for their safety. My son still has to go back to Fort Stevens and is having many fears about it. I am even looking into alternatives for this year if at all possible. The only time I would give Fort Stevens a 5 star rating is when Mr. Wolf was principal because. The only teachers at the school that I can 100% say are wonderful are Mrs. Wilder, Mrs. Salme and Mrs. Wetzel. They helped my son incredibly.

We just moved here from another town in WA. What has impressed me the most is the positive and uplifting attitudes of teachers and staff. And I am amazed at the level of communication. At our old school, we never heard anything between report cards. At Ft Steven's we have an alomst weekly update of our children's progress. In addition, it has been very helpful to know what the home work expectatins are and when it's due. I love that the whole school runs on the same homework schedule. It makes it much easier for working aprents too keep tabs on their children's home work. Love the school.

Fort Stevens has been an awesome experience for us. We are military and relocate frequently. The staff there is awesome, the teachers are great and truly care about the kids. Everyone througout the whole school has a great team attitude and work to make the school a positive, fun place to be. My son came from El Paso with a .9 reading level entering the first grade(below target for his age)and before he left the first grade and the Walk to Read program he had gone up to a 2.3 reading level (thank you Mrs' Salme and Wilder)and now going into the 3rd grade is up to a 4.9 and 170 words per minute. Staff wise you can't beat this school. I liked it so much I got a job there.

Ft. Stevens is a good school. My son had an awful kindergarten experience. However, his teachers for 1st and 2nd grade worked really hard to help undo the damage done by his very first teacher. Mr. Wolf was a great principal and will be missed.

Fort Stevens is a great school! I am very impressed with all my son learned in his first year of Kindergarten. I am thankful that my son had such a great experience for his first year of school!

My daughter just finished up her third year at Fort Stevens. We have had nothing but positive experiences here. The teachers are excellent and the Principal, Mr. Wolf, is outstanding. I have another child starting Kindergarten in September and she can't wait. I would highly recommend this school!
