Instilling Franciscan values is a cornerstone of St. Stephen School’s curriculum.  Students engage in service projects, such as making sandwiches for the Midnight Run program to serve those in need.
In the St. Stephen School rooftop garden, students help grow vegetables and other edible plants.  This interactive learning space allows science to come alive as students engage in planting, measuring, caring for, and ultimately harvesting lettuce, broccoli, herbs, and much more.
