School Notes:

St. Stephen Regional School, a member of the Diocese of Allentown School System, serves the people of Port Carbon, Pottsville, St. Clair, New Philadelphia and surrounding areas. It was established in 1886 and currently enrolls students from preschool through eighth grade. Besides Religion, Math, Reading, Language Arts, Science,and Social Studies, the students also have physical education, music, art, and computer education every week. Each year our students are assessed using the Iowa Tests of Basic Skills. These tests are then used to assess the students' needs to improve instruction the following year. We have an active Student Council that organizes activities that promote school spirit and Christian service throughout the year. St. Stephen's prides itself on our family environment. Along with the PTC organization, our development committee organizes family activities throughout the year, such as Christmas carolling. St. Stephen Regional School is proud of its heritage and its continuing mission to spread the Good News of Christ.
