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.
