School Reviews

great school for talented students - lots of input of teachers our two sons went on to get a PhD in two of Europe''s top universities - King''s College in London and University of Cambridge they loved the academic environment and the caring teachers

Our children attend Saint Stephen''s and we couldn''t be happier! The faculty/staff truly know each of our three children and embrace their individual qualities. The PK3-12 campus creates a unique and caring community that develops, challenges and supports each child at the appropriate level. I highly recommend Saint Stephen''s.

Great school! We moved here 3 years ago and found this "gem of a school". My boys (who have always attended public school in the past) acclimated well due to the friendly, caring staff and students. They have both found a great set of friends and have excelled in school in-spite of the challenging curriculum. The small class sizes are wonderful and the students get one-on-one attention from the well-educated teachers, as needed. Also, the College Counseling office has been great, they are incredibly knowledgable and well-connected to the college world. We are very happy with our decision to send our children to Saint Stephen''s!

I attended two weeks of the summer camps at St. Stephens Episcopal School. The subjects were math and writing. They''re really awesome ! I totally loved math and writing after this Camp!

Our child, Bam, attended every week of St. Stephen''s Summer Camp and it was amazing. Bam loved every week. The teachers were excellent! Every week there were different themes and so information packed into the week. He learned a ton and made so many friends. This was our first experience with St. Stephen''s and a perfect way to transition him into his first year of Fledglings. Love it and so did Bam! Thank you teachers for putting so much thought and effort into your careers.

My son attended Saint Stephen''s from Pre-K through high school. It was a wonderful experience for him and indeed for the whole family. The teachers are dedicated and determined to help their students succeed. Classes are small and one-on-one attention is always available. My son''s university experience was enhanced by his years of training and learning at Saint Stephen''s and he is now working for a Fortune 500 company. I attribute much of his success to the teachers and administrators of Saint Stephen''s. It was worth every cent.

Saint Stephen''s offers an education that is 2nd to none in this area. Not only are the academics world class but the athletics and arts are excellent. My son graduated from Saint Stephen''s in 2007. His college experience was wonderful and so much of that can be attributed to the education he received at Saint Stephen''s. He learned how to speak confidently in front of a large group, how to entertain during school assemblies, how to study and succeed and how to be part of a team. After graduating from college he was hired by an excellent company and is continuing to use his Saint Stephen''s skills to succeed in his career. Thank you to all the teachers and administrators that made such a positive difference.

You can not find a better school in this area. If you want your child to have the best education this is the school. My son loves it and my daughter will be going next year. There are no second thoughts this is the best school.
