An important part of St. Stephen's is the interaction between older and younger students.  One way this is achieved is through the Reading Buddy program. Students in Grades 2 - 5 are paired with students in PK - Grade 1 and meet regularly to read together.
Students in Senior Kindergarten through Grade 2 learn the benefits of organic gardening.  They have planted tomatoes, green peppers, eggplants, and herbs. They tend to their plants each day.
Students in Grades 1 - 5 attend chapel twice each week with older students serving as acolytes. The preschool students attend one chapel each week.
Technology is actively used at St. Stephen's. Classrooms are equipped with interactive whiteboards, computers, and other technologies. Students in grades 1 through 5 are provided with iPads by the school.
Inquiry-based learning is an important aspect of St. Stephen's curriculum.
The Maypole has become a favorite part of the graduation festivities. A tall pole with long pastel-colored ribbons suspended from the top, festooned with flowers to match the flowers worn by the graduates, is erected under the oaks. Encircled by faculty, friends, and family, the graduates perform intricate dances around the pole, weaving the ribbons in and out to create striking patterns, accompanied by inspirational music selected to commemorate the special occasion.
Grade 5 students develop leadership skills through many opportunities, including Safety Patrol.  Another leadership opportunity for our eldest students is the Safety Patrol. Grade 5 assists in arrival duty as they escort our preschool students safety to their classroom. Students take down the American flag each afternoon and ring the school bell each morning to signify the beginning of a new school day.
St. Stephen's Episcopal Day School, serving PK to Grade 5, was founded by St. Stephen's Episcopal Church in 1958.
St. Stephen's Episcopal Day School is an outreach program of St. Stephen's Episcopal Parish providing students with the academic, ethical and spiritual foundation to succeed in a diverse and changing world.
We seek to develop each child's natural curiosity into a lifelong ability to think critically and creatively and to love the experience of learning.
St Stephen's is a welcoming place where a challenging yet nurturing environment instills in each child a respect for oneself and one's community, preparing them to accept the principle that from everyone to whom much has been given much will be expected.

Both of my daughters graduated from St. Stephen's and loved their experience. St. Stephen's has a strong sense of community and the teachers and staff are very nurturing. The school values traditions, some that date back to 1958 when the school first opened, and it embraces innovation and change in the classroom. The teachers take the time to get to know each child individually and they inspire a love of learning. Character education is a vital component of the school's mission and is taught throughout the curriculum. I would wholeheartedly recommend St. Stephen's to anyone!
