At Stevenson, we believe that education should do more than kindle students' delight in learning and prepare them for continued academic success.
We believe that school can lay the groundwork for a joyful life.
Stevenson's educational philosophy may be different from that of any other school you are considering.
Our approach to education starts with you.
We want you to love learning and achievement—but we also want you to love the arts, nature, recreation, friends and your own evolving perspective on the world. Respect yourself, and respect everyone else whose life touches yours.
