School Reviews

We looked at a couple of different private schools before enrolling our son at Stevens Cooperative School. Initially, we had a different private school in mind because they offered French, but after we went to Stevens` open house we felt that Stevens would be the best fit and decided to enroll him there. Stevens did not disappoint. We had a great first impression but love the school even more now since our son is a student. He is so excited to go to school every day and even asked us during winter break when he could go back to school. Everybody there, the teachers and the administration are very passionate about teaching and deeply care about the students. Stevens` teachers and administration are focused on the students and how they can best serve them. Our son is in PreK and his teachers are fantastic, very warm and caring but still provide the structure and discipline preschoolers crave. The curriculum is very hands on and nurtures his creative freedom to express himself through play and block building and storytelling. He also made great progress learning to read and write and can even do simple math and speak a bit of Spanish after only five months. We are very happy with Stevens and look forward to seeing him blossom there.
