Every Moment Counts

A Stevens education encourages inquiry, critical thinking and collaborative problem solving.

Purposeful learning, every moment of every day, is why Stevens graduates are More Than Ready for success in high school and beyond.

Welcome From the Head

Each year I have the pleasure of watching every one of our 8th grade graduates give a commencement speech reflecting on their time at Stevens and their growth as individuals. I am always moved by their confidence, integrity, and the impact that Stevens has had in their lives. They also reinforce why I am so passionate about my work.

From the moment you walk through our school doors, you are immediately embraced by the warmth, enthusiasm and collegiality that our community has to offer. From laughing preschool students who are hands-deep in a sandbox exploring artifacts to middle schoolers huddled in the hallway engaged in thoughtful conversation as they explore ways to solve a real-world problem, a Stevens education reflects curiosity, excitement and engagement toward learning.

Stevens’ approach to learning focuses on fostering bold and safe spaces for students to take risks and to be challenged by teachers, peers, and themselves. We provide an inclusive and innovative environment where every student is an active and valued participant, every teacher and staff member cares, and where you can always count on us to strive for excellence. Your child deserves nothing less.

Our robust and rigorous curriculum provides our students every opportunity to cultivate their interests and enjoy the moments that will define them as adults. Along the way, they are guided by experienced, thoughtful and passionate teachers who instill a lifelong love of learning in every student. Our graduates emerge from Stevens as reflective, ethical leaders more than ready to positively impact their communities.

In the course of our 74-year history, we have cultivated a community that draws its strength from connection, diversity and partnership. These are the values on display at our many wonderful annual traditions: Helping Parent/Guardian Days, the 4th grade Egg Drop, the Faculty vs. Students Basketball Game, the Cabaret talent show and more. Each September, we welcome new students and faculty with a boisterous clap-in ceremony, and in June we celebrate a year of growth and learning at a series of ceremonies we call Journey. These are just a few of the traditions that unite our community in service to our students.

I invite you to visit Stevens for an information session, a tour, or one of our many community events to see what makes our school so exceptional. My team and I look forward to welcoming you.
