Discover This School
Borrowing from the thoughts of Robert Louis Stevenson, we believe that we are a success when we leave the world better than we found it, if we look for the best in others and give the best we have. Our mission to guide the development of a well-rounded human being who has the ability, skills, and attitude to contribute positively to self, family, community, and society. We want to prepare our students for responsible life in a free society. We want our students to understand the need for peace, tolerance, equality, and friendship among all people. At Stevenson, all students and families will be treated fairly regardless of their ethnicity, socio-economic standing, gender, or ability level; and all students have equal opportunity to experience the core curriculum and receive high quality instruction. We use all available resources; time, budget, support programs, grants, instructional and enrichment materials to provide, to the best of our ability, whatever is necessary for each student to succeed.
Through a nurturing and learning-friendly environment, students enjoy learning new information and ideas and develop a strong sense of self-confidence. Our school program provides many opportunities for the students to be rigorously challenged with 21st Century Learning and engage in authentic learning experiences in and out of the classroom. Academic programs include a functioning elementary school library, staffed by a credentialed library media teacher, computer learning, math tutoring for both struggling and advanced students, literacy intervention, peer tutoring, reading buddies, and Lincoln Teacher Academy volunteers. Our school works closely with the ExCEL afterschool program to create and sustain "safe havens" at public schools where students and community members can access expanded learning opportunities and integrated education, health, social service, and cultural programs in the out-of-school hours. We foster a culture of service-learning through leadership opportunities, modeling healthy community practices.
