"My son learned to take responsibility for his work and actions. He developed meaningful relationships with students and adults. And he earned through practice skills and tools that will serve him well on his life's journey."
C. Leilani Valdes '91 Parent of Boarding Student and Alum
"I appreciate the relationships I have with students at St. Stephen's. I have had great conversations with students while working on a lab, coaching them in track, sitting with them at a lunch table or driving them to the mall."
Melissa Livsey Upper School Science Instructor
