We have two kids in the 11th grade at St Stephens. Our son began there two and a half years ago, and our daughter transferred there in August from a private high school here in Houston. St Stephens is an outstanding school. The faculty is top notch. Well-educated, enthusiastic, dedicated, kind, and professional are just a few words I happily use to describe the faculty and staff. Our daughter says she has learned more in the 3 months she has been at SSES than she learned in two entire years at her prior school. The educational standards at SSES are very high because of the quality of instruction. We think St Stephens is the very BEST of all the private schools in Houston that our children have attended. With Dr David Coe as the newly appointed Head of School, St Stephens is in great hands. Combined with a strong community of families and staff, St Stephens is an exceptional learning environment for children of many ages.

My son and daughter both attend St Stephen's Episcopal School, and I volunteer extensively at the school. This is our son's fourth year at the school, and our daughter's first, so we've had several years to observe the programs offered at several grade levels. The school truly provides a loving, nurturing environment in which to deliver a superior education. In a time when so many schools are cutting back on their arts programs, St. Stephen's maintains and continues to improve an already impressive fine arts curriculum that integrates art and music into what they are learning in their classrooms. Children attending St. Stephen's are encouraged to develop their creativity, intelligence, and individuality, and the teachers at St. Stephens really do an outstanding job of meeting the needs of the individual students. I cannot say enough good things about the teachers at the school; they care about the children, and they give them the tools to succeed both at their current level and later in life. The parent community is also active and involved, and many parents attend monthly coffee at the school to socialize with each other and get updates from the administrative staff. St. Stephens is a real blessing for the families who are fortunate enough to have found them.

My name is Mark R. Yzaguirre. My wife and I are co-chairs of the Parent Ambassadors Committee (the parents organization) at St. Stephen's Episcopal School and our daughter is a student at St. Stephen's. St. Stephen's is a great school. The learning environment is both challenging and nurturing, as one might expect at a Montessori school, and our daughter has thrived there. The Parent Ambassadors Committee has worked well with the school's administration and they are an efficient and proactive group. I give St. Stephen's a strong positive review.
