My name is Krissy Hirtz and I am the mother of two boys (ages 7 and 9) attending St. Stephen’s Episcopal School. We transferred our older son to the school last year (2011-2012) and were so pleased with the school that this year (2012-2013) we transferred our younger son. The response from our boys to the school has been extraordinary. In the Montessori environment, guided by highly qualified and nurturing teachers our sons have blossomed academically and socially. They have a desire to learn that wasn't being expressed at their former school, and the body of knowledge that are exposed to on a daily basis is phenomenal. It leaves me wishing that I had been able to go to a school like this as a child! My husband and I are very fortunate our friends told us about St. Stephen’s, and we are thrilled to be a part of the St. Stephen’s community.

As a parent of two students attending St. Stephen's Episcopal School, I have been very pleased with the value our school has added to our family. Both of the children are being nurtured in an encouraging, supportive, yet academically challenging environment. The partnership we have with administration, faculty and staff has proven to be productive. Having a background in education, I am quite impressed with the open communication, transparency of operations and focus on the well being of each child. I highly rate St. Stephen's in addressing the social, educational and spiritual needs of each student, as an individual.

I am a former Board Member at St Stephen's and my two sons have attended the school for the past five years. My husband Ryan and I chose St. Stephen's for our children because of its small, nurturing environment and excellent teachers, its Montessori curriculum (combined with an emphasis on Fine Arts), and Episcopal identity, all of which contribute to the development of each child as a unique individual. We were also drawn to the diversity of the student body at St. Stephen's, a diversity that spans race and ethnicity, religious beliefs and traditions, nationality, sexual orientation, and income level. I feel that, taken all together, these qualities make St. Stephen's a truly special place, and I don't think any other school in Houston can replicate the spirit of our school. My children are flourishing at the school, academically, artistically, emotionally, and spiritually. The teachers truly care about each individual student, and do whatever it takes to allow each child to thrive and develop in their own way. I am so happy to have such a wonderful place to send my children.
