I'm the parent of a 6-year-old and a 4-year-old at St. Stephen's. I have been extremely happy with the education my children are receiving at this wonderful school. When I pick up my children from their classrooms each day, they are excited, inspired, and full of new information. It is not at all unusual for my children to ask me to show them pictures or read them books about the subjects they have encountered at school. Because of the Montessori principles and the truly exceptional teachers, the students are encouraged to move at their own speed, such that they are always challenged just enough and never bored. The student body is diverse, and many of the children come from international families like ours. This, as well as the school's spirit, fosters a community of acceptance, tolerance, and intellectual curiosity in other points of view and cultures. As a family, we are very excited that St. Stephen's is adopting an IB curriculum for its high school, which we believe will provide an excellent opportunity for our children. We feel extremely fortunate to have found this fantastic school, and part of our decision to settle in the Houston area is based on the fact that we want our kids to continue to attend St. Stephen's.
