My name is Michael A. Grusak. I’m a Board Member and also the parent of a child who has attended St. Stephens Episcopal School since first grade – he’s now in 11th grade. We firmly believe in all that St. Stephens has to offer its students. The learning environment is excellent, the teachers are caring and well trained, and the administration is responsive to student and parent needs. We only have one more year with St. Stephens, which is a real shame. However, my wife and I believe that St. Stephen’s has done a tremendous job in preparing our son for college, and all that life will bring him in the years ahead. I highly recommend this school to anyone who wishes to see their child grow, and learn, and be challenged, in a wonderful, nurturing environment.

From 18 months to 18 years, St. Stephen's has developed an integrated curriculum pathway that "follows the student" in ensuring his or her holistic development using the Montessori and IB philosophies and pedagogies. As a board member of five years it has been exciting to be a member of a school of excellence that truly puts the student and his or her growth first in all that we do. I can honestly say the board works hard to assist the head of school and his faculty and staff in all of the endeavors that must be accomplished to maintain a school of excellence and to pursue a culture of continuous improvement. The dedication and passion that exist within the faculty, staff and board is truly inspiring and makes for an environment where it is actually "fun" to attend board meetings and be actively engaged in school activities. SSESH is a very special place that has positively impacted not only the lives of its students but also the lives of the adults who are in its community.

I am a board member and the parent of a former St Stephen's student. As a parent, I was very pleased with the richness and depth of study offered, as well as life application teaching methods. As a board member, I am fortunate to work with others (board, faculty, staff) who demonstrate a high level of passion for and commitment to creating and sustaining an exceptional learning environment at St Stephen's.

I currently serve as a Board member of St. Stephen's Episcopal School Houston. My daughter also attended as a student. I find St. Stephen's to be a rich educational environment which nurtures critical thinking and cultivates students wholistically. The board is proactive and creative; the faculty is exceptional and the administration is deeply committed. I highly recommend St. Stephen's.

St. Stephen's Episcopal School's faculty, staff and administration are committed to providing an extraordinary Montessori based education in a respectful, nurturing, diverse and caring environment. Knowledge, thoughtful decision making and service to others are instilled in our students throughout their educational journey. Our school is enriched by an active, involved and supportive parent and family community.
