At St. Stephen’s, we affirm individuality. We question everything. We build relationships. We practice service and we believe.  The learning experience should be personal, active, engaging and challenge students to step into their stretch zone.  At St. Stephen’s, it is. Through Montessori and International Middle Years Curriculum, we give students the freedom to explore big ideas and the responsibility of expressing mastery.  School life is rooted in collaboration among a diverse body, creatively applying knowledge and actively pursuing one's affinity and place in the world.
