Horrible school!! It is more of a prison than it is a school. Don't be fooled by the high test scores either. The school forces any low performing student out prior to the 3rd grade FCAT's. Students are belitttled by the Principle on a daily basis. He, Mr. Corneau, singles out these little children in front of the other kids, and makes an example of them to scare the other kids to follow his laws. The school has a strict "closed door" policy and will not let visitors, parents, or anyone else into the school without being very, very carefully monitored.
It is the "School of the Arts" yet there is absolutely no artwork displayed throughout the school. They constantly are asking for money, but the funds they receive are not utilized to enhance the education of the children. I could go on for hours. The board of education is aware of the corruption at the school, but they choose to turn the other cheek to it.
I wanted to write this for the sake of any person who may be considering sending their child to Stevenson in the future. I've heard many people say that the parents who complain about this school simply have children who can't "keep up" academically. A more appropriate description should be that anyone, student or parent, who is a leader, should not attend this school. They do not want strong individuals. The school will break down your child and clone him or her to their beliefs. This looks good in quick observations, the hallways are quiet, the kids are all in line, and they all look the same. But if you listen carefully, and look hard enough, you will see tears in the children's eyes. You will also see entire classes being punished and humiliated because of the actions of one or two classmates. There is absolutely zero positive reinforcement. They simply bully, embarrass, and abuse the children in the school.
Please, look into other options for your child/children. You will be glad you did.
