Open Quote We love the school and is diversity of learning. We have 2 children in the Spanish immersion program and its amazing to see their learning growth over the past 2.5 years Close Quote

Open Quote Stedman is a very strong and nurturing community with talented leadership and an active PTA of involved parents who are working together to create meaningful experiences for the students and providing support and resources to the staff and parents. In the 2019/2020 school year, 3rd-5th graders' math results were very high. 3rd graders, for example, had the second highest scores in the district, just behind Polaris (a gifted and talented magnet school). Their Spanish immersion program is wonderful. We currently have our child in Spanish Kinder and absolutely love it (as does our child).
From experience, I recognize what a stressful experience the Choice process can be. If you can, take a moment and watch this 5-minute video from the non-profit "Park Hill Neighbors for Equity in Education" (PHNEE). It provides a larger picture on the school boundaries and the impact (both positive and negative) the Choice system can have on our schools and communities. https://phnee.org/oneparkhill/.

Here's also a link to learn more about Stedman's Principal, who was just recently featured on the TODAY show, as well as on the school's academic performance ("SPF Results - Showing Growth" from Oct. 22, 2019): http://stedman.dpsk12.org/category/featured/

Good luck in your Choice journey! Close Quote

Open Quote As a parent, we love the amazing community at Stedman. We love having the option of a Traditional track, as well as a Dual Language (Spanish) track. As a small neighborhood school, all the staff and teachers know me and my student. Our child has had a wonderful experience learning and growing at Stedman! Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
