12 Parent Reviews for Robert Louis Stevenson School

This school is absolutely terrible, and exactly the opposite of "therapeutic". The administrative staff are abusive and do not know boundaries. Ric defends all of his actions by saying "this is a private school, and I follow my own rules". The administrators use threats and ultimatums to get what they ...  Read more

Amazing school, I'm a new student, and I absolutely love being here. It's the only school that has ever worked for me.

Stevenson saved my son. He had a great connection with the Dean when he first got there. So much so that he said, "for the first time, someone really understands how I feel". He didn't dread going to school any longer. He felt really comfortable and accepted. This school believed in my son and succeeded ...  Read more

I've worked at Stevenson for the past 9 years. I love this school! We have very little staff turnover and everyone works together well.

I agree with the review posted on July 19, 2011. It's a therapeutic school that my child needed therapy because of attending!!!!

My son came to Robert Louis Stevenson School after spending his 9th and 10th years of High School doing virtually nothing. His attendance record was terrible and his academic achievement worse. He is in his second year at Stevenson and has made great strides. He has learned how to be a student again ...  Read more

For the right child, this high school definitely deserves a look. My sister s son was in a fast track Manhattan private school. Due to a combination of factors, he fell off the track grades getting worse, social problems, and his mood and conduct hit bottom. I m not sure how my sister found it, but ...  Read more

As of May, 2011 the new Head of School has suddenly departed. There is only one psychologist on staff, also new in 2010. Though it is labeled a 'therapeutic' school, the advisors have no professional training and a great deal of responsibility. Parents are kept at a distance. Academics are mediocre. ...  Read more

The school is a perfect fit for kids who are out-of-place elsewhere. The teachers and other staff take the time to really know each student's strengths and weaknesses, and as a result, build a daily experience that caters to those strengths while supporting the weaknesses. The kids have daily Advising ...  Read more
