What can I say? Good and bad. Strong community, great staff, but parents who get together and try to bully their agenda into the runnng of the school.

Awful. We feel trapped here bc it’s our community and our child’s best friends are here and it would be devastating for her if she were transferred. We have been told by other parents that if you can get through kindergarten it gets a lot better, but it makes me sick to see what happens in kindie, the lack of leadership and the lack of caring for these poor little kids. Parents have no voice, it seems. My warning to you is if you have a kid who is going to kindergarten next year, DONT RISK IT. Find another school for kindie. If you do risk it and get the burned out teacher, please please listen to your kids, and believe them. It is that bad, and probably worse than they are able to convey. The psychological damage to our families and others in this class is going to take a long time to fix. The trust in our school leadership will never be fixed. We shouldn’t have had to see the worst of Seattle Public Schools our first year in, but at least now we know what we are dealing with. On the bright side, the Kid’s Club is awesome and a great antidote to the hell of the school day.

Good. Students will get what they need academically but not necessarily be stretched. The parent community is wonderful and many of them are very generous with their time and resources. The larger Capitol Hill neighborhood is very supportive of Stevens.

Absolutely terrible. Heartbreaking. Disappointing. Shocking. Saddening. I am so glad my child has transferred out.

This school has been a blessing for our family. After trying a private school in kindergarten that didn't work, we decided to try our home school and have been thrilled with our experience. The teachers are very experienced and work with students of all needs and abilities. We have appreciated their flexibility and understanding as well as the inclusion of arts curriculum into the instruction. The school atmosphere is very caring, and the staff makes it a point to get to know the families. After going the private school route, we have found one of the greatest pleasures to be in getting to know our neighbors and having local play dates as opposed to setting things up across town. The PTA is very active and involved while at the same time does not pressure families to exceed their financial or time abilities. This has been a great fit for our family!
