Stevenson High School has incredible resources-- the teachers are great, the funding is generous, there are countless clubs, and the curriculum is challenging.

That being said, should you choose to take the most challenging curriculum and surround yourself with Stevenson's brightest...

The highly successful students at this school have created a toxic environment, likely because there are so many astoundingly accomplished individuals. In a big school, it's hard not to have a particularly competitive student body. However, it is important to note that college admissions and the overall environment are much more competitive here than any other high school in the area.
