I love the teachers ! The students are great people as well! The academics are a priority at this school which I really enjoy! Our sports teams are amazing too ! I love the different options we can participate in when it comes to extra curricular activities . If I may change something about this school it would be about class sizes . The class sizes are really large and the hallways get really crowded during the change of the bell. Other than this problem, it's a great school to attend too!

The teachers I've seen at Stevenson have been the greatest. I was scared for high school once I was getting out of Junior High but it ended up being really okay! There were maps around the school to help you find yourself and most people are okay with helping point you in the right direction. The only thing I've had a problem with at the school are students themselves. The hallways get really cluttered and hard to get through and people are often loud. My friends were always involved in activities like band, but the most afterschool-activity I did was enjoy a calm art club every Tuesday. I would say I've enjoyed being at Stevenson for my high school.
I originally was devastated I didn't get accepted into UCMST like my siblings, or IB was my 2nd choice. My parents wanted me to go to Regina or a private school but they let me choose. I was excited to chose Stevenson. I'm just so happy, much happier than my siblings who lived in a pressure cooker at MST & were always stressed out. I'm getting all A's and am taking AP courses (there's a lot to choose from). The teachers are amazing and I have great friends. I love going to school here everyday & the football games. My parents are happy too.
