I had a wonderful experience at Stephenson High School! We had great teachers and administrators. We were a very diverse school and everyone got along with everyone. The sports teams were all becoming tops in each sport within the division. With all of that, there was still a great emphasis on academics and we were prepared very well for state testing as well as standardized testing. The community was very supportive and I always felt safe in and out of schools and a various sporting events. Once I retire from the military next year I plan on moving back to the Stone Mountain/Lithonia area so that my daughter and nephew can attend Stephenson High school and get the same wonderful experience I had.

My overall experience at Stephenson high school has been outstanding.The students are always working together to make our school a better place and help provide a positive and fun experience for new students joining the team. As a leader at my school being the President of a club called DECA I'm able to inspire and encourage my peers to stay focused and never give up no matter how hard or challenging their academic circumstances becomes. School is all about learning and growing mentally and at Stephenson High School, the staff as well as the administrators make sure students are earning the proper credit for their hard-work and dedication.
What I like about Stephenson High school is that the principal is very involved outside of his office and that you can kind of build a very good student- staff relationship with almost anyone there. The athletic department at Stephenson High school is top-notch especially the football team, cheer squad and track & field team. The focus on making sure each scholar that attends gets the needed information to be successful in the current as well as future classes.
