There is alot school spirit. The activities are very entertaining. The teams are very talented as well. This goes for all sports. It has a very good performing arts program. The school is clean most of the time. The custodians are very friendly. Security is great. There has never been a serious incident. There are always fun activities leading up to certain events such as prom or homecoming. We have spirit week. When it comes to food, I wish that they would allow us to bring in our own food. They see it as competiton. Connection is slow in certain classrooms. The pep rallys are always fun.

Stephenson Highschool is a great place to figure out what you like to learn about. The school offers many classes that grabs your attention to hopefully make a decision to take that class at a higher level. Once the teacher sees that you really want to learn, they will not give up until they have taught you all that they can. Stephenson also offers a variety of extra curricular activities, such as, band, football, basketball, swimming, tennis, track and field, robotics, chess, cheerleading, dancing, and if you are not a sport or activity person, you can be a manager to any of these activities. This school has a place for everybody to fit in and find out what they are interested in doing in the future.
In my personal opinion Stephenson High School is a poor school when it pertains to education. The main focus of the school isn't driven towards academics. Rather, it is driven towards sports. Many of the teachers are very lazy, but at the same time controlling. The behavior of many of the students is terrible, and teachers and the administration don't care to ensure that each student attending the school receives the attention they need to succeed in the future. The lunch could also be better, sit takes like prison food. The teachers and the administration also have horrible attitudes toward the students.
