I believe that the atmosphere and the people around Stevens High School are amazing. The administration is extremely friendly and majority of the teachers genuinely care about you and your life. Stevens offers a variety of classes to help you get ahead for college and become more advanced. The extra curricular activities are always so much fun, and everyone there always shows a lot of school spirit. It has been a very fun environment to spend my last 4 years in!

The staff are all wonderful people, and the teachers are excellent. The principal is nice and interacts with the students. The only thing I would say they should improve on is expanding their school and getting a fine arts wing. The security guards are awesome and helpful. Just an overall positive and happy atmosphere, I love it!
Stevens High School is a place where everywhere you turn you will find addiction. Drugs are a huge problem here and as a person who doesn't partake in these activities, I hate it. I do not think the staff has enough experience to recognize the telltale signs of someone who is drunk or high. I do love the teachers we have here. I think everywhere you go you can find a teacher who is there to help you. Our fine arts (Drama) teacher is phenomenal! He gets everyone excited about the possibilities of the fine art careers. The sports program is great, except if you're involved in softball. Being apart of a non sanctioned sports sucks. We have to shell out our own money for things other sports don't have to. We win more championships than most the sports that are sanctioned.
