Stevenson is a day and boarding community in which students learn to read, write, observe, calculate, research, analyze, innovate, speak, listen, imagine, laugh, collaborate, and dare and, in the process, prepare for the challenges they will encounter in college and the world. This is also a community in which adults, inspired by a sense of shared purpose, work consciously together to model, as often as possible, a collective engagement with life that we wish our students to emulate.

Stevenson School Reviews
Stevenson absolutely should (and needs to) do more for increasing its diversity and financial aid. At my time, only <30% of students were on some aid of any sort, and the result is a relatively homogeneous student body. The faculty were tremendously supportive of me (low-income) but the administration wasn't quite there. While I do recognize it's a tricky business being supportive of low-income/otherwise-marginalized students while also making ends meet, it's tremendously important. Stevenson is absolutely capable of making these changes and has an obligation to (beyond "Diversity Week" and guest speakers). If you're reading this and you're involved with Stevenson, it should be your priority to support these goals too!
The one area where there could be improvement is college placement. The school is small, and the kids are smart, worldly, nice, and independent. The boarders need more support in the college search process. The students need to be supported in their goals, taking challenging classes and applying to top schools if that is their goal. I got the feeling the school supported certain favorite students more than other kids - even when those other students had similar or better profiles and contributions to the school. Please do more with the college process to help the graduates achieve their goals.
