I loved Stevenson (alum, Class of '15), so this comment should be taken as a critique for improvement rather than a summation of my experience (if it wasn't stellar, I wouldn't mention it).

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!

Stevenson is an amazing school. The students here bring all different perspectives and are super nice, involved, smart, and care about each other and the world. I am so thankful for the opportunity to have gone to school here, and my peers and I have so much to bring to any college and career in the future. Most of the students are very involved in the school and EC activities.
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.
Stevenson School is a boarding and day school in Pebble Beach, California. In my years at Stevenson School, I've had a great experience. The faculty and staff are very accommodating. Similarly, the students are mature, well-rounded, and kind. This is an academically rigorous school; however, there are plenty of resources available in order to ensure each student's success. Overall, I am pleased with the school; however, I would definitely like to see the cafeteria food improve.
