From Stevenson School

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.
As a California school enlightened by a global sensibility, Stevenson is premised on a vision of education as the means by which we discover the world and contribute to its transformation, and the belief that one’s education is best pursued in the company of others, for others’ benefit as well as one’s own. Our mission includes three aims: to prepare students for success in both school and life beyond school, to foster their passion for learning and achievement, and to help them shape a joyful life.

    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 school is very strong academically and will definetly get you prepared for college.However, there is barely any diversity, most students are either white or Asian. Since the majority of students are international, it can also be difficult to make friends if you do not share their language or culture. Students here judge their peers on the occupation of their parents, their family's wealth, and intelligence. The sports here are below average at best. Everyone is required to do an after school activity so every sport other than golf and tennis are ultimately not very competitive.
    The teachers and the classes are really good, engaging, and quick-paced. The administration is very secretive and often hides things from the student body, but on smaller issues, are very transparent. The diversity is fairly poor though, racial, religious, socio-economic, political, are all mostly large majorities. This leaks into the school culture, and fuels a stereotypical high school hierarchy. There are also not a huge student body, so at times this feels amplified.
