A Message from our Principal

Picture of Mrs. Keane working with students.

At SSES our mission is to keep students at the forefront of everything we do. Our goal is to meet the needs of the whole child, with our top-level educators, Student Services department,  and phenomenal staff members.  Every staff member traces an “S” on their chests to represent the students we serve.  Students are our passion and we love serving the St. Stephens community. Thank you for trusting us with your children as we work together to prepare them for their future endeavors. As your students embark on their educational journeys, please know that we will work together to help them become successful, global citizens."
