    I mentor a kid attending Stevens Elementary. Despite going to class every day the kid cannot read or write and yet gets passed on to the next grade. Trying to engage the teachers and principal gets a stiff rejection. Not surprisingly the kid lacks a supportive parent but the school is failing the kid just as much as the single parent. There is no excuse for this kid to not even learn the basics of reading and writing and to be passed on year after year until the kid drops out and the school district no longer has to worry about it (but the rest of society does!). I am so glad that my children will not be attending this school. With the positive reviews I suppose it's fair to say that kids with supportive and active parents do well here but that's likely the case in any school isn't it? In Seattle this reality leaves a lot of kids to fail and they do.

    I wish I could give Stevens 5 stars. I've had multiple children there for awhile. Stevens has many wonderful traits -- dedicated parent volunteers some truly fantastic teachers wonderful diversity. But the district is trying its hardest it seems to ruin Stevens. Some classes have 28-29 kids in them in early grades. How is the most wonderful teacher in the world able to be truly effective with that many students? And the district really needs to get a handle on teacher evaluations and marginal teachers -- there are a tiny number of ineffective teachers at Stevens but ugh if you get one for your own kid. Though I'm guessing this is a district-wide problem.

    Stevens is a terrific elementary school. We've experienced excellent teaching all the way through (my kids are now in 3th and 5th grades). The school is wonderfully diverse with very strong parent involvement. I'm convinced that my kids got better teachers than I could have paid for in a private school.

    Great cultural diversity among students and stunningly effective PTSA. You rich girls sure know how to fundraise!

    Amazingly good public school with tremendous support from family parents and the community located in a tolerant progressive multicultural setting. This school represents 'real' America at its best.

    Stevens is excellent. The community is genuinely diverse (social/econ) and deeply committed to the education of its children. The principal works very closely with the teachers and parents to make sure school needs are being prioritized and met. The PTA raises additional funds to fill the gaps that are mutually agreed upon by the parents and teachers.

    Stevens is a very very good school It has good economic and ethnic diversity. The PTSA raises significant money to support classroom education and other enrichment. The community is friendly and supportive.
