    My family has had the most hectic year of our lives. Due to the economy we have been forced to move more times than I care to admit having drug our children in and out of four schools throughout the year. By far Steward was the best!!! The principal is the most caring sensitive wonderful woman I have had the pleasure of working with. The program itself seemed very intensive for those intent on academics. My daughter absolutely loved the school and felt at home with the adults and children. I can only hope next year proves better and my daughter can find a new school home. I do not think I can articulate exactly how wonderful this school was for my daughter and myself. They made us feel very welcomed!!! I will miss them greatly!

    This school is a dream come true. The staff members are enthusiastic the leadership is strong and the community is top notch. I cannot imagine my child gettng a better education even in a private school. The parent involvement certainly makes a difference. Steward School offers high quality education in a quiet country setting.
