Values at Stevenson

Stevenson values are a reflection of, and a testament to, its rich 60-year history and diverse cultural community.


Dr. Bill Rolland, our school chaplain, speaks regularly to students about ethics, values-based decision-making, and the importance of being a positive role model to others. In the video below, he addresses a recent assembly and speaks about the importance of disregarding labels that other people may have been placed on you.

Community Service

Service learning is also an integral part of the Stevenson experience, and both campuses are actively engaged in outreach programs that benefit both our local and global communities. Student community service projects include the Red Cross Blood Drive and the annual "Walk for Hope." Read about a couple of these student community outreach projects on the right.


Good sportsmanship and demonstrating respect for others on the playing field are key philosophies of Stevenson's athletic program. For more information, read this Philosophy of Our Athletic Program.

Reaching Out


Stevenson students lead and participate in several community outreach and service learning projects throughout the year.


The varsity girls soccer team visited the Boys and Girls Club of Monterey County in Seaside. The team got into the Christmas spirit by taking a tour of the facility and wrapping presents for the Adopt-a-Family program. The girls, along with coaches Hillel Rom and Jon Kemmerer, had an evening filled with presents, dancing, and holiday fun, while donating their time to a great community service program.

Members of the Stevenson boys basketball team volunteered at the Northern California Special Olympics bowling championships. About a dozen students joined coaches Matt Arruda and Nate Rede, along with Nora Peyton of the Stevenson Advancement Office, in this inspiring adventure as they journeyed to the Valley Center Bowl in Salinas to give back to their community.

School Blessing


To celebrate and acknowledge our school's namesake Robert Louis Stevenson, each campus has chosen a poem by Stevenson to use as its school blessing. The poems are simple, yet capture the universal themes of humility, courage, honesty, and faith.
