Stevenson School offers a challenging academic program. Several support services are available to help parents and teachers insure the academic success of each student. Students with serious learning differences or limited English language skills may find the academic program difficult.

Part of academic success is organization. Students in grades 3-8 are provided a plan book by the school. Students are responsible for maintaining a written record of all school assignments. It is important for both parents and teachers to periodically check student plan books to make sure that they are being used effectively.
Teachers will mail progress reports when a student's academic achievement is not satisfactory. Inappropriate classroom behavior will also be communicated via progress reports. Progress reports will also note the successes of students or marked improvement in behavior and/or academics. The Head of School, advisor, and teacher all receive a copy of each progress report.
Each student in grades 6 through 8 is assigned a faculty advisor. Advisors are available to assist with students with every aspect of school life. Bi-weekly advisory meetings are held throughout the year.
Families may arrange for private tutoring sessions to be held on or off campus. A list of referrals is available.
