    US History map.jpg

    This summer, the history department is offering a US History course from June 14 to July 28. History Department Chair Dale Hinckley will teach the class. The class will be held Monday - Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. (no class July 4), leaving time for afternoon jobs, internships, volunteer work, or any other pursuit.

    The course offers an intensive immersion in the political, social, and cultural currents of the US from the colonial era to the present. The class includes lecture, discussion, formal debate, group and individual research, movies, and historical documentary videos.

    Taking US History over the summer can allow you to create a more personalized Stevenson experience in your junior and senior years, taking extra courses in the discipline you find most interesting. You can double up on science courses, take another language, delve more deeply into the arts, or make time for classes such as AP Art History, Robotics, Pre-Engineering, etc.

    There is a $300 deposit due by May 15. The total cost for the class is $975. Tuition must be paid in full by June 1.

    For information and to complete the registration page please click here. If you have any questions, please contact Mr. Hinckley by email at dhinckley@stevensonschool.org or by phone (cell) 831-682-4237.

    On Wednesday, April 12, nearly 40 students and faculty attended the student-run club Liberty in North Korea movie night. The club showed the documentary "The People's Crisis," which highlights the struggles North Korean citizens face in North Korea. After watching the documentary, students had a discussion about the current humanitarian challenges facing its people. If you would like to learn more, here is a shorter video about changing the way people view North Korea.

    KSPB Field Trip Redo.jpg

    On Tuesday, students from KSPB, and Stevenson's Radio classes, went on a fieldtrip to see radio in the "real world" and to connect with a Stevenson and KSPB alumnus. They visited David Hollander '86 to see his new broadcast studio for the radio show, "Protect Your Assets," which he hosts on several radio stations in the San Francisco Bay Area including KNBR.

    They also visited San Jose State University's student-run radio station KSJS. KSJS has been on the air for more than 50 years and is one of the premier university-level student-run radio stations on the west coast. Director of KSPB Mr. Matt Arruda stated, "Class trips like this are great opportunities for our students to see real-world examples of broadcasting. They are valuable experiences that demonstrate broadcasting is alive and well—especially here in California!"

  • Community Birthday Card Project

    Holly and Nikki Birthday Cards.JPG

    Since last October Holly Black '17 has been creating birthday cards for faculty, administrative and facilities staff, and students. What started as an appreciation project, developed into a way to also celebrate birthdays. Recognizing that not all birthday's fall during the academic school year, she has also taken the initiative to present cards on half birthdays for those whose birthday is during the summer. Recently it was Holly's birthday and the community returned the gesture. On behalf of the Stevenson community, Nikki Naquin '17 presented Holly with all of the cards signed by faculty, staff, and students. Holly hopes the project will continue on next year after she graduates.

  • Class Officers for 2017-18 Announced

    Earlier this week, students ran for class officer positions. Student Council is designed to represent the needs of the students, and this year with nearly 90% of freshmen, sophomore and juniors voting, the student voice was heard.

    Justin Clymo '93, director of activities, shared these thoughts following the announcement of the election results, "I want to thank all of those who chose to run for elected office. Choosing to run is a risky endeavor with no guarantee of success. It takes tremendous courage and school pride to run for office and you all deserve to be commended."

    Congratulations to the class officers for the 2017-18 school year!

  • Thank you! Grandparents and Special Friends Day


    GP Day PL.jpg

    The first Grandparents and Special Friends Day at the Pebble Beach Campus was a great success with almost 100 visitors. The weather started out cold and drizzly, but by late morning had turned into a perfect, sunny day. After mingling over coffee and hearing Dr. Hicks talk about Stevenson, our guests attended Assembly and classes, posed for photos with their loved ones, and enjoyed a delicious lunch. We heard words of gratitude and praise from grandparents, parents who were in attendance, and even some students!

    We in turn would like to extend our gratitude and praise to all of those who attended this special event; to our teachers who opened their classrooms to our guests; and to six very special parent volunteers who braved the early, chilly morning to welcome and assist our visitors—Lynda Abrams, Margaret Goldsmith, Corine Mink '87, Regan Mornhinweg, Jamie Roth, and Kelly Swette. We are already planning next year’s event and we’ll send a save-the-date this fall.
