On Extracurriculars: The variety of clubs and organizations is amazing, you will be shunned if you aren't atleast in 2 clubs.

On Food: The variety is great and the good is mostly rich and delicious. I just wish some of the healthier foods weren't so expensive.

On Sports & Fitness: Huge amount of state champs every year, sports is probably the best thing about Stevenson.

On Administration & Policies: The new concept of social-emotional learning is probably the most useless thing that Stevenson has come up with. Not only does it screw up the standard grading system (A's, B's, etc.) and replace it with numbers, even some of the faculty is making fun of it. This "program" and the effort spent towards is should be used for something else, such as fixing the leaky roofs and getting heaters.

High School Senior

On Administration & Policies: The policies are not very strict, but there haven't been many problems in regards to bullying or the dress code.
