    Teachers: Stevenson is truly a high class education institution. I could not imagine going to high school anywhere else. While it is quite competitive academically, it has really prepared me for life beyond high school. I have learned the necessity of hard work and dedication, and have gotten to work with some of the most amazing teachers. Some of these teachers have gone above and beyond what I would expect and have had a huge impact on me both as a student and as a learner and individual. The grading is tough because many of the kids here are well above average. While it is hard, it has taught me how important it is to challenge myself and work just a little harder each day.
