Opened in 2008, our school is named after Olive Stephens, who served the town of Shady Shores as mayor for nearly four decades. We believe that ensuring high levels of success for all students requires a collaborative effort between staff, parents, students, and community members. We are thankful for the continued support of all of our stakeholders as we "build a community of learners for life!"
Anthony Xiao, a fifth-grade student at Stephens Elementary, was recently honored by the Texas Art Education Association by having his artwork featured across the state. Anthony’s artwork was selected as the centerpiece for marketing the TAEA’s annual conference.
Kimberly Griffith and Bethany Hendrickson, teachers at Stephens Elementary, have been as recipients of the 2015 Claudia A. Balach Teacher Researcher Award by the Professional Development School Research Special Interest Group of the American Educational Research Association.
Our school mission is to build a community of learners for life. This community of learners includes all Stephens staff as well as the students in our case. We are committed to working together with our parents and community members to ensure high levels of learning for all students.
