Stephens Elementary School
Empowering Lifelong Learners
Welcome to Stephens Elementary
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!"
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.
