Welcome To Stevenson Elementary School


     Stevenson Elementary is a large single track year-round school that was built in the 1930’s and that has a very dedicated staff and a marvelous, culturally diversified student body.

      Our teaching staff provides a high quality educational program consistent with the LBUSD Content Standards. Communication with parents about student’s progress and behavior is an important element of our academic program. Regular homework assignments also serve to reinforce classroom learning. School Rules are enforced by all staff to create a safe and orderly environment.

     Numerous programs supplement the core curriculum and focus on helping students reach their full potential. Among these additional programs are: Suzuki Strings Program, Healthy Start, site-based mental health services, LB Parks Recreation week-end supervision, Reading Recovery for 1st graders, Reaching Up Program, Intersession classes for at-risk students and our monthly Principal’s Award Ceremony. Many intervention programs have helped our students make gains in their SAT9 test scores.

    Stevenson offers a unique music magnet program, the Stevenson Suzuki Strings. More than 100 students, from Kindergarten to 5th grade, receive individualized instruction in the violin or cello, and enjoy performing frequently at school and in the community. 

     Staff work together to support and ensure effective instruction. Many staff members serve in leadership roles to assist new teachers and to implement effective instructional practices, such as Writer's Workshop and TEAM science and Essential Elements of Effective Instruction (EEEI), Guided Reading and ELD strategies.
