Being at St. Stephens Lutheran School for 9 years set me up to achieve excellence in my academic career. The rigorous curriculum and excellent teachers created a solid foundation for me to build on to, entering high school ready to tackle the heavy workload and challenging courses and eventually begin learning for my career path. Mrs Butler and her high expectations in the area of science helped me through both high school and college biology, both of which I was at the top of my classes. All of my teachers were dedicated to my learning and went above and beyond to ensure everyone in their classes learned the curriculum. SSLS helped me get to where I am today.
