St. Stephen Of Hungary School is an award-winning Pre-Kindergarten through Eighth Grade Catholic school in Manhattan. It was selected as a Project YESS award winner and with the award money for this prestigious distinction the school decided to expand its early childhood department. They added a new classroom and expanded their playground area to make preschool better for students and parents alike.
St. Stephen Of Hungary seeks to get each child active in the learning process through active participation. The curriculum is based on the educational philosophy of Jean Piaget.
Learning begins with preschool age 3 and goes through eighth grade. The basis of the classroom education is social studies and teachers use this platform as the foundation for all learning and subject areas.
Foreign language learning is an important concept at St. Stephen. A robust French language program is taught at the school starting with children in the Pre-K 3 program. Not only do students learn French, but they are also given a good grounding in French culture. Studies outside the classroom enhance what is taught inside the classroom and give the children a fuller educational experience.
St. Stephen is also a proud winner of two Blackboard Awards. St. Stephen teacher Flo Evans won the Teacher of the Year Award in 2010 and the school itself won the Elementary School Rising Star Award in 2006.
Students and faculty at St. Stephen Of Hungary consistently win honors and achieve high accomplishments. Parents can be proud to send their children to this school of distinction.
In addition to its core curriculum, St. Stephen Of Hungary has several enrichment programs for students in all grades. These include music, technology, a computer lab, a library program, athletics, a business lab, after school program, and Kids Club.
Open House previews for the 2013 school year begin in April and May 2012. Be sure to contact St. Stephen to learn more about the school.
