Stevenson Elementary School, Mountain View Whisman School District's alternative progressive school, is committed to educating the whole child in a collaborative community. Stevenson has been leading the region as a model for progressive education since 1996 and was founded on the fundamental belief in the importance of teachers, children, and parents working together to create a vibrant learning environment. Stevenson is committed to providing a balanced education that teaches to the whole child, incorporating the intellectual, creative, social, physical, and emotional growth of our students.

At Stevenson, we believe that by utilizing a developmental approach grounded in hands-on education, students will realize their full potential as independent thinkers, life-long learners, and responsible citizens. Our teaching methods expand your child's educational process in innovative ways through project-based learning, offsite/experiential learning, and robust co-curricular programs such as garden, cooking, and Arts Focus.

As a choice school within the district, Stevenson accepts students from all neighborhoods within the district through an enrollment lottery managed by the District, adheres to all California educational standards, and conforms to all public funding and staffing requirements. MVWSD presently does not allow inter-district transfers into Stevenson. Started originally as the PACT Program, Stevenson Elementary School is founded on the idea of the parent, child, teacher partnership. On one hand, dedicated teachers and administrators create and execute an alternative, integrated, developmental curriculum.

On the other hand, parents support teachers and contribute their interests and talents through classroom and community volunteering. Parents' participation in their children's education is key to their success. Stevenson parents help to enrich the curriculum and support the school's philosophy, applying the principles learned in Parent Ed both inside and outside of the classroom.
