St. Stephens prides itself on small class sizes which allow our qualified teachers more time for individual attention to students. The average class has a student to teacher ratio of 18/1 with many classes having a teacher’s aide which is not included in this ratio. We feel the emphasis of small class size has a direct impact on student learning and outcomes which is evident in our consistently high ranking by Business First Magazine. St Stephens is ranked as the highest achieving school on Grand Island and has the Grand Island teacher of the year on their staff. Our elementary school is ranked in the top 8% of all 282 elementary schools in Western New York while the middle school is ranked in the top 10% of all 275 middle schools in Western New York. The combination of small class size, qualified teachers, sound curriculum mapping and faith based education is the reason St. Stephens is the logical choice for your child's education.
