Welcome! From the Principal’s desk

Dear families and community members,

At Stephen Olney, students are at the center of everything we do. Rigor, diversity, inclusion, individualism, creativity, and new ideas are the fabric of our school, where the youngest learners start their journey and flourish each step of the way. Our attentive, professional, and encouraging staff provide a strong support system for our students that shows children they are appreciated and heard.

While our school is a learning institute, there is a lot more that happens here than curriculum lessons and academics. Students here befriend many of their peers for the first time, creating lifelong friendships. Children at Stephen Olney catch the “learning bug,” and that love for learning only strengthens throughout their time at our school. Here, students dive into a wealth of knowledge, but start to see that learning is not temporary – it is a lifelong skill, as much as it is an endless journey all its own.

We are thankful to teach these energetic, curious, and inquisitive young learners every day, and our lives are made more whole by their presence. We’re here to partner with every student and their families to ensure everyone is able to make the most of the Stephen Olney experience.

With gratitude,

Janine Napolitano
