We welcome you to Robert L. Stevens School, home of the Dolphins. As a staff and school community, we strive for excellence in all we do. We take pride in maintaining our clean, comfortable facilities and our safe and beautiful campus. We emphasize healthy living with nutritious and delicious school lunches and an emphasis on wellbeing and physical fitness. We constantly refine our educational programs in order to better meet the individual needs and develop the special gifts of each of our students. We work together to promote understanding and empathy and to prepare our children to be responsible decision makers and respectful world citizens. We emphasize the positive and celebrate accomplishments for we believe success leads to more of the same. Like our mascot the dolphin, we are talented, cooperative and fun-loving. We invite you to visit our "pod" as we are proud to share the R.L. Stevens Spirit!
Robert L. Stevens School was honored as a California Distinguished School in 2008 for our continued student achievement and the excellent climate for learning that our school community provides. In 2009 and 2010 R. L. Stevens received the Title 1 Academic Achievement Award. Opened in 1994, the school was designed in a process of collaboration with the community it serves. It attracted a dedicated group of teachers who wanted to be part of creating this special environment for learning to occur. Both the school’s architecture and its educational focus are built from a strong center. Displays of student writing, artwork and learning projects welcome the visitor, dignify the learning that takes places and reflect the mission and vision of our unique and dedicated group of professionals. Our school serves approximately 530 kindergarten through sixth grade students. We are proud of our well trained and highly experienced staff. They are exceptionally creative, embrace change, and welcome the challenge of creating a cohesive school community based on collaboration and respect. Our credentialed staff includes a total of twenty seven classroom teachers, a Resource Specialist Teacher, an English Language Development Teacher, a Title One Teacher and a Principal. The following personnel provide support: an Office Manager, a School Secretary, a Library Manager, two Custodians, a Special Education Instructional Assistant, an English Language Development Instructional Assistant, a part-time school nurse, a part time counseling intern and sixteen classroom Instructional Assistants. Robert L. Stevens School hosts a before and after school daycare program, an English Language Development Program, a Title I Reading/Language Arts Program, an AmeriCorps tutoring and after-school program in conjunction with CalSERVES and a United Way Schools of Hope Reading Assistance Program in first grade . We also have an active Parent Teacher Club (PTC), a School Site Council and an English Language Advisory Council. We are fortunate to be able to provide class size reduction in kindergarten through third grade.
