Opened in 1994, Robert L. Stevens School was designed in a process of collaboration with the community it serves and attracted a dedicated group of professionals who wanted to be part of creating a unique 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 our mission and vision.

Our school serves approximately 550 Transitional Kindergarten through sixth grade students, currently without any combined grade classes. We feature a Transitional Kindergarten program for our youngest learners that stresses academic and social readiness and is distinctly different from Kindergarten. For our sixth graders, we have created a unique “Transition to Middle School” model which allows for sheltered subject specific instruction in English/Language Arts, Mathematics and History/Science, helping students to be better prepared for the next step in their educations.
We are proud of our well trained and highly experienced staff that 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-three classroom teachers, two resource specialist teachers, an English language development teacher, a Title One reading teacher, a professional school counselor, a part-time school nurse, a part-time speech pathologist, a part time psychologist/behaviorist and a principal. Our support staff includes an office manager, an office assistant, a bilingual community liaison, a library manager, two custodians, a head cook and an assistant cook, thirteen instructional assistants and special student support instructional assistants.
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.
