Traditional Focus

As you know, in order for our students to achieve their dreams later in life, they must work hard now and learn the academic and social skills necessary to take them wherever they wish to go. We take this preparation very seriously.

Stewart Alternative Elementary school is Regional Lottery school and parents select Stewart for particular reasons. We value traits like EXCELLENCE, STRUCTURE, HARD WORK, PERSEVERANCE, LEADERSHIP, DEDICATION, ORDER, and INDEPENDENCE that are central to Stewart’s TRADITIONAL teaching and learning. We wish for each child to become a productive CITIZEN who makes wise decisions that make our communities and country better! At Stewart, we believe in dressing for success, so our students follow a uniform policy. We believe in a strong partnership between home and school, so our students will excel in all areas of life. We firmly believe in accountability so that teachers, parents and caregivers, and students are all responsible for our young learners’ academic success. It truly takes a village to ensure students’ success in school and life, and if you choose our school, it is our expectation that we work together towards this end.

  • German Village Soceity
