Is My Child Gifted?

As a new parent some 30 years ago, Kiyo Morse didn't recognize her first child's extraordinary development as signs of giftedness. At 10-days-old, Morse's daughter was so unusually alert that a family friend said the way she was looking at him was "too weird." ...

Comfortable in His Own Skin

Since moving our elementary-age son to Steppingstone about a year and a half ago, he has blossomed in ways that we as parents couldn't have imagined when we made that decision to move him.

My Son is Changed for the Better

Fulfilling His Dream and Promise

My son is graduating from Steppingstone this year. He will be going to a High School that wants him, not just to a high school that he wants. He has been at Steppingstone School since 2nd grade, and in these years I have had my moments of doubt on whether I am doing the right thing for him. But just like we trust our loved one's life with a physician or surgeon, I trusted his education to Steppingstone. I came to realize that Kiyo and the team know what they are doing, and I need to trust them…

Empowering Environment

When I came to Steppingstone in the sixth grade I had numerous behavioral problems to work through. Also, I had not been challenged in academics for quite some time. Through Kiyo's and Keiko's (my pre high school teacher) encouragement, I overcame the challenge. Accelerated work has boosted my confidence, and is the key attribute for my success today.

I graduated from Steppingstone with an unbreakable will that POWERED me through the tough academic and social environment of high school…
