Having been in both the Westlake and Dripping Springs school districts as a parent with a student, St. Stephen's, in Wimberley, provides a caring environment in which the teachers, staff and headmaster know everyone by name. It is my favorite elementary and middle school, and having been in Westlake, a high- performing and prestigious school district, that speaks volumes.

The value we receive for less than a $1,000 pers month is considerable. My daughter's national test scores exceed the average private school's by a large margin. She is happy, confident, and motivated to learn more. Parents know one another and help each other when needed since their children stay together for a school career. Most of all, the children are well-mannered and good citizens.

Children start their days with music, and end with their headmaster and teachers waving them off, with a kind word for each. Their experiential science program catalyzes learning, with hands-on activities that thoroughly motivate the children to fully engage and explore.

Maths, social sciences, history and Spanish fill the days with challenge. P.E. every day exercises every child until they are tired. Their archery and tennis programs stimulate healthy team attitudes. The music and art programs lead to children being able to read music, play instruments, and truly enjoy the value of music and art. The products of art classes are displayed throughout the schools, and demonstrate creativity.

Small classes, an attractive campus reminiscent of the missions in San Antonio, with courtyards and fountains around which the children and teachers gather for lunch and study. Great staff and teachers, and a headmaster who cares and spends time with the students. For those looking for a best practice in what a school should be for kids, St. Stephen's is it.

This isn't exactly a review, but a response to the other review posted back in 2006. I believe the poster is referring to St. Stephen's School in Austin, not Wimberley. I attend church at St. Stephen's Episcopal in Wimberley and, although it is indeed a lovely Hill Country campus, there is no lake to walk to and limited views as it is a highly treed campus and not on a hill. There is, however, a wonderful nature trail and labyrinth for meditation. Also, I am not aware of any portable buidings and have always found the Chapel to be quite chilly even in the summer.

That said, I know many of the teachers, students and parents at St. Stephen's Episcopal School in Wimberley and find it to be a warm, loving and academically excellent place to learn.

Beautiful campus. Many interesting teachers. Have had a couple new teachers that aren't up to par. Accessible staff. Friendly, interesting student body, Very unique campus, beautiful views. You can even walk down to the lake from the campus! Very academically challenging and very prestigious which can be seen by the colleges that the student body is accepted too. Perfect size, interesting individuals and staff.
