About Our School

It is my pleasure to welcome you to Stepney Elementary School, a Connecticut School of Distinction.

Our mission is to identify and meet the needs of the whole child by providing a safe, supportive and caring learning environment to ensure that all students reach their full potential as lifelong learners and responsible citizens. Every member of our learning community: students, teachers, parents, resource staff and administration puts this into practice by demonstrating excellence in all they do while caring for each other every day.

To achieve our mission, staff experience on-going professional learning activities. We work collaboratively as professional teams to strengthen our student-centered classrooms in order to develop a rigorous, inquiry-based curriculum for all.

We have a strong community partnership with teachers and parents working together to provide a balanced educational program. The Parent Teacher Organization is a vibrant part of our community, offering many activities and programs to further develop and enrich our students both in and out of the classroom.

Stepney School is one of three elementary schools in Monroe, CT. The school population is 450 students in grades Kindergarten through five. Our class size is approximately 21 students per classroom. Students engage in various Unified Arts during the course of the school day as well as having the opportunity to further enrich their learning through our Arts and Imagination Program both before and after school.

Open and ongoing communication between the home and school is the hallmark of any great school. Our goal of ever enhanced communication to build upon the home/school relationship is carried out through our website, the School Messenger Program, District email and a simple phone call home.

We take pride in showing our Stepney Spirit each day and welcome you to visit and experience Stepney School.
