Stephensville Elementary school is a small, rural school in Lower St. Martin Parish. In fact, it is the only school in Lower St. Martin Parish. Stephensville Elementary hosts students from Pre-kindergarten to eighth grade. The families and tight-knit community are at the heart of Stephensville Elementary. The sense of community emanates throughout the school's day to day operations. Many of the teachers who work here come from Lower St. Martin Parish which further increases the bonds of the school and the community. Faculty members and parents are often times friends, family, and neighbors. We have built a great amount of trust within the community, and we honor the old adage that says, "It takes a community to raise a child". The students of Stephensville are literally and figuratively, our children. We desperately want to see them succeed, and we aim to capitalize on every opportunity to teach them to be productive, happy, and successful members of society. Our sense of community is the reason for our success.
