Stepping Stone School is excited to announce flexible learning options for school age children this fall! Some families may choose to have their children attend elementary school full-time, part-time, with an adjusted schedule, or simply learn from home. We have upgraded our environments to meet the needs of our school-age children who will be completing their ISD or private school work with us!
We provide safe, clean individualized learning areas for children, 
as well as enhancing Stepping Stone School’s curriculum to fully support TEA guidelines!
This fall Stepping Stone School will be providing:

  • A safe, clean and supportive learning environment
  • Safe social distancing, other sanitary practices, and spaced seating
  • Online Private/ISD curriculum support from our faculty with homework assistance
  • Flexible schedules
