“On behalf of our school district and the parents of (child), I thank you for your advocacy in helping (child) achieve the academic and social goals developed. You have no idea how much this means to everyone associated with (child) and the progress he has made.”

-T.M. Case Manager


"Our son, (child), has been at Stepping Stone for almost 2 years. When he started at the school they welcomed him with open arms and he soon began to adjust to the new school. During his time at Stepping Stone we have seen such an improvement in him and his behaviors. The staff at Stepping Stone has taught him many skills that help him in his everyday life. We have seen a total 180 degree change in him for the better. (Child) teachers, aide, and the rest of the staff have helped our son immensely. We are very appreciative of this and our glad that he attends a school where they care so much for their students."

-C.G. Parent


"With tremendous gratitude we write this for a job well done through the commitment and dedication of the Stepping Stone staff. Our son is enjoying his sixth year with his Stepping Stone staff. (Child) is enjoying his sixth year with his Stepping Stone family and by way of his individualized plan with a generous staff to student ratio, has grown academically and emotionally, as he frequently speaks of pursuing a higher education after graduation. Our son is not seen as another face in the crowd, but treated as a whole individual who has learned accountability, responsibility and how to connect with other people through a higher level of self-esteem and confidence. Sending our son to Stepping Stone assures us that he will be well prepared for his future endeavors."

-E.E. Parent


"My son attended Stepping Stone School and things were desperate when the Director accepted him, but by the end of the 2 1/2 years he was able to go to High School and graduate. He has since received his Associate degree in Criminology; Bachelor's in Business, and just finished his Master's degree.  He worked full-time while going for his degrees. Had it not been for the loving care he received at Stepping Stone I am not sure where he would be today. Keep up the good wok and God bless all of you."

-E.M. Parent


"When I first arrived at Stepping Stone I was very quiet, shy, and angry almost every waking hour of each day. Now, I can see that this school has been a real learning experience because I've shed the shell of sorrow and took a step into the real world. This very new feat has come from the welcoming arms of the students and staff. I now look at it as fate itself and from the help of everyone at the school I can hold my head up high."

-M.E. Student, Excerpt from Graduation Speech


"Stepping Stone School has helped me greatly improve myself in various areas. I have definitely grown to be more tolerant and less judgmental of other people. My learning has improved as well from the first day walking through the school doors. While I am still unsure of what I would like to do in the future, I know that I will be more patient and make better choices."

-M.S. Student

"Thank you so much for being there for me, for fighting for me, and for showing me I can be me.  Thank you for not giving up on me even if I seemed like a lost cause and showing me there's more important things than what people say about me.  Thank you for fighting for me and not giving up on me.

- S.W. Student


"Words fall short when trying to express the happiness we felt watching (our son) graduate. The gifts you gave to (our son) were beyond count, beyond anything we hoped he could receive.  It is up to him now to use these gifts to the best of his ability.  Thank you for the work you do."
