Working at St. Stephen's

St. Stephen’s embraces a continuum of education where each developmental stage of the child is considered. St. Stephen’s is the only school in the United States that has a combined program that includes Montessori and the International Middle Years Curriculum (IMYC). At St. Stephen’s, we have a tradition of excellence and educational leadership that offers inquisitive, inspired and creative students a global framework for learning and engaging. This combination of curricula inspires students towards spiritual growth, creative expression, responsible citizenship and academic success in higher education.

Message from Jerri King, Head of School

At St. Stephen’s Episcopal School – Houston we encourage our faculty, staff and students to be independent thinkers, to value diversity and to recognize that all of us are spiritual human beings, despite different religious practices we may have.

As I interview candidates for teaching and staff positions, I have a strong desire to get to know each candidate and to understand what drives them to want to work with and teach our students. 

Located in the heart of Houston Montrose, the campus vibrates with activity and joy. As the only Episcopal School in the Diocese of Texas that offers Montessori, the International Baccalaureate Programme, and the first American school in the U.S. that uses the International Middles Years Curriculum for its 7th and 8th grade students, St. Stephen’s is on the cutting edge of 21st century learning. 

At St. Stephen’s: 

  • We are committed to providing students with the best education in Houston.

  • We welcome all students, employees and families with respect.

  • We believe each of us is a spiritual human being who has a north star that guides us in what we do and how we treat one another.

If St. Stephen’s School sounds like a place where you would like to share your time and talents, I invite you to contact me. 

In Peace,

Jerri King
Head of School
