Stevens Elementary School


Isaac I. Stevens Elementary School

Our History

Stevens Elementary is named after Isaac Ingalls Stevens, Washington State’s first territorial governor.  The school opened its doors to neighborhood families and children in 1906.  The school is considered one of Washington State’s Historic Schools.

The building was remodeled in 2001, maintaining many of the original features, such as the beautiful hardwood stairways, high ceilings and some nooks and crannies (e.g., the art loft).
Today, Stevens serves students, kindergarten through fifth grade.
