Stephenson High School, located in historic Stone Mountain, opened in 1996. The campus consists of a beautiful five-acre facility, located on forty acres and is one of the largest of DeKalb County School District’s twenty-seven high schools. With a five-member administrative team, and a dedicated faculty of over 100 professional educators, the bar continues to be raised to ensure a tradition of excellence for the students and alumni of Stephenson High school. Realizing that “It Takes a Village” to educate and support our students, our parents and business partners are an integral and invaluable resource, and their presence permeates the halls as they provide service and support for academic and extracurricular activities and events.
The Stephenson High School mission is to educate and prepare students to be productive members of their ever-changing world.
"If you can dream it, you can do it."
SHS has a 500-seat theatre that is equipped with two full-size dressing rooms, computer-operated lights and backdrops, an orchestra pit with hydraulic lift, and a catwalk. The Atlanta Theatre Organ Society donated and installed a PAGE organ with full piping. Stephenson is one of three schools in the country to house such an organ, and will continue to use it for student musicals and concerts.
