Welcome to Steadley Elementary School’s website! We’re glad you dropped by.

There is a lot one could share right here to tell you about our wonderful school. Suffice it to say, however, that this is one very special place.

Steadley has the most fantastic students, the best parents and extended family members who deeply care about their children’s education and who are involved in this all-important process, and a staff nonpareil, composed of professionals who genuinely love our students and who passionately pursue the utmost for them.

We want our students to Dream big, to Believe in themselves and in our school as a team and as a family, and we know that this passionate approach toward excellence has resulted--and will continue to result--in being able to

Achieve tremendous results.  

Dream…believe…achieve: precisely how we are

“taking care of business” at Steadley.
