E.C. Stevens School History

The E. C. Stevens School, named in 1961 to honor a local industrialist and school board member, is located in the southeast section of Wallingford. The children in Grades Preschool-Grade 2 who attend E.C. Stevens live in the area bound by South Elm Street, East Center Street, South Airline Road, and Harrison Road. Many of these students are within walking distance of school.

The brick, one-story building is on spacious grounds, adjoining the Dag Hammarskjold Middle School and Lyman Hall High School campuses. It features two enclosed courtyard atriums that can be viewed from hallways and classrooms. Technology including iPads, Chromebooks, Smart Boards, Touch Its, and Smart TVs are available for students to use. Computer lessons are taught as a regular part of the special area class schedule.
