Slide What I love about Stepping Stones is that the staff expects so much from the kids and they don’t put any limitations on them. They push the students to go beyond themselves. That’s what I want my son to carry on. He shouldn’t just settle for the mundane: he should continue to excel and go beyond what anyone expects of him. -Sheryl W., Parent of a Stepping Stones Student
