About Stevens Cooperative School


Stevens Cooperative School, which was founded in 1949, is the only nonsectarian independent elementary school with campuses in Hoboken and Jersey City. Stevens is the oldest parent cooperative school in New Jersey, and an excellent model of progressive education in action. Originally an informal playgroup for children of the faculty at Stevens Institute of Technology, the School has grown into a full progressive nursery, elementary and middle school, with campuses in Hoboken and Jersey City.


Historically, Stevens has been located in Hoboken since its inception. In 2005, the board of trustees approved and opened a parallel campus in the fast growing Newport area of Jersey City. Today we operate four buildings in total with three of them located in Hoboken and one in Newport. Stevens serves over 435 students from 2-years-old through the 8th grade, of which 46% are ethnic minorities. Stevens is fully committed to a culturally diverse faculty and staff body and is eager to consider applications from traditionally underrepresented groups.
