These prestigious awards were bestowed upon Stevenson in 1987, 1991, 1998, 2002, and 2019.

Over the years, both Stevenson High School and its faculty have received various honors, including:

  • In 2010, Stevenson was among five schools nationwide to receive the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts National Schools of Distinction in Arts Education Award.
  • Since 1983, five faculty members at Stevenson, three of whom served at SHS, have been recipients of the Presidential Award for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching. The most recent award received this distinction in 2015.
  • Four faculty members have been finalists for the Illinois Teacher of the Year award. Additionally, Stevenson boasted the Illinois Biology Teacher of the Year in 2015 and the Illinois History Teacher of the Year in 2014.
  • In 1998, SHS was chosen by the U.S. Department of Education for the New American Schools Award.
  • Stevenson has been prominently featured in various publications, including "Strengthening the Heartbeat: Leading and Learning Together in Schools" (Josey-Bass Publishing, 2004) and "From the Inside Out: Learning From the Positive Deviance in Your Organization" (National Staff Development Council, 2003). Former District 125 Superintendent Dr. Richard DuFour and his Solution Tree organization have authored several books in which Stevenson's programs are highlighted.
  • A national report in 2005 recognized Stevenson as one of 24 high schools in the U.S. serving as an exemplary model for integrating excellence and ethics into its educational programs.

Among approximately 15,000 school boards nationwide, Stevenson's Board of Education was one of only three to receive this distinction. The recognition was a result of the board's dedication to student success by shifting from a sorting and selecting approach to providing extensive support and time for both students and staff.
