With routes and schedules more stabilized, we are excited to announce that students and families will be able to access live bus tracking via the First View app beginning on Monday.

The First View app also provides predictive stop and arrival times and push notifications. For download and account registration instructions for the First View app, click here.

Stevenson’s Own Silver Medalist: Greycen Ren

While the Summer Olympics were happening in Tokyo this summer, senior Greycen Ren picked up his own silver medal in international competition in the 2021 International Biology Olympiad Challenge II, in which participants showcase their abilities in biology.

The event, originally scheduled to be held in Lisbon, Portugal, was conducted virtually instead due to COVID-19. Four students, including Ren, a leader of Stevenson’s Biology Olympiad club, represented the United States after they won the 2021 USA Biolympiad (USABO) National Finals, which were also held virtually by the Center for Excellence in Education (CEE). Nearly 9,000 students from 464 schools, 42 states, and eight international schools registered in that nationwide high school competition.

“These students honored our country at the IBO competition,” said Joann DiGennaro, president of CEE. “They are exceptional scholars headed for outstanding careers in science.”
