School Notes:

  • Stevens High School is the only public high school in Claremont, New Hampshire. It is located in the center of the city on the corners of Broad and Summer Streets. It was founded in 1868, the result of a $20,000 donation by Paran Stevens, donated to Claremont with the proviso that the city appropriate a like sum. Due to its central location, the school does not have its own athletic fields, and instead has an agreement with the city of Claremont to use the city's facilities at neighboring Monadnock Park, Barnes Park, and occasionally Moody Park.
  • Stevens High School's colors are Red and Black, and its mascot is the Cardinal. The school's recognized fight song is "Glory to Stevens," sung to the melody of "Glory to Dartmouth," the fight song of nearby Dartmouth College. In the early 1990s, the school gained status as the host to one of the earlier Apple Macintosh user groups, primarily attended by high school faculty.
  • Alumni: Stevens High School has one of the oldest active alumni association of any high school in the United States, but is not the oldest.
