Welcome to Stewart Elementary!  Stewart is one of four elementary schools in the Yankton School District.  Located two blocks off of US Highway 81, Stewart was built in 1966 and has had many additions over the years.  The school is located near The Huether Family Aquatic Park, Fantle Memorial Park, and Yankton Middle School.

Stewart Elementary provides services to children kindergarten through fifth grade, having two sections per grade.  The school currently enrolls around 300 students.  In addition to these services, Stewart houses the early childhood special education program for the Yankton School District in addition to other special education programs.

Many families enjoy our school because of the moderate class size, programs available district-wide, parent support and involvement, and the high quality of education by our highly qualified teaching staff.  Stewart Elementary is committed to providing a safe, enjoyable learning environment for all students.  Students are held to the highest standards as we know each and everyone can learn through a variety of different learning experiences.

Stewart Elementary has a lot of support from the community and parents.  We have a strong Parent Teacher Association (PTA) that helps sponsor and support a wide range of events and activities at our school.  Stewart Elementary also houses the Boys and Girls Club Academy before and after school.

Communication is the key to a successful educational experience for all students at Stewart Elementary to strive for excellence.

Boys Town Educational Model

All Yankton schools use the Boys Town Educational Models as a tool to build positive classroom environments, foster strong teacher-student relationships, and teach social skills necessary for life at school and out in the community.

Responsive Classroom

As students enter our building we strive for a sense of belonging and community for each and every student.  Stewart Elementary uses Responsive Classroom and staff have been trained in working with students' emotional and social well-being.  Students feel a sense of community through morning meetings and closing meetings on a daily basis in their classrooms.
