If you want to STAY in this neighborhood, but are still trying to think through the right school option for your kids, plan on attending this important meeting.
While Stewart is the oldest school still operating in Columbus (first opened in 1874), with a rich history and tradition, the building has now been beautifully restored and is ready to be once again filled with excited students ready to learn.
Join us on Wednesday, November 19 to learn more about Stewart…where your kids can walk to school and thrive.

“Honestly it was very tough decision,” Eshelbrenner said of he and his wife, Nicole, moving to Bexley with their two children.
