John Paul Stevens High School is one of nine public high schools in the Northside Independent School District in San Antonio, Texas, USA, located near SeaWorld San Antonio. It is one of the largest high schools in the San Antonio area with roughly 2,900 students in the 2014-2015 school year. The school's mascot is the Falcon. The school colors are red, silver and black.
Stevens High School was built with funds from the voter approved 2001 Bond Issue. Designed by PBK Architects, it was built by Bartlett Cocke Contractors at a cost of $50 million. The 398,000-square-foot (37,000 m2), state of the art school building has two stories with an abundance of natural light. Currently,[when?] Stevens is capped, and schools that normally feed into Stevens now feed into Earl Warren High School and William Howard Taft High School (areas outside of Loop 1604 off Potranco and Military Roads).
In 1987, Pope John Paul II held mass on the site that later became Stevens High School. The service was part of his visit to San Antonio. A monument exists near the school to commemorate the visit.
The Stevens Falcons compete in the following sports:These sports include:
