I think this school does an awesome job in educating the students. Kindergarteners are able to do things that 3rd graders at other schools can't do. The have a great choice of clubs led by teachers. They offer tutoring. Teachers work hard to help the students not only meet their goals but understand the value of meeting them. The teachers find innovative ways of educating the students. They are always striving to do better and better.
I personally believe that the school does a marvelous job at educating the students. As a trained instructor for the U.S. Navy I learned that students reach their capacity in learning at about 50-55 minuets and then need a little break. Also I believe that all students should be treated the same, this includes the staff and teachers. Respect should go both ways. I feel that the extra curricular activities are very good and beneficial to the students and their families.
The Sonoran Science Academy is academically very good, but the extracurricular activities like P.E, Arts, Music are not upto the standard and also the staff kids doesn't have the same rules like others kids. Like they can use microwave to heat their lunch and in the morning they do not have to wait outside till the bell rings. Hope they will correct these things in future.
I am really lucky to go to this school because all aspects of this school are really good. The teachers are good, the environment, education, everything is good about it! 9th grade SSA Student, class of 2012 or 2013, depending.
I am very gratefull to Sonoran Science Academy for their outstanding dedication to their students. The Math program in Middle school is the best in Arizona.
When my child first started attending this school she was excelling academically. Kindergarten and first grade teachers encourage the children to excel and communicate well with parents. After that they expect the children to function as adults. The teachers give so much homework and put a lot of the grade on things that the parent not the child is doing, like how papers are typed. My child is getting burned out and loosing interest in school. When I look at my friends kids that go to public schools they are learning the same information but with out the homework. I think that the teachers are not focusing on the child as a whole. I am hoping my child can finish the school year with out to much more damage being done to her spirit.
Very Academic oriented School and also they have variety of extracurricular activities after school
They have a great Math program. they keep getting the first place awards at MATHCOUNTS for several years at the state level. This school has been serving the best MATH education in all ARIZONA. There is no school can beat them at the math competitions. They are MATH monsters...
Despite small glitches along the way, this school really tries hard and cares about doing the best for every kid. My kids are happy and flourishing in this environment. I feel confident that they will benefit throughout life from attending this school. The extras this school offers are unique and as individual as this school is. The teachers are dedicated and it shows in the success of the students.
We love this school! We had a very bad experience with another charter school so I was apprehensive in sending the kids to another one. We have been pleasantly surprised at SSA. The kids are challenged and love the after school clubs. My older daughter is in volleyball and they won the championship this year! The school has a wonderful atmosphere where the students, parents and staff are polite and respectful.
The Teachers are available for tutoring and this is extremely helpful for my child. Thank you all for you dedication to the students learning experience!
This is our first year at the Sonoran Science Academy and we are delighted with the commitment to excellence this wonderfull learning community has. Our son's teachers are experts in their fields, encourage creative thought, offer extra help after school if needed and are dedicated to student success.
SSA provides students with a well rounded education in the core academics and in the fine arts. The administration is supportive and receptive to new ideas. Our school is a 'family'. We care about each other and especially our students so they are successful in their academics, and extra-curriculars in preparation for their future. We provide a safe learning environment which enables students to grow and excel in a well rounded educational setting, knowing their teachers care. SSA students are brilliant, creative and respectful.
I love Sonoran Science Academy because this school is very successful and the teachers are like the best that you can every get!
Amazing school, values Education, Great Teachers, Great tutoring Programs, and wants whats best for our Children. Would send all my children there.
It is the best school in southern Az. Teachers will go above and beyond to help students learn. Very dedicated and well educated teachers that specialized in the subjects that they teach. Overall, very satisfied parent and happy to have kids in this school
The teachers seem to love what they are doing instead of just doing a job. Kids are here for education not to party etc. so everyone has goals for the future. Good staff, good teachers, good parents, good kids, makes for a happy face.
Exceptional math and science program. High academic expectations. Love this school.
They challenge our son to work harder and learn more than any public school could. He will be better prepared for college and beyond with the skills he develops at Sonoran Science Academy.
