As a parent of a 7th, 8th, and 11th grader I love the school it has been a perfect fit for all of them and they are all so different in every way possible! I can say that the 7th grade teachers are awesome! I am speaking for Ms. Saletore and Mr. Frazer as I have seen a huge improvement! Both teachers are CGU graduates and really care for the students and make them feel safe and welcomed! The high school is awesome there is a couple of delays from staff with notices but the education children are given and the care that staff and teachers give make up for it! The reason why I did not rate this school a 5 is because of the leadership. At the middle school there is no designated person for discipline which is not OK!!! My students have came home and said many times they sit and waste time in the office and that the principal laughs and will send them back to class which makes them confused on why they were kicked out? BASICALLY THEY CAN GET AWAY WITH ANYTHING unless its really serious! But being disrespectful, not following dress code or basic student norms is OK!

I am a student at School of Arts and Enterprise. This is my first year and at first I thought I wouldn't like it, but now I love it! The staff around here are so loving and nice. I'm glad I gave it a try because it sure is giving me a bright future. I love the classes, and the programs that they have

i was told by a parent whose daughter recently transfered from this school to a local public highschool to pursue cheer how much SAe offers. not pnly did she find out she is ahead in credits, but the teachers for her honors courses have said she is far ahead of everyhone else. so sae is ahead of the game!

This is a review of the brand new School of Arts 6-8 Middle School in the Pomona Arts Colony. Finally a school in Pomona where we can send our kids with pride (after previously going to a Claremont elementary school). The sixth grades teachers are awesome - both of them are recent Claremont Graduate University graduates - and full of energy, commitment and fresh ideas! The kids do dance and yoga for physical fitness, fun electives like eco crafts and useful courses like microsoft office, all amidst a project based learning environment. The kids who are lucky enough to find out about this place will be exposed to the arts (including digital), diversity and the real world as a result of attending here! The staff is very responsive and handles what few problems have cropped up swiftly so that the overall good vibe of the school is maintained. Next year the school will move to a new building (still in the heart of the Arts Colony) and hopefully add Spanish language and musical instruments/ band (which is the ONLY thing lacking this year, especially for an arts school). Love this school!

Many people who go to The School of Arts can say that they definitely don't enjoy it. Many students who are not artists come to the SAE as a second option so they don't have to attend continuation school. Most of the students aren't artists and only come here because they got expelled from their old school, or because they have friends who go there. This makes it hard for the very few students who actually want to learn about art. The SAE is trying to cram as many students as they can into the school. Some classes don't have enough chairs. Students constantly skip classes and the school doesn't even catch it. I can't tell you how many drug issues this school has as well.

This school is great... if you want to meet some great people. Want a good education? Choose a different school. Upon entering you will be greeted with a smile, yes. The staff is extremely nice and considerate. Once you send your child off into class, their chances of learning will dwindle. I was a student for three years and I was in no way challenged academically. I haven't done homework literally the entire time I was there nor I was I informed of any benchmark tests. The test prep for star tests is pathetic. I feel extremely ill-equipt for college and the challenges ahead of me. The arts section of the school is HIGHLY underfunded. The theatre department had little to no money to spend on their performences, percussion literally uses trashcans as their drums. Sure it may be intentional, but was it really necessary to spend money on a middle school? They should have perfected the campuses they already have rather than attempting to cram MORE kids in the school only to recieve more money from the state.

My school is amazing the amount of opportunities it has to offer is endless. The teacher's classroom management, content knowledge, and differentiated teaching were outstanding. They had the ability to connect and interact well with the students as and I felt like it kept us engaged throughout every lesson. The teachers taught me to be motivated and determined to achieve any goal. There is no doubt that I will continue to be a life long creative learner because that is what The SAE has taught me to be.

From the moment you step in you are welcomed by smiles the staff is articulate, intelligent, respectful, modest, and conscientious. They are well liked by the students, admin, and faculty. The SAE is motivated and determined school who will drive the students to achieve the goal of becoming life long learners who are driven by the pursuit of knowledge. There is no doubt that I recommend The SAE as a parent. The staff is extremely welcoming and will go out of their way to meet the students and parents satisfaction.

The school of arts is honestly, the best school in Pomona. The Teachers are amazing and friendly, they interact with their students and make the students feel comfortable. The staff is amazing as well! they will help you with whatever you need! if you need anything you can ask any one and they will help you! The SAE has an amazing staff! Ms. Irma, Ms. porsha, Ms. Melissa, Ms. Trish, and Marco! The counselor Ms. Canales is amazing! she helps you with everything you need, especially with college stuff. She will hunt you down and make you apply to colleges and scholarships. The counselor even takes her free time to help you. This school really cares about your education and their students. Everyone at the school is amazing and friendly. I just graduated and miss this school a lot! i never want to leave! The SAE is more than a school, it's a family. :)

I am currently a graduate of the SAE. I attended this school since my freshmen year back in 2009. I enjoyed my 4 years in this school. The teachers interact well with the students. There are not many students in each class so that helps students focus better. The teachers are nice and funny. They make the lessons engaging and not boring. There isn't many students so we have no problems with cliques and bullying. Everybody gets along with everybody. The SAE is like a family. This school is AMAZING! I love it and I will always be thankful for the opportunities the school has given me.

this school is absolutely a JOKE...i went here and it did nothing as far is my education, sure the teachers were nice but is that gonna help me get to college? no! everybody does what they want, no structure at all.

Posted April 10, 2013

this school is a good fit for alot of students. the problem is the safety, the area is horrible and the security at the school is pretty much non existant. They also need to really provide a standard for the school. it appears that now they let anyone in. maybe it's about numbers, or even money. i would not recommend it for the serious college bond student.

To Prospective music students : I attended The SAE and I was amazed by the classes that they offered and the opportunities they give you. As a person who's passion is music, I was really excited. But as the months went by I began to notice how bad the music department truly is. The music teachers at the time I attended couldn't control our class. They lacked the ability to discipline kids and if you truly loved playing music this will bug you a lot. The art and dance department on the other hand are very good, the teachers and most of the kids take it seriously and have a lot of fun doing what they love. Some teachers I had were supportive and were willing to help as much as possible. The office is the place you will hate the most. The receptionist are very rude and unprofessional and they will leave you waiting and with the biggest headache of your life. I say this because its really important, they are INCREDIBLY unorganized. I could go on and on with examples. I gave this school a three star rating because I met a few people who changed my life and they taught me more in music than the school ever could, if not for them i would have regret attending the SAE.

Two of my sons attended this school, the staff and teachers are wonderful and extremely supportive. I can say that one of the best things about this school is how much they focus on balancing the arts and education. It is a requirement to apply to several colleges and be accepted to at least one of them in order for them to graduate. Their graduation rate is one of the highest I have ever heard of and that to me shows that they do care about your children's education!

I have always enjoyed student artwork and performances since I was a kid. I always wanted to be involved but due to income it was never a possibility. When I go married and decided to begin my own family I promised myself to always be in my children's education and to get them as involved as possible in school activities! With the a school like the SAE that wasn't very much needed. This school is amazing from education to performaces not once has it let me down. GREAT STAFF, TEACHERS, ADMIN, EVERYTHING! At no cost!

This school is amazing. I went to the SAE from my freshman year to my senior year and I can not complain! The teachers are very supportive and will go out of their way to help you out. The administration is friendly and caring and the environment is amazing. The school has absolutely no bullying, which is great! I suggest this school to anyone and everyone!

I love the SAE!!! The art program cannot be squashed, even during this trying economic time. Teachers pull the extra weight and go the extra mile to make sure that finances never jeopardise a students learning experience. The teachers and students really bring this school to life. The involvement and collaboration is truly special. Special recognition to Mr. Tree, Ms Swanlund, Mr. Vaudrey, Mrs. Roberts, and Mr. Butler. The SAE is much more than a school, it's a tight knit community.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California High School Exit Exam (CAHSEE) to test high school students' skills in English language arts and mathematics. The results for grade 10 students taking the test for the first time are displayed on GreatSchools profiles. The CAHSEE is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined by the state of California. Students must pass all parts of the CAHSEE in order to graduate from high school. If they do not pass it the first time, students have multiple opportunities to retake the test. The goal is for all students to pass both sections of the test.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California High School Exit Exam (CAHSEE) to test high school students' skills in English language arts and mathematics. The results for grade 10 students taking the test for the first time are displayed on GreatSchools profiles. The CAHSEE is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined by the state of California. Students must pass all parts of the CAHSEE in order to graduate from high school. If they do not pass it the first time, students have multiple opportunities to retake the test. The goal is for all students to pass both sections of the test.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.
