It's my son's 3rd year at SAC prep and I've been really impressed. He came from Capital Christian School and I was worried about the quality of education coming from a private school with less diversity and higher socioeconomic standard. I was pleasantly surprised. It's in a nice location, the teachers seem genuinely passionate, admin seems competent. The diversity is my greatest plus. There are all races and cultures. Minorities make the biggest percentage of the school. Some of the reviews here criticizing the culture are probably non-minority parents who are not open-minded to other cultures. Some of the kids are from low socioeconomic backgrounds, but some are not. It seems to me that all parents regardless of what their backgrounds are, are the type of people who are looking for a high quality education for their kids. I really like this school!
Great Principal leadership...dedicated awesome teachers....This school doe's a great job educating young people and getting them ready for high school.
I have a 5 year old kindergartener named Mary Ellen Crump. She is learning so much at such a fast pace thanks to her teacher Ms. Begert. Sol Aureus provides a great environment for children to learn and grow.
My daughter has been going here since kindergarten and I as a parent have seen so much growth in her! I am so happy that we decided to go with SAC prep for her elementary and jr high years. I love that this school pays so much attention to details and educational strengths and weaknesses with their students. i tell all my friends about this school even though their is a wait list i still tell them to sign up.
My school Is amazing!! WOULD NOT TRADE FOR THE WORLD! Thanks to her teacher she is reading and writing at her grade level and understanding things better and all she wants to do is read.
The parent teacher connection is amazing, I can call/text my teacher and ask her anything and discuss everything under the sun with out feeling like im bothering her thats a good feeling. The principles are great also they are just as approachable. very friendly. parents here give 110% all the time i love this school and so does my child
Sol Aureus is an excellent school. Their teaching techniques as well as their structure captured my sons' attention from the first day of school. When my son attended public school (SCUSD), he was much further behind academically and they did not give him the drive to succeed academically as Sol Aureus has done. He has gone from a C/D student in public school to an A+ and B student in all of his courses at Sol Aureus. The teachers and staff at Sol Aureus really care about our childrens education and success. Sol Aureus has a open door policy and I feel EXTREMELY comfortable and confident when I talk or meet with teachers and staff. Sol Aureus has really helped my son achieve academically as well as socially. Thank you Sol Aureus Prepatory School.
This school is good for students who need discipline and struggle in a regular school atmosphere. The mission of the school is to help at-risk kids. If your child excels and you want the best school for him or her, then this is not the school for them. If your child struggles behaviorally then this school is perfect. The school, however, focuses solely on test scores. The teachers will help your child score higher if they previously struggled. There isn't any extra enrichment because teachers are only focused on teaching the STAR test and not much else. The school culture is extremely lacking.
SAC Prep is a wonderful school that prepares its students for high school and beyond. I have been involved with this school for about 10 years with two children graduating fromthere and going on to top high schools. Excellent curriculum!
Sac Prep is a great school for any student. All the staff there are very nice and respectful. My son learned alot from attending this school. I would highly recommend this school to any parents who want their kids to learn.
Sac Prep is a great school. I like the fact that the staff takes time to get to know everyone, and talk to you. My daughter has never felt better about going to school. If they could get more funding for more programs and supplies for library, a band class, sports..
Sol Aureus College Prep...My son has been attending this school for 2 years and his level of knowledge supersedes what I had hoped he would have gotten attending Sol Aureus College Prep. The teachers and staff are wonderful with the children. The environment is very comforting and the location is beautiful.
Can you say, 864 APIs, and going to 900? My son is a Kindergartner there. At the end of the year, he is doing two digit addition, reading books to his 4 year old sister at night, and reciting the school's mission statement. KINDERGARTEN!! If you want high benchmarks for academic performance, and small class sizes (25 or less) for your children, you are an idiot if you aren't considering SAC Prep. Go Phoenix!
Last year when it was time for my daughter to go to kindergarten I was worried about her being in a good school. As I looked around I came to realize the school she was aloud to go to was not doing to well, I had a friend who's daughter was at Sol Aureus and she told me about how good of a school it was so I then decided to check it out!!! When I walked in the office new to the whole school the principal(Mr. Hernandez) stood right up and greeted me! Wow can you say AMAZING ALREADY. They gave me what I needed so I then filled it out and turned it in. I just prayed all summer she would be accepted and my wish came true. This school does so good. My daughter who is a 5 year old can read, spell, add double digits, subtract, do math, read story and answer questions also she can do fractions!!!!!!!!!! They promised me she would be able to read before the end of kindergarten and were they right. This school requires a lot of the parents and children but they are so good at teaching and other things that it is not to hard. GREAT STAFF AND TEACHERS!
I love this school . They have same of the best teachers and they love there students.. my child has been. At this. School. For 3 years now and she loves it..keep up the good work guys :)
My daughter loves attending sacprep. I appreciate their commitment to maintaining a small class size so teachers can effectively manage the classroom. Her grades have improved considerably since attending. I also like the parent meetings and the weekly email blasts that help to keep parents informed.
This school is a positive learning environment that includes art and physical education into the curriculum. The teachers are very professional and communicate the positive and negative behaviors of the students. Communication between the teachers and parents was very strong. The homework logs were current and were included with the homework. The students were responsible to have their homework logs signed daily. The teachers along with the administration had high expectations of their students and expected them to arrive at school prepared to learn. This is a great school and I am glad my children attend this school. The uniforms are also a plus.
Sol Aureus College Preparatory School is a excellent school for my children. I seen improvements on my children for the past 2 yrs. I'm very happy that my kids are attending Sol Aureus College Prep. School.
Sol Aureus College Prep - We are very impressed with the leadership and the teachers. Their efforts are amazing and the academic progress of our kids has been very good. Your model is working. It has been a great improvement over our recent public school experience. The tough thing for us has been some of the language and attitude the kids bring home from their peers. Character and civility do matter. It is our job as parents to cover those bases and it has been a challenge. We do and will recommend Sol Aureus as a most viable option. They are doing a very good job.
Greenhaven's Hidden Academic Gem. The academic environment of Sac Prep is top notch. Small class sizes, attentive passionate teachers who go the extra mile. This is NOT an easy busywork school; your children will work HARD and will LEARN. Homework everynight even weekends---but they will LEARN. What we have learned this year is impressive compared to other top rated schools in Greehaven which we attended prior. Uniforms are great at neutralizing socio-economic differences. However it is a very socio-economically diverse school and with that comes some less than desireable cultural aspects (language, attitudes, affects) that they can also LEARN. Academically, I give the school a 9 out of 10. School Leadership, I give the school a 9 out of 10 School Culture, I give the school a 3 out of 10 - however, I can see as more families/kids from Greenhaven embrace this school this factor will change. Overall, I have been very happy with the academic aspects of the school. I am struggling with the cultural aspect. Which is more important, comes down to personal choice. There is no doubt Sac Prep will be in the top ten performing academic schools in the district.
