The best thing that this school offers is the dual enrollment classes which helps students finish their first two years of college while they are still in high school. Otherwise, the school would be no different than any of those schools with the IB program.

Excellent education! I highly recommend this school. If your child meets the requirements to get accepted, it is the best school that a parent can send his/her children to. Honestly, if want the best education in Dade County for your child, send them to an SAS School.

I've had two of my daughters go thru SAS and the experience has been great. Excellent leadership, great teachers and motivated students make a perfect atmosphere for higher learning.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

Oops! We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Public and charter school test scores for most states come from the state Department of Education. The most common reasons we might not have this data are either that not enough students took the test or that the school was recently opened, and its scores have not yet been reported.
