Sawgrass Adventist School has a team of administrators, teachers, staff, and volunteers that work together for the betterment of the student intellectually, physically, and spiritually. The teachers are dedicated to the learning needs of the students and work with their parents. Although it is a small school, it is rich in educational quality. The teachers care for the students, and the students care for their teachers and schoolmates. It is a very close-knit community where attention and affection abound.

The Principal is doing an very good job. The teachers and other staff are very committed to provide the student an attractive learning environment. Moreover, students have the opportunity to develop an authentic relationship with God.

Sawgrass Adventist School is dedicated to assisting all students recognize their gifts and talents and nuturing them towards reaching their full potential by designing an individualized plan for academic success. Each student works on their own unique ability level, under the guidance of our qualified, caring staff, in order to maximize their learning experience. Concern for our students extends beyond the classroom where teachers and staff members can be found ministering to the everyday needs of our families, leading Bible studies and visiting ill and hospitalized student family members.

This is a GREAT school. My kids attended when they were younger and I still volunteer from time to time. The school has been blessed over the past 5 years with enrollment increase; outstanding teacher commitment; consistent improvements; an after school activities program offering gymnanstics, crafts, team sports, musical instrument lessons, journalism, Drama and study hall with homework help. I'm always touched to see how much the Principal and staff care about the students and parents, and how the children love them. I don't think any one realizes how much the staff does. This is God's school!

very family oriented school that excels in education and teaching children healthy eating and a relationship with Christ. Lots of extra curicular activities including piano, guitar, drama, soccer, golf, gymnastics, and choir! what more can you ask for. My daughter loves her class and teachers and I will not consider another school!

I have my daughter in Sawgrass Adventist School sice 2007, and she loves her school. It isw a safety and healthy environment. They are offering now in 2009 a great extracurricular program. The Christian environment and principles taught there are priceless for character building.

I think that the school is a good place if you want a seventh day adventist education for your child, but the building itself needs some work.

Mrs. Simmons, the vice principal, loves the children, strives for a high quality of learning, knows how to instruct the students very well, and the students respect her. In addition, the parents love her as a person and for her dedication to the school. Here is a tip on the current principal; watch out for her. Overall, the school is a Seventh Day Adventist small school. It is known best when it comes to winning medals for science projects in competitions against other schools. This is what really impresses me. It is a small great school. Even though it is not a science school, they should be because this is one of their strong points as a school.

I now have three toddlers, 4-8 years old, attending the Sawgrass Adventist School and so far my wife and I are satisfied. A small Christian school, pre-K to 8th grade with less than 100 students. I'm not sure of the highest level of teacher qualification but I know teachers are encouraged to continually upgrade their education and skills. There is a new principal this year, a former New Yorker who impresses me so far. She has good plans for the school. I hope most, if not all, can come to fruition. The school is private, of Seventh-day Adventist affiliation. The new principal has brought in a heightened sense of discipline among the students with greater attention to uniform compliance and overall student behavior. That's good.

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.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
