My child is thriving at SAS. She has wonderful, involved teachers and they do a great job of keeping parents informed and inviting parental involvement as well. I feel like she's getting the attention and support that she needs, and that she is valued as an individual. From the classroom to the school community to the extended day program, it's all been a positive experience for us.
The School of Arts and Sciences is one of the best schools I have ever been involved with. They were rated as one of the eight top charter schools by the Department of Education. We have been used as a model by several other schools. The students enjoy learning, which is the key to a good school.
School of Arts and Sciences is a unique school where children learn through real life experiences. Instead of reading a chapter in a text book about bugs, these students go outside and touch a bug! They perform every week in a friendly, encouraging environment which gives all the students the confidence to get up, take chances and excel. My oldest child is in high school now, after going to SAS from K-8, and he was so well prepared for the challenges of a large school offering advanced academics. SAS is a gem and we are lucky to have it in Tallahassee.
SAS provides an excellant learning environment for my kids. The teachers truly care about the kids. They use innovative teaching methods to help our kids learn and to keep learning interesting. Since it is a small school - it is like one happy family.
