Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree

Each teacher runs her/his classroom in their own unique way, which allows for a very strong school and dedicated teachers.

My child is thriving at SAS. The school is solidly academic, diverse racially and culturally, has great parent involvement, and dedicated community of teachers, admin, and board. There is a philosophy of conscious discipline. The students are super-polite with each-other and with the adults on campus. (Greetings and doorholding and "excuse me" when passing on the stairs is the norm). Upper and lower grades have constructive, positive, mentoring interactions with eachother: the weekly reading buddies pair up 4th graders with Kindergartners. Every student goes on stage and performs regularly, whether as narrator, MC, star, or supporting role. Everybody learns to be a supportive audience member. There is a gardening class. Parents whose kids have transferred in from other, private, schools have experienced SAS academics to be further ahead, and have like the structure and discipline at SAS. I love this school and wish that they were all like this.

Notice that all of the good reviews for this school are very old. Enough said! This school has some serious problems beginning with the principal.

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.

This elementary academics are appallingly low. Especially 5th grade. Students are not held to high behavior standards or work habits.

My child gets real, hands on education. They have a wonderful Real Life Science program, as well as music, art, gardening, and many other cool activities.

Small individualized, hands on learning school that encourages parental involvement in the classroom as well as at home.

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.

The school is fully of caring adults and is a rich learning enviroment.

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.
