SAIL has a great, caring, involved and talented staff. The school's philosophy is respect individuals and it shows in the warm atmosphere. The drama department has put on excellent productions. Academic staff encourage the best performance from their students. If I could go to high school again, I'd go to SAIL
SAIL provides a holistic educational process that fosters community/civic mindedness, and global community thinking. Allows for individual creativity, and fosters an ecological approach to all aspects of life.
My son was miserable in the school system here until he transfered to SAIL. He found the atmosphere and the staff supportive, encouraging and made the students feel like they were a family. He and many other students as SAIL blossomed with the respect and freedom that was standard treatment.
School has great facilities but is limited in its offerings. Diverse students which is both good and bad. Hard to know how to evaluate a school that is known for its best and worst. Not much of a middle ground.
