We've moved to Sagemont from other private school and we could not be happier! They have a safe environment, a great curriculum and the staff and teachers are always available, helpful and kind. My kids LOVE the school and they are motivated to learn and be better day after day. As parents, we feel we have made a great choice for our kids' education.

Our son has been at Sagemont since the 2nd grade and is currently in the middle school. He has truly benefitted from the small class sizes, the individualized attention, the outstanding instruction year after year, the ongoing enrichment programs during and after school and the technological training for the world we live in. Not only have we watched him grow and develop into an independent learner, but have witnessed how he has thrived in a small school setting. Our baby of the family is finishing her last year of elementary school and has been at Sagemont since the Kindergarten. She recently toured the middle school as an early orientation as to what awaits her in the fall and all she could say during our drive home was how excited she was to begin something new and how sad she was to leave her elementary school that has been a part of her life for the last 6 years.

My daughter has been attending Sagemont since Preschool. She is now a 5th grader and all I can say is THANK YOU to all the teachers and staff, who lovingly have lead her all these years. The school have been my second home as well, as a parent volunteer I get to be actively participating in school events. I'm blessed that my kids have had this opportunity to be in such awesome school. My older now is in the Upper School Campus and I'm also very happy with the environment and the teachers.

My child was at this school for a year. Her teacher was excellent but I can't say the same for most of the staff. The principal and vice principal are unfriendly, rude and dismissive except when it's time to register for the approaching school year. The front office staff was too busy to assist. The parents are cliquish and do not attempt to speak to you unless you speak Spanish. The majority of students are Latin and your child will be left out unless your family is as well. From my experience , they are intolerant of others. That type of attitude was also portrayed by some of the teachers of the school. I am glad I've moved my child from this hostile environment; mind you, her new principal and teachers are of Latin origin but they are much more endearing and approachable. We are happy and settled here.

My Daughter Katherine has gone to Sagemont since 1st grade and attended CAMP Sagemont all throughout gradeschool.. during this past summer the school gave her the opportunity to WORK at Camp Sagemont.. She had so much fun. I really love this school, she has grown up to be such a wonderful young lady. I owe everything to the staff.... She continues to excel academically and emotionally and i owe it all to this wonderful school. They are not helping her apply to NYU and other great colleges..

Many wonderful veteran teachers have left this school year, leaving the school to scramble with replacements. As a returning family I am disappointed to find my child's homeroom teacher is mediocre and comes from a school with poor and unproven academic outcomes. What is the point of paying for this if any old teacher will do to teach? My child's class size is over the state mandate, which tosses out their proud claims of small ones out the window. Many parents warned me, that they were seeking out alternate private schools, stating that their older siblings curriculum was entirely too slow, 'a waste of year.' I really can't help but think principal turnover has had something to do with all of this. Although I am continually grateful for the extra curricular activities offered & the lack of FCAT, the cost (I fear) will become increasingly difficult to justify given the quality of teaching.

The previous review is based on summer school experience. As I share this parent's thoughts and concerns, I am 100% sure that Sagemont team has learned from this mistake and will make the necessary moves so that it will not happen again. Sagemont is the best school in Weston. I have been a college a professor for 12 years in North East and I have my standards. it has been very difficult to find the right school for our son in Miami area. After the first year in Pre-K, I realized that Sagemont team is there for us to help our son grow both academically and socially. There will be errors just like in any other organization but as you go through the standards they are the best. My son did have a speech issue and immediately his pre-k teacher and the principal arranged a conference with us and a speech therapist was on board the next week. It is so precious to see the President of the School and the Principal of the school every single morning welcoming the kids and the parents. This by itself shows how open Sagemont's upper management is and it is much appreciated by all parents. I can write more but there is not enough space.

As of today I've dealt with Sagemont for less then two weeks and thus far they have managed to loose my child, send him home soaking wet, and loose a bag filled with his belonging. I don't recommend this school to anyone. I've made plenty of research and found out that paying for school does not necessarily mean a better and safer educations.

Our children are flourishing, and they love school! There are many reasons for this: Sagemont s committed teachers and staff, remarkable curriculum, ongoing assessment, added focus on writing and vocabulary (love this!!), reinforcement of organizational skills, to name just a few. And we love how Sagemont teaches and models responsibility, interdependence, and respect. Our kids really enjoy the sports and outstanding drama program.

My son has been attending Sagemont since he was 3 years old in PK now he s 9 years old in 3rd grade. Sagemont has been a great school for my son. I love that my son is always eager to learn and is always challenged. He is reading at 5th grade level which is amazing. Sagemont has a great curriculum, great teachers and staff. We plan to continue with Sagemont until 12th grade or maybe until college my son says that maybe by the time he graduates high school maybe Sagemont has its own college and that he would attend Sagemont College. We are very happy to be part of The Sagemont School!

I am a big fan of Sagemont! The school, size, nurturing environment, caring teachers and staff make this school a great place to be. I chose S over other prep schools because of the Safety, Diversity, Small school atmosphere and phenomenal curriculum. From PS on, S offers art, music, science, Spanish and swimming as part of their curriculum. I have my 2 children enrolled & am super happy. It is our 3rd year & my older child is reading almost 3 grades above his level. His math is excellent. The teachers here encourage and challenge the students to be the best that they can be! There is also the swim academy on sight with a great coach, coach Pam. I have to say though, my favorite teacher is Ms Solomon. She works very hard with each and every child encouraging them to reach their full potential. She is a true asset to the school and a great gift to her students. Both my kids will continue on to the Upper School where I am confident that they will receive the best preparation, education and guidance.

We have been part of the Sagemont School family for the past nine years and we are so pleased. There is a wonderful sense of community at Sagemont and the parents are encouraged to volunteer. The class sizes are small and the differentiated teaching is fantastic. Our children are getting a solid acamedic foundation while being able to take part in a variety of sports, clubs and arts programs to make them very well rounded. Give Sagemont a try and you won't be disappointed.

My family has been attending this school for 12 years, and I have had nothing but positive experiences. My kids have flourished under the guidance of these hands-on teachers, who treated each of my children as if they were their own. I am so happy to have my kids be a part of the Sagemont family.

our family has been attending this school for 9 years. excellent college prep program mixed with great extra curricular activities and clubs, sports, drama.Whenmy kids were little, I visited 8 schools in the area. Chose this one, no other school was even a close 2nd. Teachers and staff really care about the kids.You can walk into the school while in session, at any time and find kids and teachers laughing and having a great time. Compare that with excellent test grades, and you have the makings of a perfect environment for your kids.

My daughter has been attending The Sagemont School since Pre-K. She has always been treated as an individual student, not just part of the class. I believe she was far advanced in every grade level. This is proven to be true by the tests she is taken. She is always in a warm, nurturing environment that adds to her educational experience. She goes to school with a big smile on her face, even when she has a test. The communication from her teachers and administration regarding the school and specifically my daughter is truly great. I am thrilled she is at The Sagemont School.

As a parent, finding an educational environment that offers your child high academic challenge and standard in a setting that is technology-minded and family-friendly is a lofty and difficult goal to achieve. Our family has found and enjoyed that magical mix at the Sagemont School. The administration and staff have partnered with us for many years in the education and development of our children. They understand the importance of preparing the student to succeed in a highly competitive and complex world while not losing sight of the child: The team educates the whole child. Additionally, a smaller school size affords students and teachers to know each other well before they actually work together. We feel that Sagemont has been instrumental in helping us prepare our children to meet the world as prepared and contributing young adults.

My daughter has gone to The Sagemont School for the past several years. I am so proud of her progress and the things she has accomplished. She has learned great organizational skills, test taking skills, writing, geography, science concepts and Spanish. I think the school does a great job with teaching kids to be responsible citizens and involved students. My daughter participates in chorus, sports and soon she will try drama. It looks like it will be a very nice year.

Confused by contradictory reviews about this school? Truth is that the mostly outstanding teachers are unfortunately mixed with a handful of mediocre ones with no good feelings for the kids of private school paying parents. This is also true for part of the leadership team and even front office staff. I hope this explains the inconsistent experiences described in multiple reviews. The price is right for all they offer. The headmaster/owner seems very nice, but should grow some courage and get rid of his bad apples once and for all, before they annoy the real teachers and ruin his beautiful school beyond repair. Curriculum is strong but could use some brush up in science and arts. The always caring band teacher is a great asset with no recognition. She deserves more resources and kudos. This could be a great experience, just make sure to ask lots of questions before deciding.

Great kids Families that value education and are ready to participate and pay top dollar for it Some good teachers and some that should not be working w children Principal is unproffesional and creates cold climate. Does not seem to care about the well being and education of all the students. Owner seems very nice but not present enough to know what goes on w current administration Curriculum is good kids are challanged Facility could be a bit better for the price and so could the extracurricular and sports activities The potential to be a gem is high but needs improvement in leadership

Unfortunately the economy and cutting back has taken a toll on this school. There are a number of issues: tenure of staff, breadth of program; increasing class sized; attention to curriculum and detail. They put on a good show - but lack any real depth. And, be particularly cautious if you parent a child with special needs or a boy - not the best choice for the price.

This is our first year at Sagemont Lower School. The curriculum is outstanding - not geared to FCAT, but the school uses the Stanford test to gauge progress. My daughter's teachers are caring and highly competent. The lead teacher makes an effort to partner with parents; she responds quickly by phone and e-mail. Fantastic science, art, music, media center and PE teachers enhance the experience of the students. There are many opportunities for parent involvement besides fundraising. This school has a strong community feel with many nice, down-to-earth families. The kids are mostly very nice, and the school deals with occasional teasing and bullying quickly and constructively. It also recognizes students for upholding school values like peacemaking. After care is a blast - karate, arts & crafts, drama and dance. My daughter doesn't want to come home. This is truly a great school!

Seriously? Move to a community in a state that values education (including the arts) and send your kids to a good public school. This private school is ineptly managed at best.

Academic programs at Sagemont are very good - starting in 9th grade, students are able to start taking a variety of AP classes. My son has attened Sagemont all 4 years of High School, he was able to complete 8 AP courses and many Honors classes as well. This is something that would not have been possible in most Public schools. Sagemont also has a Virtual High School(in partnership with the University of Miami)that allows many other classes to be taken beyond those offered in the traditional classroom setting. These classes are very good and teach students to learn in an independent manner. There are many sport and music and club activities; but the schools smaller size can be a limit to more 'socially' hungry students.The school has excellent Soccer, and Tennis and is developing a stronger Basketball program with the addition of a new indoor sports complex. Parents are very involved.

Both of our children attend Sagemont. Our intention is to keep them at Sagemont until they graduate high school. We can't imagine a better place for our children to grow and develop. Close knit, family oriented school. High level of parental involvment. Fantastic teachers, however teacher turnover is great. Accessible administration. Teachers are very nurturing. Our children have made many friends and so have we. Great sense of community.

Wonderful family orientated small private school Pre-K through 12th grade. Easy access to Administration and teachers. Very involved parents and PTO. Everyone is very friendly.
