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.
Amazing environment. Great teachers and principal. Parents highly involved. Outstanding school.
Sagemont is the most wonderful school! We have had 2 children attend and our daughter is graduating 5th grade this year. It is the most loving atmosphere but with high academic expectations for the children. Parents and satff are involved and friendly. Send your child to this school with great confidence!
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!
I am very pleased with this school. The curriculum is challenging, the staff and faculty are dedicated and absolutely amazing in how they care for each and every child. You will not be disappointed if this is your choice.
Excellent private school in quiet nice neighborhood. Teachers are excellent and school staff is very helpful.
I like my school oh so very much. The teachers care about your academic progress and understanding.
sagemont offers high quality academics, small class sizes, very good teachers and good leadership by the principal.
Sagemont is an excellent school with great level of academics and the teachers are outstanding.
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. My son has gone there for 8 years. The quality of academics is excellent with regular, honors and AP courses and also an on-line option for high school.
