The scholastic results are outstanding, but that is only one part that I love about Sagamore Hills Elementary. As a parent to a PRE-K student, I was a bit worried how he would like it and feel in this new environment, but he loves it. As a parent I always feel welcome and there is a great positive spirit going in the school that you cannot really put your finger on. It is just a very positive atmosphere where it feels like students and staff really enjoys the school.
This school may have the latest and greatest educational programs but that doesn't mean anything when the kids think an African American student is dirty because their skin is Brown. How smart is that? And what are the Parents teaching their kids.
We are starting our 6th year at Sagamore and love it. The sense of community that my children feel about the school is the best part. This year Sagamore was selected to be a STEM school (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math). This means teachers will receive additional training and the school will get more technology, Lego labs, etc. This is in addition to the state of the art Mac lab and iPads that are already there. Sagamore also has fantastic art and music programs. The teachers and administration also welcome parent involvement and there are many opportunities to get to know other families.
The diversity pie is a LIE!!!! And mentally the students and staff doesn't no how to handle certain situations dealing with different cultures and people feelings .The 5months we were there was the worst experience we ever had. O I almost forgot they will question your child without notifying you . If your not welcome there they will use their authority to force you out. I'M NOT JOKING IT HAPPENED TO ME!
We have 3 children currently at Sagamore Hills (since Kindergarten), and find the neighborhood school a wonderful environment. The size is just right for kids to try everything it offers and actively participate. Teachers and administrators know the children and help get them get what they need to be successful. They should be well prepared for middle school and the real world! Another great thing about the size is that the kids and parents don't get lost or feel like a number. Everything they do counts and gets noticed.
We have been at Sagamore for 4 years so far with 2 children. We couldnt be more satisfied. The school is very diverse and we love that all cultures are embraced. We have had positive experiences with all our teachers and our children have been well prepared. what I love most is that the teachers and principal welcome parental input, ideas and involvement. Sagamore is a true community school were we all participate in improving the education of our children.
Sagamore is a great neighborhood school! We have 2 children at the school, and they LOVE it! The kids have art and music weekly (our art teacher is outstanding!). We also have so many programs and activities, including fun family events (sock hop, dinner night, spring carnival, talent show) and opportunities for enrichment in math, reading and science! Sagamore also has strong parent involvement. And we love that our children to go to school with other children in our community!
I have had four children go through Sagamore. The teachers have been excellent. It has wonderful families and is a great community of people who all want the best for our children.
Our second of two chidlren is now in fifth grade at Sagamore. Our older child entered middle school fully prepared. At Sagamore, we have had awesome teachers (including great art and music instructors). The school also helps us feel truly connected to the community.
Sagamore is an excellent elementary school. I love the fact that it is small and teachers know the children across grade levels. As an involved parent I like knowing I can volunteer in the classroom & get to know the teachers and administrative staff. There is an intimacy at Sagamore that I think larger elementary schools lack. The community is strong, the kids are great and so are the parents. We have very strong music and art programs. The children have a school wide art snow annually - it's mazing! We have choral, orchestra and band concerts throughout the year, it's quite impressive!
The Great Schools rating by far does not reflect my experience at Sagamore Hills. The teachers that my children have had were excellent. The teachers challenged my children academically but yet supported them through the process. They also fostered my children's social and emotional growth. The leadership staff is superb. The principal and her staff is always willing to hear a quick story in passing or schedule a lengthy discussion. They are very supportive of the students, parents, and faculty. I could not be more happy with my decision to send my children to Sagamore!
Sagamore Hills Elementary is a wonderful school! I've sent all three of my kids there and we have had only positive experiences. My kids have received a great education. The teachers are fabulous and there is strong parental involvement.
We love having an elementary school that is in a neighborhood and has the neighborhood support.
I moved to this area for the school and I have been very impressed. This is my first year and my son is in 1st grade. The teaching is excellent; he is making great progress. The parental involvement is fantastic. Many parents volunteer for all sorts of activities and it just has a community feel. I love the diversity of the school population. I am very happy with the direction of this school.
This was my son's first year attending Sagamore. He really excelled during the 3rd grade. He had an excellent year and is really looking forward to the 4th grade. The school's PTA and parents are actively involved in the advancement of the children's overall growth and development.
This is a fantastic school - close community, great administrators, accommodating for disabled students.
My son, now in 4th grade, has been at Sagamore Hills since Kindergarten. Sagamore Hills has extremely dedicated teachers, outstanding extracurricular programs, a stimulating and supportive academic environment that encourages academic achievement. Students represent not only diverse racial and ethnic backrounds, but also different socioeconomic levels all which are embraced.
Sagamore Hills has exceeded my expectations for what i expected my son to learn in Kindergarten. I'm pleasantly surprised to see him academically and socially grow so fast in only a few months.
The teachers at Sagamore are thoughtful, creative, and prepared. The parents are involved and supportive. The administration aims to foster a positive, safe, and successful learning environment for all students. Together we form a comprehensive team working in the best interest of the children under our watch.
Incredible school, just the right size and very diverse with students who thrive and amazing programs.
