I have not had this experience so I cannot comment.

Supports LD students: Strongly agree


- a
I've been super impressed with how the classrooms are split up and often re-assessed so kids are challenged, never bored and learning more each day.


Effective school leaders: Agree


- a
Vice Principal and Principal are so vastly different personally that depending on the issue, you'll have the right resource for sure.

Develops character: Strongly agree


- a
Social skills are addressed and global awareness and kindness is demonstrated and taught.

Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree


- a
I have had great luck with the teachers my kids have gotten. Kind, patient, totally understanding and a passion for teaching.


Amount of homework: Agree


- a
It's traditional, but reasonable, with occasional out of the box ideas. Like, tracking the moon, or interesting movie choices that my kid can really learn from and be inspired. Occasional texts with google searches for geography lessons are fun, too.

SHE is an amazing experience all around and I have two kids with vastly different interests, challenges and talents. Not only is the school wonderful, but the parents are so incredibly welcoming and kind. Our family feels like we are a part of something important and fun right here in our community. My kids are challenged, valued and are growing and learning every day. I would pay to send my kids to SHE, no kidding. BIG fan.

4 years in and we love it. The children get more outside time than many other elementary kids.... the teachers take them out for breaks often. They are encouraged to bring snacks other than lunch as full bellies means better learners. Tons of extra curricular stuff to do, loads of parental volunteer opportunities... whatever floats your boat. Principal is great... she is even keeled and listens. Dr Montello Asst Principal is very hands on and knows each student and parent well. Teachers for the most part seem to love teaching. They expect a lot from the kids but so they should - that's life and the real world. Kids are loved, respected and given every opportunity to excel and excellence is recognized accordingly. No school is perfect - private or public. It is what the parents make of it and how involved they choose to be. Negative comments usually come from hands off parents who are not there and do not know what exactly is happening. Each to their own. The school is a gem and compared to many other ES in the area, it does a great job. So glad we lucked out and found this place.


Develops character: Strongly disagree

The atmosphere is getting very competitive, which does not tend to foster honesty, integrity, and fairness in students.

We are not very impressed by Sagamore Hills Elementary. We picked Sagamore because we wanted a small community school. The standardized testing is getting out of control And the children seem over-scheduled. The Principal, Julie Taylor, is conflict-avoidant and will not take a stand on anything. The Assistant Principal, Mark Montello, is fairly responsive. My son loves science, but the STEM program is lack-luster. The children are over scheduled and don't have time for play. There are some nice parents there, but the overall feel is very snobby if you're a newcomer. If you have not been there since kindergarten, it is difficult to break into the social scene.
