I highly recommend Sallie Z. Teachers, staff, and administrators are friendly and genuinely care about the students academically and socially. My two children attended and enjoyed their experience. The school encourages parental involvement. I have always felt comfortable contacting the school and interacting with the teachers and administrators. Various family activities and events are held throughout the year.
