I am so happy with my daughter's kindergarten education at Sabin. All of the kindergarten teachers were wonderful, as well as art, music, gym and library. The principal is great, and the office staff is so nice and helpful. The students are also really nice kids. And any bad behavior is taken care of properly and swiftly by the administration and security.

Cons- Sabin is a an average school. Is no longer a Magnet duo Language school. Kids graduate from Sabin not witting in cursive because cursive is not included in the teachers curriculum. Sad to say ! Sabin tends to hire very young teachers that just graduated. with little or no experience. Pros- Many after school activities for the kids and sports. The principal seems to keep it fun for the kids. My 17 year old attended this school from kinder through 8th grade and I currently have a sixth grader that loves the school and most of the teachers.

I like this school but the participation of parents is almost nothing. I think this school is going down because parents look like they do not care their kids.

This school is bilingual and has teachers that really care about their students. They provide plenty of extra learning opportunities outside of class as well.

I want to congratulate the Principal and the teachers for their well done jobe during the last year and the energy that they demostrate the first day @ school year. I think that exist a lack of cultural sensitive and communications. I don't accept as a theory that the parents of this particular school are not interested in their children education, the true here is that the principal and his staff are not effective to finding a different ways to have the parents motivated in the school activities, because they can mesuare that parent involvement only to show up to a meeting or the open house day if they got the information the date before. Please be more efficient in the communication and doing a variety of activities that involve parents of all kind. Best whishes!!!

I love this school. The principal and staff are sensitive to the needs of the children. However the lack of parental involvement is disturbing to me. This school could be so much better if parents would become involve in their child's education.

I have attended workshops for parents in the morning and the evening. I have learned a lot about ways to help my child read. My son is new to the school and has struggled with reading. This school has done so much to help me understand and my son loves reading now. He has read to me for the first time. Thank you Sabin, the reading teacher, and the counselor to.
