Be warned that bullying is a major issue in this school. The kids are very disrespectful to others and authority.

My son has thrived at SFT. It's apparent the entire staff cares about the kids' education and well-being. The students have many choices for involvement in clubs and athletics. I have been extremely impressed with the way the students are so respectful, and I look forward to my other children attending SFT as well!
