Fantastic school to get your child off to a great start. We love the focus on academics and the equal emphasis placed on creating a well rounded child who learns to make a positive contribution to the whole community.
Small classes, green school,fantastic academics, arts and humanities emphasis, community service, mentoring, cross-curricular collaboration, health and fitness, plus a wonderful and caring faculty and staff. Sayre emphasizes compassion, wisdom and integrity.
As a former student, i would highly recommend Sayre School to any parent. Their Upper School curriculum is challenging and prepared me for the jump to college. Sayre is a close knit community and and child would be lucky to go there
I am a lifer at this school and I personally do not like it. I have gone through the Lower, Middle, and High Schools and have never been satisfied. The 'Sayre Community' is not what it claims to be, it is more of a judgmental group of people trying to out buy each other.
Sayre is a wonderful place. A true community, where every child is challenged, engaged and understood. From the Pre-K3 and Montessori Program through the 12th grade, Sayre is concered about the development of the whole-child. It has been an amazing experience for my daughter. She is confident and independent yet connected and inquisitive. She is happy every morning, and excited every afternoon. She sings in spanish and is beginning to read, and she is 4! Her favorite things in the classroom are the language lessons, making her map of the contenients, and reading in the Library. And beyond her own small little world, she is part of the larger Sayre Community, interacting with the other grades and older students. We are really a part of the school. It is nurturing her development and supporting me as a parent! Sayre was definitely the right choice for us!
