Teacher effectiveness: Very effective
Submitted by a parent · November 16, 2015
In response to the previous reviewer…of COURSE they don't get paid well! They are here because they LOVE what they do, they are dedicated and passionate educators, unlike many public school teachers who are in it for the tenure, benefits, and... more

Develops grit: Strongly agree
Submitted by a parent · November 16, 2015
Students are expected to work very independently, and are supported as needed but really are sent back often to edit, review, etc., until they can present their best work.

Develops empathy: Strongly agree
Submitted by a parent · November 16, 2015
Lots of service learning, lots of cross-grade experiences (older kids supporting younger students, etc.). Quaker values are the underpinning of the entire curriculum…the light in EVERYONE should be celebrated (and is at SSFS!)

Develops honesty: Strongly agree
Submitted by a parent · November 16, 2015
The teachers model and discuss these traits daily, and follow up on any issues that arise
