Most of the students are well behaved, but a few continue to bully my 12 yr sped student, and little was done...I left vm messages both with the sped director Jill Yvon and the AQC Karen Hollenbeck, with no response at all.
I enjoy SABIS.They have great sports teams.The academics can be stressful from the constant testing.The discipline is horrible. Other than that its okay .I've been at the school since 1st grade and I'm going to 7th grade,and I love all the teachers especially Mrs. DeGray!
Sabis International Charter School Springfield Ma is the best. Discipline strict and good....I believe in the saying "spare the rod, spoil the child", My kids are in 2nd and 3rd grade and is the best school I could ask for. It strives for both academic and extra curricula activities. Go Sabis Goooooo!!!
My school is a horrible place. The students there are absolutely horrible I don't understand how anyone can possibly send their kids there for so long. I have had a horrible experience at this school. The teachers often are rude and like the bad behaved, humorous students who are athletes and a class clown. The education is great. Often times teachers areunfair and students distract you and bully you 24/7. Please listen to me if you want to save your students from harming themselves and hating who they are. There is tons of weed flying around the school. Hookahs being smoked in classes. Cannabis in backpacks. Pregnant teenagers. Leave this school, it will be so hard to learn even if it's such a great place to learn. DONT SEND YOUR CHILDREN HERE PLEASE FROM 6-12 GRADE
My son goes to Sabis, he is currently in kindergarden. The school has a very high acamedic goal even for kindergarden, although I do not see this as a negative thing sometimes it does put a lot of pressure on the young students. The parents are expected to help a lot with the academic goal also. The teachers are great and very friendly. I will remain living in Springfield so that my son can continue in Sabis. It is a great school.
In the 2011 class we had 129 students graduating over 99% from the 9th grade, the class of 2011 had a cumulative scholarship dollar amount of 9 million dollars. This is an amazing amount of money for a Springfield School.
My children attend Sabis.Overall we love it.I do not feel the no bullying tolerance is at 0 % as stated.Parent involvement is not as encouraged as I would like . Moreso in the upper gradesBut the educational piece is strong.(maybe to stressful at times).
My daughter goes to Sabis, she is in kindergarten going to first grade. I have emailed her teacher at least monthly sometimes more with questions. I have gotten extra work sent home to work on with my daughter. My daughter has given gifts at holidays for her teachers. I do think there is too much pressure on the children to learn, but I feel that my daughter will get the best education she can get there. I handle the extra things outside of school. My daughter loves her school and teachers.
They have a high academic strength, but I find that the academic push can be stressful on students. They need a little more creativity to develop both brain functions. It is one of the best schools in MA and we feel safe having our students there. The staff has been quick to act on any issue we have had. As a SABIS parent, we continually work on the areas that our children miss out on at school in the lower grades (play time, arts&crafts, exercise, social development). Every school has strengths/weaknesses, and SABIS is tops for education.
