This is such a great idea! Pausing to verbalize a thank you is so important and yet something we rarely do.

Maybe a good school for students with a desire to learn. The teachers are better than in public schools, but you do not expect individualized program or attention for "specific" students, not necessarily special needs students. They are not admitted. They build some sort of a robotic, snobbish type of students, probably they think of a future leaders type. "Art for art sake".

It's not a cliche: This is a great school. We have students in upper and middle school because of the learning experience. The teachers expect a lot, but they are committed to the students. The classes really teach the kids how to think, how to process the information, how to provide a thoughtful answer. The students are first grounded in the basics of the coursework. Then they're able to take on bigger challenges. This isn't to say that there aren't hiccups along the ways. But we routinely find the teachers are willing to spend extra time with our children to help them work on the concepts that trouble them. Maybe this review sounds like I'm a "homer," but I believe in the school, its curriculum, and the outcomes.

Poor administration. Kids are loaded with work each day and graded to discourage. Scores at SAT are great due to dedication from the students and their parents. Stay away unless your kid is genius.

Excellent school! Outstanding Head of School and tremendous Faculty that spend quality time with every student. In 2014 this school was deservedly ranked number 13 in the nation by the Washington Post. We could not be happier that our kids attend this school.

We enrolled our daughter at Sage Ridge for 7th grade and couldn't be more pleased with what she has learned this past year. What impressed us most was the breadth of the curriculum, the dedication of the teachers, and the spirit of the students. My husband and I are both professors, so we are very much aware of what is not being taught in the WCSD. What Sage Ridge kids are learning as early as seventh grade is how to be disciplined students, but also how to be curious and open and unafraid while wading into some deep waters in terms of core class content. Our daughter was challenged by each teacher but never in a way that felt discouraging. We also found the administration approachable and supportive. We will definitely consider Sage Ridge for high school once our daughter completes middle school next year.

I agree with the parent who said it used to be a wonderful school. While the teachers are excellent and have provided our child with so many wonderful things so many of these very teachers have been inexplicably let go and run out of town that one wonders what the motivations of those in charge really are. While in our experience the teachers (not all but most) are generous and thoroughly professional those in charge seem to be consumed with protecting themselves and their reputations. If we had to do it again we'd think very carefully given the current circumstances.

Sage Ridge provides a traditional college preparatory experience. The quality of the instruction is outstanding. The faculty are caring, involved, and motivated to help your child rise to their potential, whatever that may be. My children have flourished here and I see them becoming active, interested, and engaged young adults.

If you image yourself or your student going to to one of the most selective colleges in the country, then this is the place for you. Sage Ridge School is a school designed for students and parents who are looking for a place that asks everyone to strive for excellence. The teaching is top notch, and the teachers work hard to make sure every student is successful. Because the school's standards are so high, students are going to be required to work, but the payoff is fantastic results when it comes to college acceptances. If that sounds like you or your students, I highly recommend Sage Ridge School to you.



- a parent
Our experience at Sage Ridge has been an A+ so far. The level of teaching in a nurturing environment is outstanding. My child's English and Math skills have improved from good to superior. But most of all school is a joy to attend instead of boredom. Thank you!
