My daughter graduated from SAR. I can t thank enough the teachers and the director. SAR program and great staff with their commitments to kids allowed my daughter to grow academically and socially at her own pace. Now my granddaughter who is 3.5 continues down the SAR road. She is very happy and loves the teachers.

I have three children in the school and cannot describe the school in enough superlatives. It is outstanding academically, as well as in developing children's midot. I was initially hesitant with the 'no walls' deal, but oddly enough, it works. We could not be happier.

SAR's goal is to make learning fun for the kids. It certainly succeeds in that; my child loves SAR. Unfortunately, SAR often succeeds in this goal at the price of a rigorous academic environment. SAR kids are 'behind' their private and even public school peers in virtually every area! 'Good enough' should not be 'enough' for our kids. The school is currently undergoing an almost complete administrative turnover. Instead of recruiting the best and most talented administrators from other schools, SAR made its selections on what most people see as purely nepotistic terms. The new principal has zero educational background. Most parents are hoping that he simply keeps the current polcies while he learns on the job.

SAR academy is a jewish day school. I love the fact that is open classrooms; no walls or doors seperating classrooms. I am an SAR student. I think SAR is the greatest desision my parents made for me. I used to go to schools that the kids would always leave me out. Just because I wasn't good at a sport I always got picked last on a team. No teachers or kids ever helped me. No one is ever left out in SAR and the teachers are always caring and understanding. They will help you with a subject or sport that you aren't good with. I can't wait to see all my friends again and go back to school next year!
