I had the opportunity to visit a computer lab and a robotics class. The students were engaged and as middle school students, they showed great collaboration and problem solving. The teacher taught by using an actual problem for the students to solve.
Hard-working, dedicated staff. The front office lady is super sweet and always has a smile on her face. It's comforting knowing that the students are more than just a number. Everyone knows everyone - it's a small town feel in this big city.
My duaghter has been going to this school for four years now and she's very happy here. Very personalized teaching. Great principal. It's a small school. A few years ago the school hired a Dean of Students and this was fantastic. They teach discipline, respect and no bullying. I appreciate everything they're doing for my daughter. I wish there were more schools like this.
Not sure who these people are who are posting but let me tell you about this school. The school is horrible I put my child there because of the cultural diversity and i had to hold him back one year because he was still not reading at his level the teachers are horrible especially the ones that i have encountered. They don't like doing after school tutoring and if your child has a disability good luck! they dont put out the effort to know the child instead the get frustrated with the kids as if its not their job to do good by the kids. The coaches pulls and pushes the kids! horrible just horrible the teaches yell and be rough with the kids its just a sad environment i would not recommend it if you want whats best for your child stay clear!!
My son goes to SST. we have been happy here. I was skeptical because of the location and the play area< but schools about education and that is what they are providing! i am happy to say we are staying another year and my daughter will also be attending this year.
Our daughter loves this school! It's her first year here and she is so very happy. The discipline policy is strict, which keeps bullies and troublemakers at bay, (a child was removed from her 3rd grade class within the first month due to his behavior; they're no nonsense!) She loves participating in all of the extra-curricular activities and is active in their reading club and show choir. Her teacher is highly qualified, and helps with tutoring whenever needed.
I have my three kids in this school. My kids and I love it. I wish they have high school too so I don't have have to look for another school for my 8th grader. Nice teachers and staff. the only bad thing is transportation/No buses
