Wow, where to begin? To start the leadership at SGS is not the best. From the top down it seems that they are not at all happy to be there with our children. You hear teachers say degrading comments to kids, name calling from teachers to kids, and teachers giving dirty looks to the kids. It is turning into a sad state of affairs at SGS. The current administration seems to have run the place into the ground. NO longer are families beating down the door to get their kids in. They are running instead to other schools!
I am a student at this school. I have a lot of friends there that are easily made. I am always dealing with rumors that happen all the time. I have been going to this school all my life-things never change. The same girl(/boy) is every teachers pet. Year after year...Anyway,if you`re looking for a school without clics,girlfriend-boyfriend,and etc. this is school has it all. I mean EVERY grade!1st-8th!Probaly the worse thing is the principal.I`ll give her a 1. Yep. Thats what I think.
As a past parent, we were not happy with the overall atmosphere and attitudes of some of the teachers or parents. As a volunteer, I was able to observe a lot behind the scenes. It did not involve my child but I was not happy with what I saw and heard. Overall academic quality was pretty good. Religious teaching is confined to 'book learning' and does not apply or translate over into character building on a daily basis where students actually learn to apply principles to daily life. There are teachers who consistently verbally humiliate and bully students and do not set a good example. All in all, no better than public schools when it comes to reinforcing values. Parents are highly involved but I found many of their attitudes were questionable - gossip was rampant and depressing. Many people like it there and I guess there's a place for everyone.
This has been a most rewarding experience for our son as well as us, the parents. I daily impressed with the love and committment the teachers and staff show the chldren. They foster a positive learning environment where the children love learning and enjoy being challenged. They identify early if intervention is needed so no childs needs go unmet. I could not have dreamed of a better learning environment to cultivate a love of learning that will last a lifetime. The No Bully policy is enforced and children learn acceptance and tolerance of those things different. This is a model educational facility. The school is swipe card secure, and in todays world that is reassuring that our childrens safety comes first.
I have had the pleasure and joy of having seven children attend this school. Now however it is our grand-children that attend this school. The teachers are always dedicated to raising the bar of teaching and giving students a very positive educational experience. the student that pass through this school do so gaining confidence and skill that pave the way to lifelong learning skills and eventual graduation from many top ranked Universities and Colleges. A student gets a broad well balanced education opportunity while also learning the basic principles of the Ten Commandments and religious education. This school is definately a five in the rating of fantastic educational enviroment.
