I am a mother of two boys, and I have been in search for a good preschool in Skagit County. I have been taking tours at different schools assessing what would be best for my children. I believe preschool should be an amazing experience, it is when our little ones are first introduced to a learning environment. To me a well-rounded school offers learning through classroom experience, art, music, computers, and physical activities. So far I have only found one school in the area that offers this to our preschoolers. Skagit Adventist Academy has overall surpassed all the other preschools in the area for teaching our children to be successful and introducing to them many different aspects of learning. I want my children to love going to school, and to learn as much as possible in a fun, loving environment.

Love This school! Caring teachers, safe environment and creative classrooms.. Well worth the investment. My son has beenn here for 3 years and we have been very impressed with the level of excellence and caring. It is a great family community feeling. Thank you to the SAA staff and families for making us feel welcomed.

This is a gem of a school. The school has made great strides in the past year and administration has been vastly improved. I would recommend this school to anyone looking for a nurturing environment. Great kids and great students!

Its really all about attitude, so what I've experienced so far is amazing teachers that have inspired me to think of even becoming a teacher when I grow up, so I can affect somebody the way the teachers have affected my life in a positive way.

The teachers at Skagit Adventist School are attentive to their students and provide a nurturing atmosphere for them to learn. Most importantly for my husband and I, the teachers demonstrate and talk about God's love each and every day.

Like many smaller schools Skagit Adventist does not offer as many extracurricular activities, but I have yet to meet a more dedicated and loving group of teachers. They truly care about your child.

I have become disenchanted with this school. My daughter now goes to public highschool in Burlington she has gone from almost failing everything to A's and B's. Most of the teachers just don't seem to want to help them succeed. My son is in 7th grade and failing miserably I really don't want to change schools in the middle of the year but I don't know what else to do.

As a parent I've had to consider whether paying for my children to go to this particular private school is worth the expense. The quality of education that they have received is mediocre and the quality of peers is questionable. Administration does not seem to address these concerns.

The school is a great place for those who would like to learn, but they don't have very many extracurricular activitys.

Academic programs are strong K-8. Teachers are responsive, supportive, and effective.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
