SAA is providing an excellent education for life for my two daughters. From the top down, I see principal and faculty who spiritually and scholastically lead by example. One daughter has now finished two half marathons...this training was an open invite to all students in the class and at least four joined that first year. Although my wife and I are both trained musically, they have learned musical elements we could never have taught them. We are enjoying the music they make. SAA faculty have also facilitated peer interaction in Family Groups with older students for spiritual growth. We send our girls to school each day knowing the SAA team prays with and for each student. Thank God and SAA!
Skagit Adventist Academy has very caring teachers that strive to reach out to those who have difficulty. My shy kids are in 1st and 3rd grade and their teachers have helped them come out of their shells. Their peers are nice, polite and generally well behaved. They are consistently improving scholastically and I am very glad to have the opportunity to have them in this small but well rounded school. The uniforms are great and make it so we don't have to have wardrobe discussions in the morning when they get up in the morning. They are nationally ranked in the top 95% scholastically. They could have more sports but because of their small size it limits teams sports. They do have more alternative sports and teach mountain biking and rock climbing which is great.
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.
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.
