My best decision was enrolling in SAS.I don't regret it for a minute.We all know each other and the teachers are really accessible.The classes are hard and lots of material is covered but it's manageable.
I am currently a junior at this school. The students at this school have a very rigorous schedule. The student has to be willing to work and really learn how to manage their time to be successful in this school. This school has many oppotunities for scholarships. It also saves the student 2 years of college when they graduate 12th grade. There are a number of extracurricular activities students can join. The teachers really care. The hardest thing about this school is probably the block schedule. It is really rough because each high school class is an hour and a half long, so learning to manage time is imperative. Overall, the school is very good. Every high school class is pretty much AP. The student really matures faster when he attends this school. He learns to focus on the important things, instead of high school drama like other public schools today. The students there get along and help each other. I'm still getting used to my college/high school schedule, but I know in the end, it will be worth it. If you have a very studious child or perhaps one who is not so studious but nevertheless intelligent, I highly recommend this school for him/her.
I graduated from this school a few years ago. This program opens great opportunities for everyone that attends. It is just like a regular high school, but we are just closer like a family. Personally, this school was a excellent experience allowing me to show my true academic potential.
