    I can't imagine a better place to work than Sage Hill School. Not only is the academic curriculum top-tier, but the facilities, campus and faculty/staff absolutely cannot be matched!

    Our students and parents are very involved and it is a real joy to work with and get to know them in different ways. We have super talented faculty members who really take the time to work with their students and help them learn, not just give them a good grade for no reason. Staff and administrators also work so hard to keep the School running efficiently, even during a global pandemic!

    I feel supported here in all that I do, and I feel good about our School and what it provides to our students and community. We stand by our mission and values in all that we do, and I am proud to be a part of such an inclusive and special place.

    We love Sage! We were a new family to Sage this year and it has been fantastic. Organization and clear and constant communication are on point. Multiple opportunities for students to be involved and engaged. Inclusive. Administration, teachers and staff have all been kind and helpful.
    I came here as as sophomore because I was unhappy with my public high school education, and I couldn't be happier with the classes and teachers. I love how involved the staff and faculty are with the students, and I truly feel important at this school. There are so many resources, like an internship program, college counseling, and volunteer work, to help us succeed, and I know I will be well prepared for life after I graduate. The small class sizes are beneficial, and it enables the teachers to give one on one aid. During Covid-19, Sage has handled distance learning quite well, putting in special cameras in the classrooms and ensuring that the teachers are open and flexible to students' needs. I haven't felt a disturbance in my classes and educational path, and they have transitioned smoothly as needed to keep the students safe. I have no doubt that when we go back, it will be to a safe and regulated environment with proper social distancing and health requirements.
