    Sage offers an incredible education to students who really work hard and aim to achieve success. Classes are easy to get into and the teachers are very kind and supportive. Additionally, the wide variety of clubs gives everyone an opportunity to get involved. My absolute favorite thing about Sage is its Spring at Sage program, where, after second semester finals, students are treated to cool seminars or international/domestic trips. Sage does falter in its student culture, as peer pressure is very high, and people tend to focus more on the grade rather than the learning material. All in all, this is an excellent high school you should definitely consider!

    LOVE IT HERE! Everyone is very focused on reaching their goals and pushing their passions, but the environment isn't competitive. Instead, I find it very supporting because despite how many of the students will find themselves competing against each other to get into the most prestigious universities, there is a communal respect for another that has always been there. The teachers are amazing and are always willing to work with you. All our sports are good and people get recruited for them (despite what you may hear).
    As a parent of 2 alumni who have had incredibly experiences at college, I am most grateful for the learning and experiences my children had a Sage. My children were very well prepared to enter highly selective colleges. The AP courses were well taught with excellent teachers. The teachers are engaging with the students and establish an incredible rapport with their students. The teachers foster a love of learning. My children greatly enjoyed the athletics and excelled, and one even won CIF.

    Most importantly, my children enjoyed their high school years because of the many ways to get involved in their community. That involvement resulted in critical in self discovery and taught them effective leadership, attributes that they drew up on college. Sage Hill changed their lives.
