I am currently a high schooler at Saginaw Arts and Sciences Acadamy and am having a great experience! All the students genuinely want to learn all the teachers there want to see the students succeed and take time to explain and elaborate everything they teach. The school is broken up into concentration classes which means students who are gifted in the arts or math and science excell in their chosen AP classes such as dance, theatre, art, social studies, voice keyboard, and math science. There are a lot of high school and even middle school extra curricular activities that all students could attend. There is not a huge focus on sports but there are joint programs, plays, and concerts as a part of the school experience. There are contests, performances, and many other opportunities provided, many students have been awarded for these such as a silver key award and financial winnings as well to go to the school for necessities that will fund the concentration's needs.

I like the academic aspect of Saginaw Arts and Sciences Academy. SASA has very advanced academic courses and a very good math and science program. The teachers involved in the math/science program actually care about their students' success in the future. SASA also prepares its students greatly for college in terms of academics. I believe that SASA's weakest quality is its sports, extra curricular activities, and administrative counseling.
I enjoyed my time here and feel that I was well prepared for college. However, some of the teachers here are horrible and have no respect for students. The current administration is terrible and this school is highly underfunded. It is a good school with great academics and it's sports program is slowly, but surely coming back.
