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’d love to see more activities/clubs incorporated. While it always sucked not having the athletics department be as prominent as it could be, incorporating more clubs would help take your mind off it!
When I came to SASA as a freshman I was told I was going to get the best possible education in my area. This was a flat out lie. Not only do the teachers not care about their students (except Mrs. Schneider) but our sole guidance counselor treats us with no respect, it is as if we are just some numbers in the system. I have had numerous problems with administration and they have flat out told me that they are only concerned about their “reputation.” Do not listen to the stories. The academics are average, they overwork you, the barhrooms are unbearable, many sections of the student body are stuck up, the sports are limited, the food is okay, the teachers hate their jobs, and you will hate yourself for making the decision to go here. To put this in better perspective I have a 4.0, so no I am not just a kid who doesn’t care about school and always complains. I actually cared about my education but honestly now I don’t because we hardly get any recognition for what we do.
