Sandy Spring Friends School Reviews
Both Shamika & Ashaki were phenomenal throughout the admissions process. Their responsiveness, attention to detail, kindness & professionalism were top notch. They both spent time really getting to know us, and contributed to a feeling that no matter what happened, we had a fairest opportunity in the process.
Further, to have received an invite right away for my daughter to join a cooking class for new middle schoolers this week blew my mind- we are months away from start & they would be forgiven for taking a break before jumping into welcoming activities! Thank U SSFS!
The school works really hard to make it inviting to everyone regardless of race, background, sexual orientation, etc.
Excellent teachers, excellent communication provided by Admin staff. They are so nice and so helpful.
Amazing school A+++
