Sayre School Reviews

I feel that I have received a very solid and well-rounded education during my time at Sayre. I have had so many opportunities to learn new things and advance my knowledge, thanks to Sayre's wonderful faculty and amazing resources. However, the school is very small; there are fewer than 75 people in my graduating class, many of whom have been attending since preschool. The school places a lot of emphasis on sports - spending a great deal of money on a new athletic complex while still lacking a dedicated performing arts space. The vast majority of the school's students are white and come from affluent families, and the school has had a few incidents of students using their privilege to intimidate others. That said, Sayre does give a great amount of weight to creating a safe, inclusive environment in which every one of its students can feel like they deserve to be there. Overall, I think Sayre gave me a great education and every chance to succeed in college and beyond.

This school is great for the people it appeals to: People who are shallow, are willing to spend all of their free time on school, and who enjoy spending time with equally shallow people. In my experience this school sucks the souls out of its students without them even realizing. Those who are smart enough to realize are often stricken with depression, lack of friends, and lack of passion. The teachers assign piles of work with no regard for how it might be affecting their students' mental health. The community is as fake and plastic as they come. Yes, this school will probably give you a great education and get you into the college of your dreams, but if you wish to have a soul at the end of your high school career I recommend looking elsewhere. I'm in my third year at Sayre and I'm seriously considering online school or some alternative option for my fourth year. This school is great for many people, but if you're anything like me it could easily beat you into the ground.
The academics are good, but could be better. Sayre Middle School has a great Social Studies experience in 7th and 8th grade but 6th was mediocre. English is a good program too. The Foreign Language courses are just average, not outstanding. The School offers a good advanced program for math, but also not outstanding. The fine arts programs are nice but could be better. The athletics are good if you like to play basketball, lacrosse, soccer and volleyball. Other than that, there is NO support whatsoever for Cross Country and Track and Field. Sayre Middle school doesn’t offer as many academic opportunities for advanced studies, which is disappointing
