I absolutely love this school. Before coming to SAS, I didn't think it was possible to have an administration who cares about it's students, the ability to feel at home and welcomed in my school, passionate teachers that encourage critical thinking, and a fun high school experience all at once. However, not only does SAS Wolfson campus provide all of this, but it also provides an extensive amount of resources that either better prepare me for college or provide me with opportunities to have the possibility of attending Ivy League schools and actually have a decent chance at getting accepted.

The only complaints I have is that there isn't a music program, the school breakfast isn't the best, there isn't a cafeteria, and the classrooms are a bit dreary. These are all so insignificant compared to everything else the school offers though, that it's something I can easily overlook.

School for Advanced Studies (SAS) was an experience like no other. It was not your "typical" high school environment, it was a small, intimate place that provided a variety of opportunities. Because of the small population, teachers were accessible to the students and everybody had a chance to get to know their classmates. I was fortunate enough to receive the opportunity to get an Associates Degree, for free, while finishing up high school. Moreover, the teachers at the school cared about their job, they went out of their way to ensure that the students would pass the Advanced Placement exams. They did not simply lecture every class, but instead gave a diverse amount of assignments that could cater to several learning styles. The only thing that I feel can change, is the amount of classes that the school offers. The school only offers three-four AP classes a school year, they should offer at least six-seven AP classes, to offer a broader education.
School for Advanced Studies (SAS) Wolfson is a public school with a dual-enrollment program for high school Juniors and Seniors in which students take college classes at Miami Dade College (a community college) each semester.
It is a rather small school; we only occupy 4 classrooms for all high school classes and blend in with college students when we’re taking dual-enrollment classes. There are only around 130 students at SAS so everyone gets to know each other and form connections.
Students are required to take a minimum of 3 college classes per semester and maintain a minimum GPA of 3.0.
As a student, I get to sacrifice my summers taking college classes and most of my time studying, all in the name of graduating from high school with an Associates Degree.
But as demanding as that sounds, I can’t say I hate it; I love my school and the people in it. No matter how much work I have to do, I’ve loved every minute of my time at SAS and I wouldn’t change anything if I could.
