School for Advanced Studies - Wolfson Reviews

School for Advanced Studies is a really awesome place overall. High school classes are all AP except for Pre-Calculus and are held in the afternoon. During the morning, the teachers hold open office hours for students to swing by and ask questions or get tutoring. The teachers are very friendly and extremely supportive; the small school size will allow you to build more intimate relationships with them and with your fellow peers. The small school size is also a downside as well. Because there are are only about 120 students throughout the 11th and 12th grade classes, clubs and activities are certainly lacking. Additionally, there are no science teachers. If you want to take AP science classes, you're going to have to rely on self-study. Though, that's not inherently a bad thing. School for Advanced Studies demands that students be self-driven and willing to go beyond and learn outside of the classroom, and for that reason, I think it's a pretty neat school.

SAS has one of the best environments, teachers, and opportunities for high-achieving students. In this cool, it is shown that with hard work, passion, and faith you can get anywhere you want! The teachers and a staff are very helpful and supportive of the students, especially as they go through the process of getting really to go to college.
SAS Wolfson is truly cultivated for students to thrive and succeed within their high school career and within their futures. All the staff, teachers, faculty, and students clearly care about each other and are extremely supportive. I applaud SAS for being the best of the best!
