Parent: We LOVE SFES! We have a 6th & 1st grader & can say that in the 7 years we have been here, we have had only incredibly positive experiences! Here are a few things we love:
1-The teachers genuinely love the students. And the students love the teachers! They are great at communication using email and other programs like Class Dojo, Remind.
2-They use project-based learning and incorporate STEM across all grade levels. Last year, our kindergartner used robots to learn literacy & digital microscopes to examine owl pellets! And grades 3-6 use Chromebooks with Google Classroom which has been terrific.
3-I feel very safe leaving my kids at SFES. There’s a camera & intercom system to check your driver’s license then you must check in on a computer that scans your license and verifies DOB. Also, you must be certified to volunteer & background checked to chaperone.
4-They believe in the arts! Each week they have Music (w/ an incredibly inspiring music teacher!), PE, Art, & Spanish!

Parent: Our son is currently in the 2nd grade. He has been at the school for two years, and it has been a wonderful experience. The enthusiasm of the teachers, who are truly experts in the subjects they teach, is infectious. They consistently set high standards for all students at every stage of their academic career. This is a school that prioritizes academics and the students themselves; it is targeted to students with intellectual curiosity and a strong work ethic. We are very happy here!
