Alum: I had a great experience as a middle schooler here. The principal when I was there was not a great leader, but the teachers here are awesome and make learning enjoyable. Since I have left, there have been several incidences of bullying and the administration has done a very poor job in handling the situation. Parents went to the media before administration did their jobs.

Parent: SLS is a special place. For students, it's where teachers know you and care about how you are getting along : socially, emotionally, and academically. It's where kindness matters. And, while the SLS students are given the tools to go out into the world as leaders, they are also taught to be kind and inclusive ones.
My son entered in the fifth grade and graduated high school last spring. He has formed relationships with his teachers that were transformative, encouraging him to go deeper in his learning and getting him excited about areas of study or extra curricular activities that he did not consider his particular strength. Watching him thrive and form life long friendships with his peers and teachers was worth every penny. Also, he was well prepared and is thriving at one of the most elite colleges in the country...and he is happy there. We couldn't ask for any more!
