Wide range of classes ranging from average to very interesting. If you are interested in robotics, definitely join Seattle Academy's program (as of my year we are the best in the state and almost won the FTC World Championship). The teachers are very supportive and approachable, and the students are generally very kind. The school can be a little clique-y but most high schools are. The drawbacks of Seattle Academy is that the academic rigor can be lacking sometimes. There are definitely demanding classes such as American Studies, but some classes say Honors but are not as difficult. Also, there are times when Seattle Academy seems very disorganized and information can be late to get to you when it's about scheduling or something important. Overall, I've loved my experience and there's definitely something for everyone (super strong robotics, speech and debate, and arts programs).

Though plagued by a lack of diversity among the student body, the curriculum and classroom setting remains extremely open to change and suggestions by students. Taking a variety of courses is extremely easy and students are given freedom to choose their level of math, foreign language, science classes, honors/non-honors track, and electives. However, the greatest strength in the school is their ability to prepare students to share their ideas in a clear and understandable fashion. All classes include a presentation element since the first day of sixth grade or freshman year. With the construction of the new STREAM building and a new Middle School building on the way, the facilities are new and clean. Students are also able to pursue a variety of extracurricular activities and travel experiences.
SAAS is one of the least diverse schools in Seattle, but they seem to be trying to fix that. The college prep progtam is really really good and you can always get help and set up meetings with your teachers. If you're struggling, there are people to help you. The reason I resent the faculty is that the students whose parents give a lot of money to the school get more opportunities and are excused easily.
