I am a junior at SAAS and I love it. I have been at SAAS since middle school. The amazing science and arts electives are something that is unique to here. I can take neuroscience right after ceramics right after psychology if I want! Theater and visual arts are particularly strong. All academic classes have different levels to them so that each student can choose how much they would like to challenge themselves. The most challenging classes are American Studies (joint Honors English/Honors History) and Advanced Chemistry. The teachers are great and have diverse teaching styles, so there's always someone who teaches the way you learn. While SAAS has excellent sports teams (soccer, volleyball, golf, and ultimate frisbee are the strongest), the school doesn't revolve around sports like a traditional high school. The college prep is amazing, they have answered all of my questions incredibly well and I have total faith in them going into college applications. I've enjoyed my time at SAAS!

I have three children at SAAS and I am extremely happy with their education. The professors are top notch, and the class selection is fantastic. They have a wide ranges of arts and science options, and also require critical courses for computational thinking, financial literacy, etc. All of my girls are wonderful public speakers now, and have developed excellent study skills. The leadership really prioritizes continuous quality improvement to meet the goals of the school and the community.
Seattle Academy is a good school for many reasons. They have great arts, robotics, and debate classes. The “culture of performance” teaches students to have confidence in themselves and teaches them not to be afraid of the public eye.

However, the middle school is frequently overlooked. They receive less funding and worse amenities. Robotics was only recently started in the middle school, and each year their season is cut short due to funding. Until this year the middle schoolers were put in an old building with leaking ceilings and holes in the walls. The teachers in the middle school show no interest in teaching. The middle school also lacked rigorous academics. Overall the high school is great, but the middle school needs a lot of improvement.
