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!

My daughters started school here last year. Everyday they came home excited to talk about what they’ve learned and eager for the next day. Both were challenged in their own ways and reached their goals... More
