    This school is great for developing character and independence, however if you are an academically motivated student the options are limited. The number of acclerated courses is relatatively small, and the only way to excel academically is to take advanced stem courses, because there are no advanced humanities courses, except for electives offered only in senior year. As a high school, Sonoma academy’s admin falls short in helping the academically excelling student experience high school the way they wish too. It is great for those who wish to have a more relaxed experience, but is not for anyone else.

    Amazing experience. Classmates from middle school split into 3 different schools. All the went to SA are graduating with stellar grades, no drug/alcohol issues, and have evolved to be interesting, thoughtful, well spoken young adults.
    I go here and like it a lot, it's a very hands-on school. If you need help with anything you can always go to a teacher. The main problem is just that it's really really white. It's very much a bubble, but at least we're aware of it I guess. It's just hard to have a well-rounded discussion on race issues with everyone being of one race.
