We have absolutely loved SCPA since day 1. Our children are now in the 7th and 4th grades. Teachers are awesome. K-12 together in one building makes for wonderful interactions between upper and lower school students and a fun and inclusive school environment. The school does not shy away from challenging it's students which is the number one reason that we chose this school for our children. They instill the importance of accountability at a very young age while also focusing on strong character traits & leadership. And try not to mistake the fact that they get homework in elementary school for it being an uncaring environment. Our children have always felt well loved by their teachers - even my rambunctious, sometimes in trouble, hard to sit still 4th grade boy! He needs boundaries & guidance and has been given that by each of his teachers in a caring & effective way. We have never felt intimidated by the staff or administration. In fact we are thankful that they run a tight ship!

This school is amazing! I wish more people with good experiences would post something other than having comments from a couple of years ago that are from disgruntled families who probably had students who did not make good choices. My son has not always been the perfect child, and every time he has made an undesirable choice, the teachers and principal have not only been fair, they have also been supportive in helping him see alternatives. They not only focus on academics, but also on character. I feel my child will have many doors open to him because I see the changes they have supported in his decisions. I am so lucky that our child has an opportunity to attend this school! This school isn't for every family, and you do have a CHOICE.
The teachers are amazing! In addition to the main classroom teacher, each classroom has a dedicated Assistant. So, there are at least two teachers in the room to work with the students. Not only does this allow for great relationships to be built, but it means the main teachers can focus on their primary duties and delegate some of the other tasks.
