    We have experienced the lower, middle, and upper schools and our children have had extraordinary teachers who have taken the time to get to know and appreciate them as individuals. Small class size (around 16 kids per class) contributes to this, but it’s just as much about the genuine interest and care that they show our children. Every time our teenagers rave about their teachers at dinner (a frequent occurrence!) my wife and I feel so fortunate that the strong connections they formed with teachers in the Lower School have been replicated in the other divisions. Our kids have different strengths and interests and they have each found a home and great friends through academics, the arts and athletics. Speaking of the arts, our daughter was so excited to watch the Tonys with friends and then learn that next year’s theater/arts trip to NYC will include seeing Hadestown and having dinner with the cast!

    My colleagues in the Upper School are incredible! They are a tremendous talent in their academic disciplines whether it is in music, art, science, math, English, or history. At the same time, they also want to be role models and mentors to their students in order to build a positive and strong sense of community. With out a doubt, SSSAS most certainly exemplifies the concept that teachers and staff who are thoroughly invested and engaged in their school help students become successful no matter their background.
    We and most importantly, our child, love SSSAS! We came to the Lower School at SSSAS from another independent in the area, and the difference between the two has been nothing but for the better! We plan to stay through graduation. The teachers, staff, and admin are simply stellar, and truly work to instill the mission of goodness as well as knowledge in our child. There are too many positives about SSSAS to write in this review. You must check it out!
