    Our family ADORES the Saklan School!

    It is a hidden gem just minutes from our home in Lafayette. Every day our 5th grade son can't wait to go to school. Because of the small class size, amazing faculty and project-based curriculum, he has a true love for learning.

    The school manages to balance strong academics with a culture of empathy and community service. A typical Saklan student is confident, curious and incredibly compassionate.

    We have wonderful public schools in Lafayette, but chose Saklan to provide a more nurturing, academically stimulating and creative environment for our son.

    Saklan is a gem of a school. The students show up each morning excited to be there and to engage with their teachers. The school provides a top-notch education which includes how to be a caring, articulate, confident human.

    One of the highlights of Saklan is the performing arts program. No, it’s not a performing arts school, but the quality of the musicals and concerts they put on each year would astonish you! Because it’s a small school, the performing arts teacher gets to work with the kids from preschool through 8th grade, and knows how to push them a little more each year.

    The teachers at Saklan, including an award-winning (female!) science teacher, dig deep into the material – way past the test taking level—to make learning interesting, fun, and exciting. I wish I could have gone there as a kid, I can’t imagine a better place to learn.
    We have been so happy with The Saklan School. Our son just joined this year - coming from public school. He is happy. We are happy. This was a really good decision for our family. The school has a great focus on academics but also on creativity, courage, compassion and kindness. We are really supportive of this school!
