I would rate this school a zero. seriously considering transferring my child out.
My daughter goes to this school & she needs a bit of a push.She takes tests once a week and receives a lot of help.
Never coming back! Im glad to be gone from everything
I come from a long line of Sahs graduates (dating back almost 50 years). When I graduated from Sahs (late 90's) I always looked forward to my girls attending as well. My oldest went to pre-k and I loved the teacher (Ms. O'Neill) she was extremely good with the kids and lover her students. We were sad to see her go. Now in K I've noticed a lot of issues with the school. One is they are beyond over-crowded. 27+ kids to a class with ONE teacher and a shared aide between two classes his just horrible. The school is using accelerated reader programs which in my opinion forces kids to read. What happened to reading being enjoyable? A kindergarten child should not be forced to read to meet star points. Children should enjoy stories, not rush through them to take a test. My daughter loved reading until this program. Now she sees it as a chore. Sahs has gone down the drain. They have way to many kids, teachers dont care and yes I've spoken to the principle who doesn't seem to care either. As much as I loved this neighborhood growing up I can not wait to move away before it drags my children down and dont even get me started on the lack of help for special ED kids. Its a joke!
