My son attended high school here and my daughter is in her junior year. We chose SRS due to the smaller class size and the quality of the teachers. My daughter will gripe sometimes about the school being too small, but then she raves on about her great teachers. Some have PhDs and are true experts in their fields, others are intelligent and passionate about getting these kids ready for college. My son, who thought he was a very average student, was shocked when he arrived to college to discover he was more than prepared and actually took upper level classes in his first year of college. Times are tough right now, but I'm in awe of how much SRS teachers are trying to help students find comfort in their new online classes. I could not have asked for any more. As in any school, there are frustrating moments, thankfully those are far and few between!

My husband and I never really thought a private/independent school was a path we would choose for our kids but we are so happy that we decided to check out Sage Ridge a few years ago. We are now midway through our 4th year at the school with both of our children enrolled in middle school. Our kids are happy, academically challenged, and have found a new group of peers through the theater program. Truth be told, there were a couple of bumpy years with changes in administration and faculty but the 2019-2020 school year has so far been smooth sailing. My kids have found good friends, supportive teachers, and are comfortable being themselves. As a parent I feel heard, and I have found many opportunities to be involved.
