School Reviews

We could not be happier with our decision to switch to SACS. We have children prospering in both their preschool and grade school programs. The kids are appropriately challenged for where they are on their growth curve and continually feel supported on their educational journey. The teachers create a warm, trusting environment for the children to learn in and the energy at the school is contagious... you just want to be a part of it! On top of all that, children also develop value and moral frameworks by multiple service projects throughout the year; even in preschool, they learn the importance of helping others. It really is so much more than a school... it's a community we are proud to be a part of.
