We absolutely love this school! Our daughter is currently in 7th grade and has been attending SSES since the 4th grade. Their curriculum is outstanding. We have toured and researched other schools and realized that you cannot get the curriculum that is offered here at SSES in other schools. The teachers are well educated, class sizes are kept small, they encourage kids to do sports and stay active and allow kids the opportunity to explore their options and grow as individuals through their academic programs, extracurricular activities, and their athletics programs. The campus is stunning and allows for a peaceful environment to learn and grow. We are very thankful to the staff, faculty, and families at SSES.
