What Our Parents Say

My child has been attending SSA for three years and all I can say is that this school has been an inspiration for my child to reach his goals and to keep trying. My child has learned and taken interest in subjects he never took interest in before.

We have found the administration and the teachers very supportive and receptive to parental input. There are students from all different ethnic backgrounds and walks of life at this school and there is a general feeling of tolerance and respect among staff and students.

This school is safe, nurturing, diverse and has great teachers and staff. The teachers at the school are very encouraging, they push the kids to reach their potential. This school is extremely challenging and the teachers are highly qualified and very good. They have very high standards which most students will rise to.
