I have found the academic load to be a bit rigorous, but the results, fantastic!

I have been in Arizona for 4 years. It took 3.5 yrs to find a school which offered quality education, reasonable classroom sizes (24 students on average), educators who are teachers - not just doing their job. We have 2 children in school currently - 5th and 1st. They are doing well and my husband ...  Read more

Maybe a notch below average here or there. Students get basics but do not have access to art or music room or labs. Some classrooms have older computers that may limit media options.

This school is average on every account. Nothing out of the ordinary. That is about it.

I will forever sing STA's praises to any and all interested parties. Our son is now in first grade and loving every minute of it. Last year his kindegarden teacher was able to uncover his academic strengths and defecits with pin-point accuracy. While the outside tutoring meant more out of pocket my partner ...  Read more

STA has been a great experience for our children and family. We currently have a child in the 1st grade class and can not be more pleased with the education to this point. The Kindergarten teacher has done a wonderful job preparing these children for the 1st grade. It's truly amazing how children ...  Read more

2009 is a new year and we can't say enough good things about STA. Last year was a frustrating waste of time and money. This year our child is reading, thriving and happy. The 1st grade teacher is amazing! The perfect example of a committed, quality teacher. Her extensive early education background is ...  Read more
