We entered SFS in 1st grade. The Admissions process impressed us in that the communication was open, and the procedure was transparent.

Our daughter just started at SFS and we couldn't be happier. The school is steeped in tradition and has a strong vision for the future. Our daughter has been very happy with her teachers and her new friends. We've felt very connected to the school through conferences, get-togethers, pot-lucks and visits.
