Phenomenal! I have seen my oldest through elementary and have two other ones still there and we have only had wonderful experiences, one teacher amazes me more than the other - they are all great! We have a range of learners, quite brilliant and somewhat struggling but the support system is there and ...  Read more

I am amazed that my daughter is bringing home really advanced work from her kindergarten class. It's a full day program, and the kids seem to be hard at work! It's so different from when I was younger, and there was quite a bit more time for play. But I can't complain---my daughter is writing in full ...  Read more

As a parent of children at SSES, I can't help but find some reviews to be shocking.The administration appears to be professional and communicative, frequently sending out email updates and other reminders, and encouraging parents to be involved. The teachers my children have are very professional and ...  Read more

I think overall the school is great in terms of the arts and technology however I agree with the other parents when it comes to advanced children.

Imagine that! The school's consistant superior test results speak for themselves. ...  Read more

This school is not equipped to be able to foster gifted children. We tried kindergarten and the teacher had no idea how to work with my child to foster his abilities and when the principal promised extra enrichment work none was given. There was no teacher support. Also my sons teacher indicated that ...  Read more

I am the parent of a gifted student and I had a very unsatisfactory experience with the school. They not only fail to develop these children in the classroom, they seem unequipped to handle them in socially appropriate ways. The teachers and administration not only lack the desire to address these ...  Read more

I have mixed feelings about the school but feel like my kids have been pretty well served there, in particular because of some excellent teachers and in particular the great music teachers and wonderful facility. However, I agree that the administration is weak, the principal is a very poor communicator, ...  Read more

Given that SSES does NOT have a T.A.G. program, this school is really only for the middle to lower tier students. They have plenty of aids and programming for the lower tier and special needs school, but nothing for the kds on the other end of the spectrum. As a result, many of these kids are going to ...  Read more
