Great school! Love the CAP program, my son is in his third year. The teachers and staff are all dedicated, giving their 100 % effort to create a great learning environment for middle schoolers. We are grateful for his experience there.

I've been going to SLA for 3 years and find it amazing school. There's great teachers who are cooperative and if you need the slightest help,they will be by your side. Each grade has a Honors Academy for students who over-achieve in school. There is a good variety of clubs to choose for 1st period. ...  Read more
