This school has really changed my life. I love it so much, and it has prepared me well for high school, and the staff and administration reply do get to know each student personally.

Science & Arts Academy is an amazing school. The teachers and staff are completely dedicated to their mission of teaching gifted children. I consider this the best grammar school in the country for gifted children. My son adores SAA and it is amazing watching him grow as a person and a student.

This school has been such a gift to us. They truly believe in and follow their mission in how they educate gifted children. The faculty and staff do a wonderful job of accepting each child where they are and nurturing them (and their family) as they grow.
