Just as education means different things to different people, each person experiences The Sage School in his or her own way. However, when you listen to the comments of current students, parents, teachers, and alumni, you’ll hear some common themes about what The Sage School has meant for them.
“The teachers are great at Sage because they always answer your questions. Also, at Sage it’s not always like ‘You can’t talk, you can’t talk’ – we have a lot of fun times, especially during homeroom. The best part about Sage is that there are no bullies.”
“Sage has small classes and the teachers challenge you by making you step outside of your comfort zone without fear of being ridiculed.”
“The Sage School takes the well being of our children seriously. There could never be enough “thank you’s” to cover our admiration toward everyone at Sage.
We’ll be paying a tearful ‘thank you’ on graduation day. We’ll be saying ‘thank you’ when they set foot on college campus. We’ll be saying ‘thank you’ when they land their dream job. We’ll be saying ‘thank you’ when they find the love of their lives. We’ll say ‘thank you’ when their own children find the opportunity to excel in a school just like Sage.
What it all comes down to is The Sage School believes, where we as parents have believed all along.”

“I continue to learn from more than just the classes at Sage. I learn from other students, the teachers, and my experiences, like travel.”
“Each student at Sage is completely his or her own person. Because of this, I feel completely comfortable in my own skin”
“The teachers in the Middle School have given me more independence, and because of this, I am able to learn how to get along on my own much better in life out of school.
“Many gifted students look for concrete answers. It’s wonderful to teach these students creative work – it helps them discover there isn’t always a right or wrong answer, not everything is black or white, and it’s okay to express yourself in new and different ways.”
