Sage Canyon is beautiful and has an excellent parent/student population. Since its opening, I have not liked the "project focused" approach to learning. I am thrilled to have new leadership in place as I feel it is long overdue. My only disappointment is that the previous leadership is at the local middle school. God help us!!!
