We've been SST parents for two years and have been pleasantly surprised by the rigorous curriculum, attentive teachers, and passionate administration. I've never felt more confident that my children were getting the best educational experience available as part of the SST school system.

I have had a child at SST from grades 6th through 12th, and have been very happy with our school experience. Great academics, great emphasis on preparation for college, and a friendly devoted faculty. We''ve loved SST and believe it to be the best school in our area. They also do a great job with AP exam prep and SAT prep. They take kids on tours of college campuses and bring college admissions staff to campus to speak. Definitely a place where academics are placed first.
