Francesca MajlufMost would say that SAS is an ideal high school with successful alumni thanks to its academic rigor and statistics. After all, here at SAS students handle both AP and college classes at the same time, which makes them develop valuable time-management skills and discipline. However, my experience these past two years has proven to me that there's much more to SAS that makes it the optimum high school. Here, teachers challenged me to perform at my best, while continuing to shape my moral character. If a student's honesty or integrity ever comes into question, it is addressed. But the staff also shows concern and affection when it is most needed.My carefully-selected peers at SAS made me face competition like I hadn't faced in a long time. Here at SAS, every student has the ambition to succeed in life, and this common goal made us more than compatible with each other. We understood each other's struggles; we shared sleepless nights and cups of coffee. We celebrated each other's achievements like they were our own, and never failed to enjoy and fill the present moment with laughter. SAS provided me with something more important than an outstanding education: a group of people who encouraged me to excel as both a student and a human being; a family. I would never be where I am today if it had not been for SAS, and I will always carry the memories and knowledge I gained at SAS close to my heart.
