SAS has meant the world to me and more because it has enabled me to pursue a multitude of experiences not normally found in a typical high school.

At SAS I participated in mock trial, completed internship at a "makerspace" and a engineering firm, and participated in student government as class treasurer. These experiences have given me different perspectives and insights into different fields so that I could make a sounder decision as to what I planned on studying in the future.

This variety of experiences that I have had was only made possible through the freedom and responsibility that the SAS environment offers. I was able to utilize my time wisely and efficiently towards many goals including completing my Associate’s Degree with Miami Dade College. This also allowed me to pursue high-powered model rocketry, founding the Model Rocketry Club, and participating in other STEM oriented clubs. Responsible use of freedom has been critical to my success at SAS.

Equally critical to my accomplishments at SAS has been the environment that students and teachers provide. The teachers are unimaginably well versed in their subject areas and are always ready to assist if the need arises. They are also very friendly and it is not unusual to find a student in an amicable discussion or debate. The student community is also very supportive as peers are always helping each other in every occasion possible while also promoting achievement in others.

Ultimately, SAS has been my home and has allowed me to thrive during my two years in a way unimaginable anywhere else.
