SAS Class of 2011
Franklin W. Olin College of Engineering

I have really enjoyed my time at SAS. The education that I have received will help me in the future, both in college and in life. For people thinking about attending SAS, the experience of being able to take college classes along with the advanced placement courses is wonderful. These classes are helpful and put us ahead of other people in our class. The best thing about SAS is the environment. The teachers are caring and fun and the students all get along. Unlike most schools where students are competitive and do not want other people to succeed, the students at SAS form a community that encourages people to help each other strive. I believe that this school has helped me get to where I am and get into such amazing schools.
