Deciding to transfer to SAS was one of the best decisions I ever made. The education I received at this school has been superb and has broadened my mind. Because of the plethora of classes Miami Dade College offers, I have been able to take classes not available at a traditional high school, including Marketing, Human Nutrition, Business Law, and Theatre Appreciation.

Students feel a sense of independence and what college is like from being on the college campus. We are able to participate in collegiate activities and see our professors during their office hours, which helps us prepare for our future studies at other institutions.

The smaller high school classes has also been very beneficial as our teachers are able to spend more one-on-one time with us in class and in their office. Our independent study time is very useful as we study and work on homework while also receiving help from teachers and other students. Many students, including myself, really appreciate this aspect of SAS.

These past two years have been demanding and rigorous, but also while being beneficial and fun. I am glad I chose SAS.
