SAS is not just one of the best high schools in the state of Florida, but it is also home for a very diverse group of students that have one thing in common, getting an education and succeeding in life. At SAS it does not matter where you are from, if you are good to your classmates, teachers and counselors, you will find a friend in every single person you approach. Yes, "It takes courage" to be part of the SAS family, but if you have made it to this point where you are preparing yourself to become a White Tiger or maybe you are one already, you are more than capable of succeeding. Don't give up! Make not just one teacher your favorite but make all of your teachers a favorite. They will always be glad to help you in everything you need. Just remember that success is not an easy thing to accomplish but it is just a matter of how bad you want it. You have to remain persistent. Take me as an example, with only five years of being in this country and English being my second language, I am more than proud to say that I graduated with a high school SAS diploma and a two year Associate of Arts Degree from Miami Dade College. I did all of this at the age of 17 while maintaining a part-time job thanks to the supportive SAS family I found here. Attending SAS was definitely the best decision I could have ever made.
