Within my first week at School for Advanced Studies, I felt more comfortable and cared for among the teachers and staff than I had in any other school I had previously attended.  The exposure to a number of different college classes and professors along with independently registering for classes has prepared me for college more than any AP course or dual enrollment class. SAS allowed me to venture beyond a private school experience, make friends that will last a lifetime, and connect with teachers I will never forget. I thank all SAS administration and faculty that has put in the hard work and effort to make my two last years of high school at School for Advanced Studies a heartwarming and amazing experience that I will never forget. Go White Tigers!
