    "It is truly a pleasure to see our daughter leave each morning for SA motivated, happy to be going, and enjoying every aspect of her experience there. The top quality teaching and nurturing that goes on there is matched by the quality of the physical resources made available to the students. We recommend the school highly."

    "My son is a senior at SA, and it has exceeded my expectations on every level, starting with a superb, committed faculty, continuing with an outstanding head of school, amazing enrichment programs--including a 2-week mid-year break called Intersession--grade level retreats, the best performance arts program in the county and a terrific sports program for all levels of player. I absolutely love this school and believe it has helped my son become the very best he can be, ready for college (excellent, one-on-one college counseling in junior/senior year). The negative comments do not seem to ring true...the only reason not to go to this school is if your child wants a larger school experience with football games, etc."

    "Sonoma Academy looks at the whole child when it comes to education. The teachers are so excited to be there, that it overflows onto the students as well. It combines high academic college prep, with whole child, holistic education! The best of both to educate our future leaders, sending our kids out to be prepared for their next stage in life. I could not be more pleased, each day it only gets better and better not only for our child, but for the whole family!"

    "We are a new family to Sonoma Academy, and we are so grateful for the individual attention our (freshman) daughter receives from her teachers. The classes are small, the teachers are invigorated and inspiring; they love to teach and it shows. They truly see each child as a valued individual and tailor the instruction and guidance toward that particular child, whatever she may need. If your child has a special interest or talent, teachers try to incorporate it into lessons and allow the child to express it. The strong emphasis on fine and performing arts is one of the reasons we chose SA, as well as their focus on international culture. Our daughter has not always loved school and she did not have perfect grades before coming to SA, so don't let that stop you from applying - they will see the special qualities that make your child an outstanding overall individual and they foster those strengths while helping to develop other areas. Our daughter loves school and she is getting great grades. I thank the teachers and the supportive administration for that. We couldn't be happier that we chose SA."

    "SA is a wonderful alternative to the rat race of our local public schools. I have one child who graduated from the school, and another who is a senior this year. The teachers are inspiring, and the school's community is a very important part of the experience. Some of the teachers and some of the kids are incredibly creative and talented, and it rubs off on everyone else. While the academic workload is much less than that in our local public high school, the level of instruction is at least as high, and the focus on quality rather than quantity of work allows the students more time to explore other interests. The administration communicates well and often, and is always available for discussion. Our experience has been nothing short of wonderful. Another aspect of the school that I don't see in any other reviews is the college admission counseling program. David Rion, who directs this program, is outstanding. He helps the students optimize their chances of getting into schools that will be a good fit, while making sure they keep the whole process in perspective."
