    "Withdrew my child from this school in he middle of the year due to lack of communication with one of the teachers. This school has a lot of clicks and I have seen a lot of bullying going on with nothing being done about it. My child felt like he wasn't being heard or getting the help he needed from the staff. And I tried to intervene (I have the emails to prove it).... promises, promises....and nothing ever got resolved. This school is on a block schedule so parent beware... if you change schools in the middle of the year and go to a school that has a regular schedule, your child will have to make up some classes.... uniforms were hard to come by. In a nutshell.. LACK OF STAFF COMMUNICATION BETWEEN STUDENT, TEACHER & PARENT. NO DISCIPLINE (TEACHERS DON'T CARE ABOUT STUDENTS HAZING OTHER STUDENTS). AND BTW... THEY HAVE ABOUT 20 MICROWAVES FOR LUNCH TIME!!!! Wanted this school to be what we were told during the tour and it wasn't... not from day one. Send your child elsewhere."

    "We are proud of the accomplishments our son is making since starting the Sarasota Military Academy. He is learning skills that are giving him an excellent foundation to becoming a respectful and successful adult. The curriculum has proven to be just challenging enough that to get great grades he must make the effort but it is not so hard that he is overwhelmed and gives up. The teachers communicate the path to successful completion of the course right at the beginning and through the parent/student portal he can see how each test, quiz, homework assignment, and in-class participation affects his grade, and sees the importance of good decision making! Thank you SMA!"

    "I am currently enrolled at Sarasota Military Academy ad before you send your son or daughter there you may want to consider a few things first. I don't think there is another school on earth that has such unqualified teachers who's respect belittles that of all students that dare to ask questions about the curriculum. They say they support the values of our country but as a student I feel as if I am part of a communist public school. Each day I leave school I question my as a person and my decision making skills for ever attending such a school."

    "The Sarasota Military Academy is a state rated "A" school with an emerging IB program. 96% of our graduates go on to college. We have the finest young people on the planet and we have recent graduates at every single U.S. Military Academy. SMA has just completed its 2nd brand new classroom building and we plan to start our middle school program in August of 2014. Our instructional program is pre-college with a strong emphasis on math and Science. Nearly 30% of last year's graduating class earned their A.A. degree before they graduated high school. There are approximately 900 cadets about 50% boys and girls. Visit our website: sarasotamilitaryacademy.com for more details."

    "You will not find a better school in the state. Make sure you get your tour and get registered soon because once you see how much this school will benefit your child you will want them in yesterday. Our Daughter was lucky enough to get in and she is doing great. I can't say enough good things about this school. They do what they say they will and that's refreshing in today's world."
