Most nurturing environment for your child. And the most amazing college counseling you could imagine. Nothing but praise for my children's experience from 1st grade-high school.
If the school would do away with this all together, it would be a 5-star school. However, as long as money trumps all else and the hard work of high-achieving students is ignored to preserve the donations and appeasement of the average student's family, it is difficult to give more than 2 stars. In short, I wish the school valued honesty and hard work more than it does.
Please pay attention to this review. Unless you went to school there yourself, or are wealthy enough for your child to fit in, run far away from this school! I cannot deny the education is thorough and rigorous, but the environment is too TOXIC for it to be worth the price tag. The environment is cutthroat, many students have been there for their whole school life and it is impossible for any newcomer to find a place. Also, if your student values honesty or fairness, this is not the place. He/she will not get it from either the staff or students. The administration is difficult to deal with, all greedy and petty politics. This culture is modeled for the students, and there is no sense of community or camaraderie. The few good staff and students are hidden gems, but toe the line over all. Again, avoid Sayre if you value your children.
Education is good but there is an unfortunate amount of subjectivity and favoritism among (many of) the staff and faculty toward certain students/families. If you are a family that works hard to send your child there and cannot afford to donate above the high tuition cost, your child will always fall behind the one whose family does, even if his academics are superior. He will never be acknowledged; he will never be rewarded. He will lose to the average student because the value of the dollar outweighs the performance level of the student(s). It results in a system of dishonesty.
One of the oldest private schools in Lexington area. Highly educated teachers, though not all have teaching certification.
All of the staff contributes to an excellent experience and education at Sayre. They educate the children with real world experiences and demonstrate kindness and compassion everyday. I have no doubt my daughter is getting a priceless educational experience at Sayre.
