    My children are happy there and progressing very well academically

    I beg to differ. Actually I'm not begging at all. I completely disagree. My daughter went to SSA for her kindergarten year and shall be returning for her 1st grade year. She learned many things and her teacher made learning fun. I for one would rather my children think of learning as a fun experience than to go through school as I did thinking that school was somewhere that I was unwelcome. My son will also be attending SSA this fall for their pre-k program. I love her teacher and the school leader as well as all the staff. They make the school a safe environment for learning. I never saw where this facility looked to be a 'dungeon'. this was obviously written by somebody that has little to no knowledge of this school.
