    Saghalie Middle School has gone under great transformation with new administrative leadership and vision through a small-schools approach with admin at each grade-level. A school-wide integrated STEM approach with one-to-one technology through the use of Learnpads keeps students engaged and challenged. The school staff is focusing on 4 major school goals and is tracking the positive impact on student learning. Many engaging electives are offered and many courses offer high school credit to challenge students. The staff contacts families on a regular-basis and is committed to meeting students' needs. MANY after school clubs activities and sports are offered to students. Students may participate in Spring Intercession and Summer School for FREE! Many community partnerships have been developed to support the whole child. Please contact us with questions or for a tour of the school!

    This is my son's second year at this school and we are extremely happy with the caring teachers and office administration. Student participation in some sports is lower than we would like but overall they have excellent programs. The only opportunity for growth I can see with this school is I wish the children were a little more academically challenged. My son is pretty smart and seems to breeze through the classes. Overall we are very pleased and my son has had no problems interacting with other children.

    I've had 2 children attend Saghali Middle school. For the most part the teachers are caring. I especially love the office staff and the counselor Ms MacDonald. Ms Macdonald will care for your child as if he/she is her own. The music teacher is great! Although in the past activities at the school were poorly organized. I'm happy with saghali as are my kids.
