    SFT is a small school with a BIG heart. The staff obviously cares about all students and most parents work really hard to be involved. The principal knows the students and is in constant motion throughout the school. Everyone (students and parents) can participate in activities! The students represent the real world and are kind to each other! SFT has a strong sense of community which is important for kids to feel they belong and are accountable.
