Why We Give

Saklan has been a wonderful, positive, nurturing, life changing, environment for our 8th grader, Blake, who has been attending Saklan since 6th grade. Blake transferred to Saklan in the October 2018 timeframe and it has been hands down the best decision for Blake and our family. The teachers, faculty and administration made the transition to Saklan seamless and in a short few months, Blake was thriving in school. The teachers are dedicated, motivating, encouraging, nurturing, instill discipline, and the coursework is adequately challenging. Blake is always eager to go to school and I am confident his middle school experience at Saklan has laid a strong foundation and prepared him for high school, college and beyond. I sat through the graduation ceremony of the 8th grade class in 2019, where teachers pay a tribute to each student, and there wasn’t a dry eye in the room. Through the course of the ceremony, it was evident due to the small school size, caliber of the faculty, and culture of the school, Saklan teachers become intimately familiar with a student’s personality, strengths, opportunities for improvement, progress, growth and maturity, and provide a strong, positive influence. The student population is very diverse and there are several opportunities students can participate in without judgement or barriers that might be a factor at a larger middle school, such as the school play and concerts. We are very grateful to be part of the Saklan community and thrilled to support the Saklan Annual Giving Fund.
