Some comments from one of our Parents’ about Sagewood Preparatory….

“My son has been at Sagewood for 5 years now, he started in the Pre-Primary. My son is a very gentle soul and I was looking for a school where he would be accepted as an individual and be nurtured and loved for who he was. The small classes and passionate teaching staff really brought my son out of his shell. He is now excelling in all he does. Even when we have hit a speed bump the teachers and staff have been available to me and supported me through it all. I feel secure in the knowledge that my child is getting the best education and when they say we educate the whole child they really mean it.  All areas are developed and nurtured, whether academic, sports, arts and culture or other activities.Everybody has strengths and all are taken into account.”

Sagewood is a united and diverse school—a true reflection of how all children should learn to interact. Our learners have a distinct feeling of belonging.  A community built on family values from all cultures. Building a nation through education is our passion!
