Sappo School, one of Long Island's finest private schools, was established in 1994 and has been providing outstanding academic education with consistency throughout the years. Sappo School is a leader in private school education on Long Island and serves the community by making sure that students reach their fullest potential. Sappo School is a unique educational experience with over a 20 year legacy of preparing students for success in both college and career.
Sappo School is currently one of only seven non-religious Kindergarten through 12th Grade private schools on Long Island. In addition, Sappo maintains Regents approval, allowing Regents exams to be offered on site, and serves as an SAT testing center. Sappo School teachers are educative practitioners who are experts in all fields surrounding academic rigor and high achievement, delivered through Educative Holism. Students at Sappo School value the one on one approach we use in the classroom, while responding positively to the devoted efforts shown by their teachers.
Sappo School is a SHAPE supported college preparatory school designed for today’s student. What does this mean? Students of yesteryear needed factory style classes to prepare them for industry based careers. Today’s student needs to be prepared for much different career choices. A SHAPE school rounds out the student’s educative process teaching in student directed classes that address social, emotional, and academic growth. Cultural experiences further balance the need for each student to learn from the contributions made by those students who have paved the way before them. Each Sappo School graduate is fully prepared to become a meaningful member of society, able to contribute to the world around them with positivity. This allows for greater success and a stronger feeling of well-being throughout life. The student body benefits from and truly appreciates those who return to serve as mentors for current Sappo Students. .
Colleges love working with our graduates, who are willing to work hard and “stay the course”. Employers benefit from the results of a Sappo educated student for the same reason. Why? To “stay the course” is a phrase used to identify the soldier who will pursue toward a goal regardless of any obstacles or criticism. Using SHAPE Strategies the student is educated according to his or her learning style and personality type. Tolerance and a powerful Anti-bully theme prepare the student to handle future challenges that may arise no matter where they are and what they do. They face the future with confidence. Therefore, the Sappo educated student does not retreat when times get tough or challenges lay ahead. They are fully prepared to “stay the course”.
Sappo School prepares the regular education student for stronger Regents scores and college entrance performance, while stimulating the more advanced learner or gifted student. The special education student who is accepted to Sappo presents mild to moderate disabilities that are easily assimilated into focused, motivated, and peaceful inclusion. Students presenting aggressive and/or bullying behaviors are not accepted into our program, thus safety drives the student body toward unrestricted learning.
Sappo School is very happy to announce that we have finally secured a new, permanent location that will support our continued growth and our need for expansion. As you are aware in our current placement there is limited room and resources to provide all the amenities that our children deserve. This new building and location will enhance our program and benefit our current and future students.
As of September 1, 2014 our new address will be 40 Kings Park Road, Commack, NY 11725.
