  • Sayre Language Academy has made excellent improvements over the last 8 years. We have been very happy with our school choice when we moved to the neighborhood. Our oldest son graduated from Sayre last year and is now at Northside College Prep. Our two daughters are in 6th and 3rd grade and both have outstanding teachers. The Sayre community is strong and involved.

  • I love this school. It is awesome and I am very sad I have to go to high school next year and leave. The teachers are there to help with anything the work is challenging our minds. The fields(when i was younger) was fun and some were school related. You learn more than one new thing every day and the teacher prepare you for ISAT from the beginning of the school year to ISAT then they teacher the next grade work. Thats why we get high scores. Even the parents get involved. And the activities for the language you are learning are again educational and fun!
