Parent Testimonials


Tap & Clap Program

Mayrig & Me Program


"I love that SSAES balances a challenging curriculum with small class sizes and attentive, nurturing teachers. The fact that my children have made close friends and receive an Armenian education is icing on the cake!"

"What I love most about SSAES is the warm, nurturing environment created by the teachers, Director, and Principal. I feel that they truly care about my daughter and her achievements. My daughter is not fluent in Armenian and I have felt that this has not been a barrier in her education; to the contrary, she has been enthusiastic about learning a new language. This stems from the thoughtful and encouraging manner in which her teachers interact and teach her. At this time, there is no other place that mirrors what SSAES can provide my daughter."
