Es ist nicht nur die Schule, sondern das gesamte gesellschaftliche und soziale Umfeld, dass den Reiz von SAGA ausmacht.

Gregor Tatsios, SAGA Alumni parent

We chose SAGA because of the balance between language immersion, a curriculum based approach and the obvious attention to detail. We have not yet been disappointed!

Stacey Wiggins, Current SAGA Elementary parent

...the school is so much more than "just a" German immersion school. SAGA feels like an extension of our family and is such a creative, healthy, loving, caring, fun and motivating place for my daughter.
