The Sayre Difference
Experience a School That Truly Knows You. The continuity of the Sayre experience, which nurtures a child from preschool all the way through high school, enables Sayre to continually assess and enhance each student’s day-to-day and year-to-year cognitive and emotional development, meticulously refine how best to personalize and apply diverse school resources to their needs, and individually build meaningful and long-term partnerships with students and parents alike.
Learn to Achieve. Sayre class sizes are carefully managed, maximizing a student’s one-on-one time with teachers so that together they can recognize and revel in strengths, focus and improve on challenges, and gradually but methodically build a student’s self-confidence through achievement, whether that means finally understanding French verb conjugations – bien fait! – or attaining national recognition as an AP Scholar.
Think for Yourself. Beyond mastering a challenging curriculum in an environment of high standards and even higher expectations, Sayre students learn to think for themselves, even if their ideas differ from the norm, and they learn to speak for themselves, even when others remain silent, ultimately leading to the formation of a young adult who not only knows the right answers, but has the personal character to ask the right questions.
Transform Lexington Into Your Classroom. As the only PK-12 school located in the heart of downtown Lexington, Sayre seamlessly melds the School’s progressive learning environment with the cultural resources of the surrounding cityscape, opening wide students’ hearts and minds through only-in-the-city experiences like performing a school musical in an iconic theatre, holding a mock trial in a real federal courthouse, or learning firsthand about environmental sustainability through planting and harvesting fresh food in a community garden.
Discover Something Unexpected. Sayre actively encourages each student to step across their self-imposed boundaries and engage in one or more of the School’s growing number of clubs, councils, societies and athletic teams, so that maybe – just maybe – they might unexpectedly discover something new and wonderful about their world, their classmates, or about themselves.
Make Your Mark. Whether or not they choose to follow a path similar to past alumni and become a national leader for equal rights, a Nobel Prize winner, an educational innovator, or even a Hollywood actor, each young man and woman leaves Sayre empowered to make his/her own unique and indelible mark. No matter their pursuit, no matter how famed or how humble, the world is sure to be better for it.
