I am currently in my junior year of high school and receiving offers from schools such as Yale and Princeton as well as PAC-12 schools. I can attribute much of my success to the strong foundation I was given by SDCS in math, reading, writing, science and other enrichment courses. With the support of a great principal and caring teachers, I was able to achieve great success in and out of the classroom. At this time, I would like to thank Self Development schools for instilling valuable knowledge and helping me to be a lifelong learner.”
Teachers and staff under the direction of Dr. Majeed, the Principal, work tirelessly to meet all the needs of students well beyond academic related issues. My daughter completed 8th Grade this year, and I thank the school for laying the foundation for her upcoming high school education. In an IB program as a freshman, she is taking Advanced Chemistry, Advanced Geometry, Advanced World History, and Advanced English.
I feel this is a great environment for children to learn in, and I have used the tools I learned here throughout my educational career thus far. I am proud to say I have a 4.7 GPA and university with scholarships is an option for me. SDCS really does guide their students in the right direction. If this school is still around when I have children one day, I will definitely consider sending them here.
