Welcome to Sussex Academy Elementary School!

One of the things that sets Sussex Academy Elementary (SAES) apart is the way we use our campus.

Located at the edge of the Redden State Forest, SAES campus is an ecological treasure, with two ponds, trails with five family fitness stations, a vegetable garden, a greenhouse, three goats, a sheep, and chickens. Our students in kindergarten - 5th grade participate in environmental science class once a week throughout the year in addition to their regular science classes. Our campus encourages us to incorporate a nature-centered, hands-on curriculum for our students.
