Sage Hill Experience: Samir has appreciated the support of peers, faculty and parents through all of his pursuits throughout high school. One incredible moment that he cherishes is a concert at his school featuring Samir's physics teacher. This teacher taught Samir for three years, and rocked the stage with his Beatles cover band. The senior class joined hands as they circled the stage and sang along to "Come Together." The whole experience summed up what it really means to be at Sage Hill School, to exist in an environment completely free of judgment, an environment where you are encouraged to be who you are, always.
