School Advisory Council

The Julia R. Masterman Laboratory and Demonstration Student Advisory Council (SAC) is a collaborative, inclusive, and diverse partnership of parents, teachers, administrators, students, and community members that reviews school policy and practice on substantive issues and provides informed input and recommendations to support Masterman’s mission as a multicultural and welcoming community of learners engaging academically talented students in grades 5 – 12.

If you are interested in developing projects and initiatives that focus on supporting student curiosity, creativity, and academic achievement; improving school climate and culture; and strengthening the health and well-being of the community, please come out to a SAC meeting, open to all teachers, staff, parents/guardians, students, and community members.
