Ever wondered what it's like to be a crash-test dummy? Well, buckle up because in this episode of our Peek Into series, we're diving headfirst into the thrilling world of collision physics.

Meet Takeshi K., a senior who does more than just ace his exams. He’s also a semi-pro skateboarder - no big deal, right? He started competing against teens and adults when he was still in elementary school and went on to get sponsored. Now, we're not claiming to be the wind beneath his skateboard, but we've never been ones to clip wings either. We ensure our students don't have to choose between their passion and their education. Because at SAS, algebra and kickflips coexist seamlessly.
