This is a community school that can not succeed with out parents doing their part. It's sad, the parents of the students who attend this school are not involved. My daughter is a Spe. Ed 5th grader at Sands, and is doing well, and has made progress since her enrollment late September. She has a great teacher who has zero tolerance for ignorance, bullying, or unkind children in classroom. Her teacher is dedicated to ensuring no one will steal my child's education, not on her watch. Parents can not rely solely on the school to educate their children or child. Learning does not end when the bell rings at 3:00. It starts at home. Get off your butts, parent your kids people. Why should my child's learning be disrupted by a student that has no home training, and severe behavioral issues. Parent you kids, and stop bling the school for lazy parents who don't want to do their job. This a a good school that can be a great school with the help of the parents making sure their kids NOT the one disrupting my child's learning process. The teachers great, Administration, awesome and invested in kids. Mr. Heredia, doing his best with what he has, and the cards he has been dealt.

This school is just horrible. When they had principal Nesmith there was a feeling of success. However, with the dude they have now, such a joke. That school is one of the worst schools in Hartford. The children are being set up for failure. I do not think the administrators know what they are doing. The assistant is doing her best but that dude is doing nothing but talking on PA system day long. I feel very sorry for the children.

Sand Elementary School has an incredible staff this year that truly strives to better the lives of the children. Though the children in this area are categorized in the lower socio-economic bracket, the faculty and staff work hard to empower the children to achieve whatever they set their minds to. Though Sand Elementary has been one of the lowest performing schools in the area, this year the school has revamped their system in hopes to improve their ratings. Better equipment and facilities would tremendously aide them in the endeavor to improve their testing scores and student achievement levels.
