Sandhill Elementary has a very kind, caring, and helpful staff. The daily communication from teacher to parents through notes in the calendar binder is very effective.

Sandhill is an A+ in my book!!! Most of the teachers and staff at Sandhill are wonderful, however, there are a few not so great(and not so friendly). The office and lunch staff know a lot of the students' by name. This is a school with a high poverty rate and yet maintains an "A" grade, I think that says a lot. My son is excelling in school and I have no doubt it's because he has excellent teachers, a great principal, and an awesome support staff.

This is an awesome school... It is almost like private school but free...my second grader is in a clasroom with 12 kids.... my kindergardener has 17 kids and an aid in the room...my fifth grade has 23 kids but two teachers that's what I said two teachers... they are excelling... The school gives very clear dirrections on how to help your child achieve... the staff is incredible... the office staff knows all the kid's names... their safety procedures for dropping off and picking up is first rate... The school is rated an A school... where 200 out of 200 preschoolers achieved the ready for reading program...look at the facts scores, way above the rest of Polk and at the top of Florida schools... I came from up North where the school are supposedly better but this school is way better... The rest of the country needs to follow their plans for a better community... and for you racist, this is a color blind community where everyone is accepted. God, family values, and politeness are extremely important to this area.

My kids transfered here from Medulla elementary in Lakeland. I have to say their grades improved and the things they were learning was amazing. I have to say that Mrs. Pennington is a wonderful and amazing teacher.

I enrolled my girls here and I have to say, Mrs. Konemann is one of there best teachers. My youngest daughter has health problems and the entire staff has been so wonderful to our entire family. I could not ask for a more devoted school, not just to her but to all of there children.

I am very happy to write about two of the best teacher that my kids have in this school. Mrs. Malfa and Mrs. Chouinard , they work really hard with the kids to make sure that they learn. They are amazing teachers and amazing persons. This school need more teachers like them.

I am writing this because I absolutely love my child's teacher! Mrs. Malfa is an asset to any school. Over the course of the year my daughter has turned her poor grades around to excellent ones. She is a teacher who pushes the students to excel and it pays. She is amazing and if you send your child here ask for her! As far as the grounds, they are well maintained. Some of the teachers aren't so amazing though so you need to make sure you weed out the good and bad ones. School is a 3 out of 5 in my book. Mrs. Malfa... 5 out of 5!

This school has given me nothing but problems! My child is a white male which is a minority in this school. There is more Hispanics which means my son has to put up with the teacher having to translate half of the day. This leaves to have to work on his own and his grades have dropped. The Principal is new and I don't know much about her, but overall I am not satisfied with the staff, area and the other students.

The school is ok but the neighborhood it is in leaves much to be desired.

My child has attended 4 years at this school. She has always done very well. We have had great teachers. She is an 'A' student, not just because she is smart, but because her teachers have pushed her to excel. She is white, female, which is the minority at this school. The parent involvement is poor because of a language barrier. The principle is new, I don't know much about her. The Assistant Principle has been when the school for probably the school's begining. The school is only 4 years old. The assistant principle is sometimes gruff, but I believe she has the best interest of the children in mind while in turn trying to abide by the Polk County School Board standards. Overall, we have been well pleased.
