Sandalwood has suffered from bad PR for years but is truly an amazing school! My student had the choice between 3 different schools & choose Sandalwood because of it's great programs, staff, teachers & students. Sandalwood has a program to fit every student and us supported by outstanding teachers & administrative staff. The principal is top notch, as are the counselors, & guidance people. I would highly recommend Sandalwood to any parent or student looking for a challenging, diverse, fun & active high school experience!

5 star school. Mrs Schultz, the Principal, is caring and helpful. The school staff are friendly and helpful. Students are some of the sweetest Ive come across. Never had to open a door, boys jump to get them. This is a great school. The Early College program allows you to graduate high school with an AA, at no cost .

This is our daughter's senior year and couldn't be happier! Never had any problems until this year. VERY unorganized & no one seems to want to help get questions answered re: schedules, dual enrollment, etc. Orientation- a joke, waited in line for hours, finally had to leave due to work, no one there to answer questions or to stop kids from cutting in lines in front of those waiting. Took until mid-October to finally get schedule straight! Worst of all, seniors go in to try to take care of things -they are treated like idiots & nothing is done until a parent intervenes. WHY? You are supposed to be preparing students for the world, how about helping them to get their issues resolved without mom or dad having to come in to deal with every little thing. Front office staff lax & indifferent, Guidance a little better but still could use some social skills. Come on Sandalwood, get it together! You are losing what was a great reputation.

This is the most unorganized mess I have ever seen. No one communicates. The staff just seem to be moving along aimlessly with no regard to the welfare of the kids. I have visited the office three times to find out about schedules for events and always have to go through several channels to get an answer and sometimes, they will just completely ignore me standing at the desk. Yesterday was the orientation for the group my son will be attending for his senior year. They waited in line for three hours and no one knew the answer to any of their questions. Kids came in and cut in the lines and were obnoxious and no one was there to stop this. My son found one of his teachers from two years past who assisted him but his schedule is still messed up. Come on Sandalwood, the staff really needs to get it together especially at the front office. I went up last year to find out about the date for prom and one woman was just sitting there filing her nails completely oblivious....my son says they treat the students the same way. It's ridiculous.

I am a Senior at Sandalwood High and my experience here with the students and teachers are great but with the guidance counselors, bad. The guidance counselors here are not helpful and are sometimes rude. I feel intimidated by them and look at me as if I am an idiot and is wasting their time. The teachers on the other hand are fun, helpful and love to teach. Only a few are unhelpful to students and will be fired. The clubs are fun, and although I only started to join clubs during my Senior year, i find all enjoyable except the NHS society. That club is extremely easy to get into so much that all you need to do is LIE. So far this year we have about 90 members. The notifications for the meetings are somewhat last minute, and I have not been to a meeting yet so far this year. The Senior events are fun, and despite all the hard classes we need to take to make our college applications appealing, I believe I am having a lot of fun. I am stressed out a lot from thoughts of college, my job, the money and schoolwork, but some of my teachers are very understanding and helpful. The school is disorganized, but I feel that it's still a great school to go to.

I love this school, my coworkers, and students. The culture is fabulous. As with any large school, students who go looking for trouble will find it...but for the most part there is so much going on that students can find their place easily.

Wow, this school has made an incredible tranformation in the past several years!! I was truly hesitant about my daughter attending Sandalwood, however, it has been a blessing. The administration & faculty have really gone the extra mile to make changes, and they have succeeded. This school earned an "A" for 2009-10, up from a "C". I think that says a lot. They also have the Early College High School program, which is awesome. For students who are motivated and want to get ahead or just need that extra challenge, it is a great program, and what parent would complain about their child earning their AA degree free of charge!! Sandalwood has had a bad reputation for a long time, but that is all talk..this is a great school.

I am a senior at Sandalwood. Graduating class of 2011. Of course I am an average student that will complain about my teachers & the students there, but in reality the school is a very good school. Unfortunatly I waited until my senior year to take advantage of the vigorous academic AP and honors courses & I also waited until my last year to participate in the ample amount of sports & activities offered by the school. I tell everyone this, if you plan on going to Sandalwood school is what you make of it. Take advantage of AVID, a college preparatory program, join the extracuriculars that are offered, & do not take your education for granted, do not get involved with the wrong crowd. People may choose to look down on Sandalwood, when realistically your child just needs to be smart enough not to do ingorant things & to get involved with the group of ignorance there, that is also found in every school. You can not keep your child in a protective bubble & be affraid to expose your child to "possible" threats. You should have raised your child better than that anyways. Oh yeah, & Sandalwood is now an A school. :) So it has drastically changed from what it used to be.

I have been very happy with my child's teachers, he loves them to death, they are very supportive and helpful. However, the administration at this particular school seems to be clueless. Its like the left foot doesn't talk to the right. It is extremely hard to get a straight answer out of anyone unless you go through 4 or 5 people first. Getting a response from the principal is almost impossible and the people that I have dealt with are often very rude. Also, having students answer the phones in the front office is just dumb since they never know the answers to any of your questions.

My child is involved in the AVID community and is very happy at Sandalwood. It is a large school, but the small learning communities help keep the kids in classes with students they know. The teachers are active and involved and keep good communication through letters and their personal websites. If your child chooses to get involved in one of the many programs available, they will likely have a better experience than if they did not. Budget cuts are hurting these teachers, so parent involvement is really important. Get involved in your child's education and you'll find that this school will meet any of your public school needs!

I'm a student at Sandalwood High and I have been going for three years now. Despite Sandalwood's previous record, Sandalwood is not a bad school. There are only specific students who cause commotion, and repeat it. I feel the past couple of years Sandalwood has done a fantastic job keeping problems at bay, and focusing on the saftey and education of it's students. I enjoy working with all of my teachers, and most of my classmates, and I can really tell that Sandalwood has what's best for their students in mind.

Sandalwood is not bad at all, I agree... As long as you as a parent are teaching your children who to hang around with and keep them focused on school work, all will go well. Just as with any school. My son loves it and he makes comments about how so and so helped him in class...it is wonderful seeing students helping other students. The Staff at Sandalwood are wonderful..

sandalwood is not as bad as what i expected. it's just that its crowded and each class is composed of 40+ students. i would say that the common problem the school have comes from the students. teachers do their best to teach the students but some of the students are being hard headed and stubborn. students hate their teachers because they give lots of homework but i don't see it as a reason to hate teachers. lastly, it's up to the students if they want to learn or not.

Good school despite all the negative old jargon. My son has attended Sandalwood for 3 years with no probems. If u teach your child to hang with the right people and stay responsible for his/her school work, all will go well. The teachers are awesome and willing to go out of their way to help out a student or a parent. Stop the negative talk give Sandalwood a chance....

People always talk down about Sandalwood. The things that people say have happened in the past, but in the last three years that I have attended (Senior, Class of 2009), the number of problems has significantly decreased. Everyone gets along, puts aside differences, and acts like a well-behaved student. This school is NOT the negative things that people say. I'm proud to be a Sandalwood Saint.

This school is about the worst Jacksonville has to offer. There's always a fight, an outburst, a riot somewhere on school campus. After my Sophomore year, I switched to Fletcher High to get away from the hot mess of Sandalwood and I am so happy I made the move. It was well worth it.

I am a student currently attending and entering my senior year. With the three years I've been attending here, I must say I love it. Sandalwood is a pretty good school. The best way to make sure your child has a good education there is to make sure they have good teacher (meet them). Also joining the AVID program or ROTC is a good idea.

I have gone to Sandalwood all of my high school life and i am now a senior. I am also in AFJROTC and i am one of the main leaders in the corps. I believe JROTC in Sandalwood is a thing that all students should participate in. When we hear about the bad reviews on Sandalwood we cringe and move on. But we need to understand that all schools have their trouble makers. Sandalwood's an amazing school. It is so diverse!!!

I have read a lot of the reviews and am happy to see that most people get over the stories they hear. My son is a freshman this year, in the AP classes and JRAFROTC program, he loves it. I read one parent say that deans, guidance etc were hard to get in touch with. I call nonsense on that, i have called and emailed each of his teachers often, they always respond, as does the guidance office, if you want your child to succeed you have to put forth effort as does the child. Sandalwood is a great school, I am happy that my kid is enjoying his time there

I'm a junior at Sandalwood High School and I take 4 AP classes. The teachers are great and the student body is much more diverse than any other school in Jacksonville, which, I believe, makes it the best school in Jacksonville. The classes are much more rigorous than in Stanton or Paxon because Sandalwood puts a lot of emphasis on the AP classes it has, whereas the other College Preparatory schools have so many AP courses that they don't put enough attention into improving each individual AP class. I don't know about the standard classes, because I have never taken any, but the Honors and AP program at Sandalwood are the best; top notch! And the horrible repute that Sandalwood has had for so long is mendacious, because of the neighborhood it's in. The administrators are very nice and helpful; they're like friends to the students.

My son entered the 9th grade this year at Sandlewood High School. My husband and I battled with whether we should let him attend this school or a private/magnet school. He insisted on Sandalwood for the great football team they have as he is an athlete. Once we received a letter inviting him to the Avid Program, we knew it would be a fine school. He is doing very well and I volunteer in the Avid program. We have met all his teachers and they are fine teachers. If your child is focused and you stay involved in his education and school...Sandlewood is a fine choice. There is good and bad in any school, and it really come down to what you preach in the home and your willingness as a parent to support the school and your child. Kudos to Sandlwood and it's staff.

I have a son that attends Sandalwood, I was a little concerned his freshman year because of all the horror stories that I had heard. But after seeing first hand, Sandalwood has got a bad rap for the past several years. It is time to give Sandalwood the credit they deserve. I would not think twice about sending my child to Sandalwood. As far as I am concerned from seeing first hand, they are a great school, they care about the students and that is important. They dont judge by how much money you make like other schools in the area! Keep up the great work Sandalwood!

This school is to large, they do not keep up with their parent newsletter or with the web site info. If one grade has testing, many times they let the other grades go home. How is a parent to know if the school is out or in if we are receiving no notification. To top all of that kids get lost every day, not body lost but mind lost. Guidance does not have time to call all the kids in to talk with them about their future and help them plot a course, students even have a hard time getting to see guidance when they have a problem or issue. The Deans are no more help either, very negative, very curt with how they speak even to parents. I will not put my younger child in this school. I will sell my home and move if I have too!

I am a student at sandalwood high school and i believe it is a great school. At times there are fights and disruptions but what school doesn't have those kind of problems? I can't say that all the teachers there are great but the ones that have taught me are wonderful. They really do care about helping their students become successful. Although one thing that i dis-like about sandalwood is their food and their over pricing. Prices for any student activity should not be as high as they are, same with the food.

I know firsthand what Sandalwood is like. Being a student there myself, I have interacted with my peers, and have been taught by it's teachers. Being in a school with 3,000 others is hectic, but the only way to remedy that is to build a new school. Despite minor organizational issues, everything else that has constituted my years at Sandalwood have been enjoyable. The curriculum has been expanded to include more AP classes, and lacrosse has just been recently added to the list of extracurricular activities. Sandalwood is not a bad school. There are a plethora of wonderful students and teachers here, and they should be acknowledged for their effort, as opposed to being demeaned for their so-called 'mediocrity'. Everyone is making a genuine collective effort to take the school to new heights, and that is something that should be taken into consideration. Go Saints!

In the midst of a large school, quality is a concern yet my son got here the day before classes started and is doing well. I have had a few meetings with administration & staff to get to better understand the system they have set up. I don't know if the greek houses are my idea of making a school of over 3500 kids more manageable but it seems to be working. Extracurricular activities are not an issue just making the right choices is. Parental involvement is also encouraged although at this age its the kids that don't want the parental involvement which is still needed.

I am highly disappointed in Sandalwood. First of all, there are too many students to properly educate our children. Secondly, I have come to realize that all students are not treated the same. There are students who get punishment for things that other kids do not. During class there are numerous students walking around the halls without hall passes. Some are punished others are not. Don't get me wrong, this is not a race related bias. Personally, I believe that the security guards, who regulate the halls, allow some students to slide by without a pass for whatever reason and then other students are punished. There are wonderful teachers at Sandalwood and there are horrible ones just like anywhere else. I regret that it is the only neighborhood choice for my child. The principal is new so I hope that she can make positive changes.

Sandalwood in my opion has one of the best bands and choirs though you rairly hear from the choir now. The real problem with the school is the parents of the children who go there.

Too little staff, too little guidance, too little parent/teacher communication when issues are arising. I have really had to struggle, and my very bright boy is foundering because the public school system can't teach and guide our kids and won't go out of their way to communicate with parents when issues are coming up - until it's too late.

I'm a parent. My child attended Sandalwood for 6 months. I thank god I was able to get my child out of that school! After checking Sandalwood on the internet, I had a good picture of this school in my head. I was horrified when I brought my child for his 1st day & vowed to get him out of there. The internet information was so wrong. The kids are the ones who run that school. The teachers are not the brightest. There's 'no' homework. There have been many lockdowns & serious fights where security & teachers have been hurt. In January (2005)kids were running through the halls out of control. Students are allowed to leave school grounds during lunch. I am so glad my child is out of there.

I have attended Sandalwood High as well as several siblings. The school is very crowded! The hallways are cluttered and the classrooms are very very small. The new addition to the Freshman Inst. is a good idea for students who are not up to state educational standards, though this singles them out so everyone knows they are not as well educated. Extracurricular activities are limited currently from the choices in the past years. The crime, violence and other behavior of the students is high due to the overcrowding and limited funds for classes such as: art, music, drama, computer, and other interest specific courses. This school has gone down hill and is still sinking, send your child elsewhere!

Like many schools Sandalwood is overcrowded and was not looking forward to my kids attending it. However they have dealt pretty well with the constraints and they have some good leadership in house. The grounds and the bulding itself could use some work and are not the cleanest. They do offer a decent amount of extra curricular activities bu there are many students vying for spots. The average scores for SAT, FCAT and ACT are not very good but they do offer honors courses and advanced placement where the students do much better.

I believe that the standardized testing is about the most insane thing I have ever done. We students spend the entire year studying for F-cat, having information crammed down our throats specifically for the purpose of passing a test. The school has made it so that the students don't care anymore about what it is they are not learning, but we simply try to retain information so we can pass F-cat at the end of the year. I personally am tired of memorizing information for a test, and learning nothing. Plenty of people at this school can barely read, and if they can, then it is at a pace that a first grader would read at. Teach us something! Don't just make us memorize to pass one test!

My daughter was terrified at first because of rumors she has heard about the school, 6 months later and she doesn't feel the same way anymore. The school could use a new coat of paint on everything. And some more involvement for the students. But in all it's not a bad school.

This school needs much improvement. The only thing keeping my son afloat is my constant interventions. God help any child with non active parents. If you have a choice and funds, send your child to a private school.

I personally believe that it is a great school. But, if it had a little bit more student activities that the students could get involved in then there would be less problems and more fun for the parents and students.

We have been pleasantly surprised with public school.Our children went to parocial school and then public high school. All have been or are in honors and AP classes. They have done very well and are ready for college. It has also prepared them for what the world is really like - not the pristine world of 'private' school.
