Sanders is not a good school, unless you have low standards for educating your child. The staff is lousy and there is no strong leadership at the school. I think the school could progress if parents, CCSD, the superintendent and the teachers had a vested interest in seeing the school succeed. The school receives Title 1 funds but new ways need to be discovered for utilization. Where we live now, schools like Sanders are being closed, teachers fired for lack of progress. I have high expectations for my children and Sanders cannot help them on their journey.

My child has been at this school since kindergarten and has had good teachers but they are faced with disciplining more than teaching. It's too bad more parents don't find it their responsibility to discipline at home; instead they expect the teachers to do it at school. This takes away from the education of the students who are disciplined. The communication home to the parents on the progress of your child is disappointing! My child only brings home graded school work with report cards because many kids don't bring it home to their parents. The teachers attach it to report cards to ensure parents are getting to it. This goes back to the involvement with the child by the parents at home. Parents who are involved are now punished. The lack of seeing graded school work during the semester is too bad because I have less of an idea how my child is really doing until his/her report card comes home. I am involved with his/her homework every night but how do I know he/she is really grasping the material if I don't see his/her graded homework come home?! I feel my child is safe, but I am not happy with the education level at this Title 1 school. Be very careful of Title 1 schools!

I'm a parent of formal 4 Sanders students and now have a kindergartener I can say there ifs a big change in the school from them til now. I believe it can get better if we receive more parent involvement. I'm going to give this school a try because I was tempted to take my daughter out but I'm going to take a stand as a parent and be the voice for this school we need more parent engagement please parents lets make our children school the best there is.

My child attended Sanders for 1 year - first grade. His teacher was great, and the special education staff was very attentive and professional. We ended up moving and my children are now enrolled in a better rated school, but as far as teacher-parent communication goes, I still prefer Sanders. Too bad there's no diversity and very little parent involvement.

Sanders is a great school with engaged administration and excellent teachers. My child has been at Sanders for 3 years and she has excelled. We have had teachers that truly care abou the children. I recommend anyone looking at Sanders to stop by and meet with the principal and staff.

I love Sandersl! We just returned to the school and the faculty & staff is very polished. The environment is warm and friendly. I really feel that my children are getting what they need at Sanders. The only thing missing is more parent participation. Actually, I think the rating should be slightly higher (5 or 6) because the test scores were great overall!

The lack of supervision in the cafeteria (during breakfast and lunch) has led to bullying and intimidation of students who are very good students and dont have the confidence to tell a teacher and expect a result.

I think that this is a lousy school not enough focus from the administration not a challenging curriculum. Need a forigen language and the teachers are okay but I think that they can do far better then they are doing I pulled my son out and start homeschooling him unfortunately he has to go back to school but I'm looking for a far better school then Sanders to send him to for sure.

We have three children in this school. The administration is lousy. They offer no foreign language as part of the curriculum. The teaching staff is decent.

My daughter has been enrolled at Sanders since kindergarten (she is now in the 4th gr.). It has been good except the number of students per teacher has gotten way to high. I think there are 25 students in her class this year. there was a principal who was great, but left for a bigger job. in the meantime we have had a few temporary ones who wanted to throw their weight around. Now, we seem to have one who seems to be at our school because she wants to and cares.
