DO NOT send your autistic child to this school. They have a room with a 10-12" thick metal door and a small room. They will lock your child inside. They do not work with the students. They treat them like prisoners and if they don't comply, they are "forced" and manhandled. DO NOT SEND YOUR CHILD TO THIS SCHOOL! They DO NOT work with parents. They just send your child here because they don't want to spend the extra money helping or educating your child!

Sanders is an "alternative" school for students who require additional services that the other schools may not be able to provide. I have heard it referred to as the "Bad Kids School", but this is very misleading and unfair. While there are some students at Sanders that are there because they've been expelled from other schools, that is not the case for all students. The teachers at Sanders work extremely hard to provide a safe environment and to tailor the class work and lessons to the needs and abilities of the students. Breakfast is provided free every morning, and there is a huge focus on character building. The teachers seem to really know how to build rapport with the kids so they can gain their respect without being condescending or controlling. The staff are also very supportive and can be an excellent resource for parents.
