My children have been going to this school for years and it seems with the new principal its went downhill fast. There are ridiculous parking issues and traffic congestion. They dont have a big enough lunchroom for everyone so they have 20 minutes to eat and get out which is not enough time. They dont have a kitchen so the food gets shipped over from castle rock middle school so there's never enough of whatever my kids want. Or it doesnt get made in time for my kindergartener to be able to get the choice of what she wanted. 90% of the classrooms are just big rooms with partition walls up so the noise from other classrooms and traffic through the halls can be very distracting. Also with no walls or doors what happens if someone trying to harm the kids gets into the school? Theyre instructed to hide under their desks with the lights off....like thats going to save them!!! They do have some teachers that are good and that we'll miss if we change school and the secretary is awesome but im pretty disappointed in this school lately. Seems like things just keep getting worse so ill probably be transferring my children somewhere else next year.

my son has attended Sandstone for three years now and he loves it. The school staff is friendly and accessible from the principal down to the aides. The staff truly cares about the students and their learning. I brag all the time about the fantastic school my son attends

My children attended Sandstone for 2 months before I transferred them to a more suitable school. Sandstone's clasrooms are set up in a way that is very difficult for children to concentrate and learn. There is one big room divided into numerous classrooms for early grades. For example my first graders walls were - 2 walls (outlying walls of the building, a row of computers served as the third and partitions as the fourth. The outside door was part of one of the walls so every recess numerous children tromped through the class causing distraction and noise. There is constant traffic in the 'hallway' (behind row of computers) also causing classroom disruption. My son was constantly sent to the office for not paying attention. This school does not demand much in terms of work. Other than a few minutes of reading there was no homework for either grade.

This is a wonderful school. The doors have always been open even if I just wanted to drop in & observe my child(ren). The staff as a whole is awsome to work with & they do the best to help each student to succeed.
