As a parent I feel the school has been great for my children. The teachers do truly care about the students education and well being not only as student but as a budding adult. My children have thrived at Sanborn and very likely both will be attending highly rated universities upon their graduation. I feel the experience at Sanborn was an integral part of their success. Reading some of the below reviews I feel these are very small an typical high school items getting voiced in the wrong forum. Overall the school is very GOOD!
Bullies get away with being bullies especially if they are on the football team. Cellphone use runs rampant in the school. They do not abide by their own rules, nor do they abide by the ones the State sets forth. Millions of dollars for a building that should have been spent on retraining most, if not all of the staff.
If you don't care if your child attains an education but can at least slide through four years of high school and receive a diploma, Sanborn is for you! If you want your child to know how to spell and count change back, find another school.
The only person I would thank is the resource officer. He tries to do his job and again, half the time has to throw his arms up in the air because he does his job and someone else reverses what he does.
They don't respect students or teachers. There are also countless teacher's pets at this school. Parents are responsible for teaching respect, the school is responsible for continuing to help the student. They don't.
Many students are bullied in this school, especially special ed students. When a previous student comes back to the school for revenge one year, I think that proves any teaching of empathy or caring is out the window.
