I sent my 3 children to Sandia. One is in college, the other two are still there. They love their school. There are very happy with the principal,the faculty and the basketball caoching staff, both girls and boys. I am satisfied with their education and have great respect for the principal. It is one of the top public school in town and although not the perfect school--is there any perfect school-- I am happy my kids are schooled there. Racism? My kids,who are black,have had no complaints in 5 years.
I am a former student of this school. It is a typical school in which it is more apt to fund sports programs than decent books and extra curricular activities for non athletics. There are teachers of great brilliance. There is a diverse student population and many different types of clicks for students to fall into. Violence and drugs are not rampant, but also not unheard of. As far as education goes, it is a personal choice for the student on how much they want to learn here. In my class there was a student who got a perfect 1600 on the SAT s. That same year we had record drop out rates. All in all, I feel that this era of development allowed me the freedom of a kid entering into maturity.
This is an exelent school. The teachers care. The principle is exellent. The activities are great. the security is good and high. it is a safe good school and a great learning enviroment
There is rampant racial discrimination in this public school. My child was harassed, threatened and had to leave school. There are too many students and not enough security. I removed her from this school and will home-school her.
Sandia is one of the top public high schools in Albuquerque. It has great diversity in the student body. Many of the faculty members have been at Sandia more than 20 years. The parents are supportive but could get a little more involved. It's a very spread out campus but their campus security covers it well and are respected by the students. Sandia has one of the largest special education enrollments in APS. They have many gifted special ed teachers. Their band and chorus are top rated as are most of their athletic teams. The students blend well together. There is a high level of tolerance for others since the student body is so diverse. All in all a great school for students wanting a real education in a socially and culturally diverse atmosphere.
Sandia is a great school. I love that my daughter goes to one of the best schools in the city.
