Amazing school, caring teachers, and staff. Various options for after school care and Master Davis' karate program won nationally. We feel like we hit the lottery!

this is not a true montessori school. there are multiple classrooms with teachers who who are not equal in quality.my child loss a sense of self because of the fear based teacher instruction. everything is reward and punishment based. my child had always been a self motivator and never needed rewards to be motivated, this is a very public school in that manner. i would have love to switch my child to a classroom that has a more compassionate teacher but being this a public school that is not even an option. it is the luck of the draw. i have never heard one positive thing about the 9-12 classes. there are very few options for a quality public education. this school did not resonate with my deeper values i have for children, empathy being at the top of the list.

We left an expensive private school to come here and couldn't be happier. What an amazing school! The staff is compassionate, the schooll is well organized, and the academics and extracurricular choices are fantastic.

my children have been attending sands since preschool and i love the school! The teachers are wonderful and very helpful and i like how they can pen point the strengths and weakness of each child in their class since the students spend 2 to 3 yrs with their teacher in the same class. I have a special education child and they are wonderful with her.

The love the teachers have for the students is amazing. The students get an amazing education in a brand new state-of-the-art facility!

In visiting the school there is a special feeling right away and in observing the children it's plain to see that they really care for one another. The faculty is warm and nurturing and deeply cares about their students. The principal has done a great job in transitioning from the old school building to the new one which opened this year. The school has a very active Parent Organization which does so much on behalf of the school and its students. I could go on and on but I think the main thing is that it's a school of caring!

Foremost, I love Sands because my child loves school. I feel confident that her teachers and the staff work every day to foster her social, emotional, and academic growth.
