This school is the ugly step child of Upper Dublin schools. The elementary and high schools are very good. I think this is where the lowest performing teachers are sent. My daughter received a study guide that said Bonn was the capital of Germany! How about giving the kids some information that is not decades old. My daughter pointed this out to the teacher and instead of being appalled, the teacher dismissed her. If this was an isolated incident, I would not be concerned, but seems to be all to common in this school.

I have had three children attend this school since 2002. The administration, teachers and education continues to get better with each passing year. This middle school will provide your child with an excellent education which rivals any private school. The new administration is a breath of fresh air and has the best interests of students in mind.

VERY overrated. If your child is already a top performer, you will love this school. Other parents of top performers are very active in school PTO. For the other 80%, there are few resources, other than sink or swim. The administration is unresponsive to these concerns, or attempts to put parents to sleep by stating they have few resources. For children who need assistance with organizational skills, social skills, or don't qualify for an IEP (and even if you do qualify), you will find brick walls everywhere. Expect to spend $$ to hire tutors who will work for you. The administration has a poor reputation, protects poor teachers, the students come last here, unless state law requires them to receive attention and help.

I think that Sandy run is a good school for any student. I t provides the rigors of intense learning with extra-chiricular activities and sports. Any student looking for a school that can help them excel in their lives should condider Sandy run middle school.
