Profile Completeness


Want to improve this school’s profile? You can!

All schools on GreatSchools begin with BASIC completeness, which includes important information like contact details and test scores. It’s up to the school community to take the next steps. As a parent or community member, you can share what you know with other families by writing a review or answering a few questions about what the school offers. As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

The completeness meter moves to INTERMEDIATE, then ADVANCED, and finally HONOR ROLL as you complete the following: 10 or more reviews, at least 1 photo, and 9 program questions parents find helpful.

Sankofa was the worst possible school choice I could have made for my son. My son attended the high school and I had to withdraw him in the middle of the school year. The administration was terrible from the beginning, I wished I hadn't proceeded with my child's admission but I went on a recomendation from a parent who had a child in the elementary school. The high school principal was very unconcerned with my son's progress and very unresponsive to me. The entire school seems to have tunnel vision and showed a complete inability or desire to help or encourage my child advance with his career choice which seems to me to defeat the whole idea of education. Sankofa is not a school for a child that has gifts and goals beyond what they are teaching, they do not support or encourage in any way. I would not recommend this school to anyone.

Sankofa is an awesome school. My child has been here for 4 years now. She came from a neighborhood school that was not meeting the boards criteria. I can honestly say that her reading has improved tremendusly. The expectation for all of the students is to exceed and the teachers really care for the students. It is the best decision that I have made.
