Sandhills is a wonderful school. The environment is very nurturing and encouraging. Although this is a school for students with Learning Disabiliies, it still holds the students to high standards. As the assistant head of school has said, 'They go as fast as they can and as slow as they must.' The teachers are wonderful and knowledgeable and have done a great job helping my daughter improve her reading skills tremendously.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
