My child attended this school for part of fourth grade and the fifth. The teachers she had weren't big on parental communication, which aggrevated me. The principal seems very non-chalant and in her own world. The school has been locked down several time for escaped convicts in the area. The school is several blocks from a prison. There are several apartment complexes in the immediate area.

Sandel is a great school. Each employee cares for the students. There are great resources available during and after the school day. Most parents who don't like Sandel are the ones who do not actively participate in their students education.

I have two children that have attended Sandel Elementary and I have been very pleased with the academic programs. My middle child is a rising senior with a 3.4 GPA. I believe if a child can get the basics, they can be successful and the Sandel teachers have provided that (basics). Part of my responsibility is to work with the teachers and to re-enforce my child learning abilities. I also have a younger son that is currently a student at Sandel, his teacher was awesome, she worked diligently with the children, it wasn't just a job for her but it was a matter of the heart. Sandel have an open door policy for visiting your child's classroom (which I often do). It brings comfort to know that I'm sending my child to a school where learning and educating the child is the number one priority. Sandel is a very good school.

I think Sandel is an excellent school and represents Richland School District One well. Any parent would be happy to send their child to this school. The children are receiving an excellent education. There are computers in all classrooms, the media center, as well as an excellent computer lab. There are many extra-curricular actvities available to students. If you value education, Sandel is an excellent choice.

This is the worst school I have ever come across. The quality of the academic program is horrible as well as the materials that the children have access to. The level of parent involement is slim and next to none. If you value education, please do not send your child here.
