    Awesome school! i moved out of this school in sixth grade and after a year i still want to go back! They offer many EC activites and the teachers are fine. Big school with a very nice atmosphere. The education is great but a little more challenging would be better.The only thing is that the backrounds are not very diverse and they could increase the diciplinery becuz i have seen bulling there. I highly recomend this school. Plus the studetns will love ms.lennon MS.LENNON U R MY FAV TEACHER

    Excellent school. I'm very impressed with the teachers. The school environment is very supportive. I have two 6th graders at Sandburg and they enjoy going there every day.

    This school has a wonderful nationally recognized physical education program. This group of phys ed teachers try to get every child involved in extracurricular activities. The special ed department leaves much to be desired especially in reading. Reading program for special needs kids is new after much need. Great music and arts programs also. Parent involvement is super. Admin staff is super.
