    Sandusky Middle School is the best school my son has ever done in. he has had straight A's since we moved here from Florida. Not to mention the Excellent band program wich has won so many awards the teacher Mr.Meredith hangs them on the walls and there is so many he has to put the leftovers in his office. They have won 3 NAI championships and come Superior in ever Lynchburg Classic 67 times ! They are nationally recognised and they are proven the best band in Lynchburg some of the players won 1st chair in the All District Band.

    I think Sandusky is a very good school. I know since my son transfered there his attitude has changed. I like it because the principle gets involved with whats going on. That's a plus..
