    This is a great school. We moved from a more "desirable" school even though we did not have to because we felt the smaller size and quality of instruction were huge benefits. The parent community is great and gets stronger every year. An awesome school with a fantastic principal (Dan Warren).

    The school's vision sums it up nicely "At Sand Point Elementary we are a community of lifelong learners responsible global citizens and champions of our own success." The staff principal students and families demonstrate a commitment to investing in this vision on a daily basis. We are proud to be a part of Sand Point Elementary.

    Sandpoint is a very special school. We couldn't be happier with the staff and other families we've been privileged to meet. Mr. Warren is the most amazing hands-on energetic and creative principal. He and all his staff sincerely care about each and every student. They do their best to make sure each kid is thriving. My son qualified for advanced learning but he wanted to be at the same school with his sister who's started K this year. So his teacher let's him "walk" to higher grades for math and reading so he's challenged at his level. I feel like these accommodations are possible because of the small class sizes and willingness of the staff to work with each child. We are so happy the great diversity academic excellence and overall warmth of school family.

    I totally agree with the previous reviews. The involvement of both the teachers and the principal is amazing and admirable. The library is terrific with tons of new books. Our child felt at home from day one.

    I second that - the principal is wonderful and has hired great teachers. Small intimate school with great diversity. Has a bit of a "start-up" feel since it is only a couple of years old.

    Awesome school. Great principal. Great teachers. We moved to the area and it was a place where my child felt immediately at home.
