Who We Are
At Sandy Elementary, we are a community school and work to provide programs and resources to serve our diverse population. Founded in 1951, Sandy Elementary is a Title I school, which has established a rich tradition of academic excellence despite unique challenges. Sandy Elementary offers Parent Literacy classes at our on-site Family Learning Center, Pre-school services, and an after school program (Shark School) which offers interventions for select students. Our Sandy Elementary staff and student population strive to be safe, kind, and responsible as we promote college and career readiness.
Sandy Sharks are learning today to prepare for tomorrow. At all times, Sandy Sharks are Safe, Kind, and Responsible.
