School Reviews

I graduated last year and miss it! The teachers do make sure you understand the lesson and the school is small so it's really easy to make friends and know everybody. They do give lots of work though and the college classes can be a lot sometimes.

Sandhoke is an amazing school that has helped me thrive and grow academically and mentally. The teachers really care about the students and get to know us individually. They also challenge us and force us to think in more innovative ways. There are a growing number of clubs, many of which are student led. Sports are accessible, but the school doesn't have any teams. To continue, there's recycling and the facilities are really nice, especially at the college campus. The school honestly feels like a really big family because we are smaller and even though Freshman year can be a kind of hard (due to higher expectations and changes), most students graduate with good memories and strong relationships. Also, most kids are very academic and plan on college after high school.
