Each day I set foot upon our campus and enter a place unlike any other—an innovative, twenty-first century school nestled against the awe-inspiring Southern California foothills. A place where diversity is celebrated, collaboration flourishes, and students are presented with opportunities for academic and personal growth on a daily basis.
Three qualities make our school exceptional.
Unparalleled opportunities. Our talented faculty offers an expansive and challenging program in the arts, sciences, and humanities. Our students are encouraged to be scientists, artists, athletes, mathematicians, musicians, designers, writers and innovators. Our extensive extracurricular activities, clubs, and programs are designed to complement the child’s academic program while being engaging, relevant and fun.
Each child is known and valued. Diversity is our greatest strength. Students step on campus in the morning and are immediately greeted by an incredibly friendly and caring staff and student body. We work hard to understand each student as an individual with unique gifts and talents. Success is measured one child at a time.
Joyful community. A sense of humor and boundless curiosity comfortably thrive amidst a challenging, academic program. Our staff is intentional about building strong professional student-teacher relationships with a focus on mentoring. Our students grow and flourish in an environment that allows children to be children, with the aided support of a faculty that understands and cares about each child.
What are the results of a Sandburg education? Each year we graduate poised, articulate, empathetic, creative, and intellectually flexible young adults, the strongest evidence for the positive impact of our program.
I hope you take the time to come and visit our campus and learn more about our unique learning opportunities and programs. I am confident that there is no better place for teachers to teach or students to learn.
