I graduated from Carl Sandburg High School in 2016. The teacher's were not only passionate about their work, but they also wanted to make sure that their students left the classrooms inquiring about what they had learned. Our school spirit at Sandburg was beyond compare. No one could beat it! Although not every student knew each other, there was an overall sense of unity.

CSHS is an incredible school in which teachers and administration truly care about the students and success of those students. My child feels safe and able to thrive. When dealing with difficult situations, administration always makes themselves available and willing to listen. Sports are engaging and focused on team work and doing the right thing by fostering sportsmanship and team work. The involvement of parents is highly encouraged and many opportunities exist to take part in various fundraisers and events.
Carl Sandburg High School has prepared me very well for college! The difficulty provided within this school was on par, if not more difficult, with college works. I am grateful I have attended this school.
