Sandia Prep is an outstanding school. Their focus on the students as their number one priority is clear from the headmaster to all staff. The school has strong leadership from the headmaster. The academics are rigorous, while allowing students to thrive in a caring environment. The sports (in all grades, and no-cut) and numerous activities encourage students to participate in extra-curricular activities. The security on campus is superior to other schools in Albuquerque. The overall culture of the school is unique and results in an incredible place to attend school. I know my children will not only be well-prepared for any college they choose to attend, but that they will also graduate as confident, well-rounded and kind young adults

Sandia Prep provided an enriching experience that aided the development of my leadership, academic, and athletic skills. I largely attribute my professional success as a writer, critical thinker and leader to my teachers and mentors at Sandia Prep. I believe students are afforded positive freedom of expression in a way that is unique among its peer institutions. I am me because of my seven years at Prep!
