    I went to Sandia Prep for 7 years, sixth through twelfth grade. I thoroughly enjoyed my experience here. It is a small, private school, so you really get a one on one interaction between students and teachers, and they are more than willing to help you with whatever you need. It is a close community, so everyone looks out and cares for each other, and all the faculty and teachers want to see you succeed, both in the classroom and out. The athletics are amazing, continuously winning multiple state championships per year. I highly recommend Sandia Prep for anyone looking for a high-quality education, high-quality athletics, and a great school atmosphere.

    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 does an amazing job of working with students to find out their individual needs and goals to help each student succeed at their highest level. There are so many opportunities available to Sandia Prep Students that everyone can discover or continue their passion. The staff is dedicated to challenging their students in the classroom and offering support along their academic journey. Prep prepares students for college and for life!
