The faculty at Sandwich High School exceeds expectations. Staff members constantly push their students, and find ways to fit each students unique learning style to prepare them for whatever their next step after high school is. Not only this, but the staff members strive to develop relationships with each individual to allow students to feel comfortable in their classes. The main downside to sandwich high school is it lacks variety a of course. There is very slim picking, but the teachers are all extremely passionate about what they’re doing.

Nice small community school experience. School facility itself is too small for current school population. Mobile classrooms used and lockers too small to hold coat. Teachers are caring, but most do not support outside the box thinking. Administration is visible and open to student concerns.
School adjusts needs to students and tries working together to make the school the best it could be. Althetics are not the best but they spend all season practicing and students have fun. Teachers care about the students' education and are very helpful. Little diversity. Prepared students for college well.
