My experience at Sandy High School was the best experience I've ever had at a school. I enjoyed every second of my high school experience thanks to the students, teachers and staff. This school is very well organized and has many different opportunities for each student as an individual. I have gotten the best education because the teachers there genuinely care about their students. Thanks to my school counselor I have gotten so much done that I only needed 2 credits at the start of my Senior year and I know exactly what I want to do after high school. I would consider myself friends with most of the students at Sandy High School and they're all amazing and respectful individuals. I believe the friends I have made will be my life long friends. I also got the chance to be a part of Sandy's Varsity cheer team which was the best! The girls are amazing and so are the coaches. I am very proud to be a Pioneer! Go Sandy!

I loved my time at Sandy High School. The school offered "dual enrollment" with the community college which allowed me to earn over 40 college credits while in high school. This gave me a huge advantage when I started college. I bypassed most of the general education classes that most of my peers had to take during their first semesters. I also loved my teachers and still think of one of them as the best teacher I've ever had. The new building is amazing. It is clean and beautiful and has a great library, gym, black box, and auditorium. Sandy High School has a nicer building than my college!
Sandy High is an amazing school with opportunities that prepare you for college and even allow you to take some of your college courses before you leave high school. We have the best academics and athletics with a happy-go-lucky attitude on the field or in state competition. At SHS there’s something for everyone! With FFA, leadership, HOSA, equestrian club, snowriders, softball, and the list goes on, everyone can have fun any time or the season. Wether we’re on the field or at a desk, we have Pioneer pride!
