Sandhills is an amazing place to be! I love the feel of community here, and as a teacher, I am especially thankful for the smaller classes that facilitate us being able to meet each student`s individual needs. Since I have been here, I have absolutely loved watching kids that were once very timid and insecure, just blossom! To be part of such a school is truly a blessing!
