I attended Sandia View Academy, graduating in 1966. Best part of my life. Awesome school and friends.

I attended Sandia View Academy in the 70s. It was a small school then, just as it is today. The staff to student ration was amazing, and it was obvious that the teachers really cared about their students. It was probably the best experience of my life.
