This is our 4th school year at Sandia Vista. We moved away over winter break last year and have returned to an absolutely fabulous staff makeover! There is such a different atmosphere at Sandia Vista, the administration really cares about making school a place that children LOVE and LEARN. What a great ...  Read more

Last year was our first year with Sandia Vista. While the school is nice and I hear great things about other teachers, my child had a newer teacher who didn't seem to assess students well or teach students who were above average. Also, I do not believe single digit addition and subtraction should be ...  Read more

I come from a family of educators and principals so I feel like I am extra harsh on schools and staff...with that said I have been very happy at SVE. My child has attended since 2009. I almost moved my child to another school in the district because I wanted him to attend a more established school, but ...  Read more

The school administrators are arrogant, disrespectful and extremely narcissistic. They lack professionalism, common sense and basic fundamental skills needed to run a facility. The teaching is also sub-par as all curriculum is solely focused on Common Core testing and not educational needs. For example, ...  Read more

Don't waste your time! My Daughter has gone to Montessori for Pre-Kindergarten and has excelled in it. I wanted to continue her in the Montessori program, so this school caught my eye. I went to the parent meetings and it sounded like they had the concept. She started this year in Kindergarten very ...  Read more

The principal is not very communicative. I tried several times to contact her regarding a matter during the '09-'10 school year and she never called back. This was even after I left polite messages for her on her answering service (she never picks up). She can be a bit rude when questioned about anything. ...  Read more

Disappointed!! The school year started great, but after three months, my daughter's teacher went on extended sick leave for two months. During that time, my daughter had several different substitutes whom did not continue with the 1st grade lesson curriculum. Little or no homework had been given. ...  Read more
