However, being an ex-Marine does not qualify a person to be an educator or school administrator. It is over-crowded, ...  Read more

CSMS seems to get a bad rap from gossip. I have had two children go through and my last is there now. I am very happy with the admin, teachers and opportunities offered.

I am very impressed with Sandburg Middle School, especially the seventh grade science department. My daughter entered 7th grade as an unmotivated she is involved and very interested in science. Thank you Ms. A!
