Still a great school, but when we lost Eric Nelson, an amazing principal & Mrs. T, a HUGE loss for Sanislo's PE & SCATTS program...well it just doesn't feel the same. We still have a fabulous Art teacher! My daughter loves the after school CDSA program, they are wonderful at helping her with homework!

The school provides many ways for students to shine. The ratios are a bit high, especially given the open-concept of the school. I was concerned ...  Read more
