Sandia is proud to be a CHARACTER COUNTS! school.

Our students learn and follow the six pillars of character:

Trustworthiness, Respect, Responsibility, Fairness, Caring, Citizenship.

Our expectation is to create students of character that become exemplar citizens inside and outside of school.

Along with CHARACTER COUNTS!, Sandia will be starting its third year of PBIS. We look forward to incorporating more positive recognition of our students. Our behavioral expectations because: "This is how we roll...Be Safe, Be Respectful, Be Responsible."
