¡Bienvenidos a la escuela Intermedia Sanford!

We are proud to celebrate over 80 years of history as a part of an ever changing, lively river community with a magnificent multicultural heritage. Sanford follows the middle school model serving grades 6-8, and is located in the Longfellow neighborhood in southeast Minneapolis. We are currently undergoing an expansion project that will be complete for the 2016-17 school year, adding a new gym and 14 new classrooms.  Come visit us at 3524 42nd Avenue South. We would love to see you.

Our school day for 2015-2016 is 8:30am - 3:45pm for students - 45 minutes longer this year. Our morning program is 7:30-8:15am and our after-school program is 4:00-5:15pm (starting 9/28). We are grateful for the additional time in the school day for our students!
