¡Bienvenidos a la escuela Intermedia Sanford!






Great note to our Family Liaison from a new 6th grade parent! Thank you to all our new parents for your faith in us at Sanford!

Sanford has a well-deserved good reputation with parents at [my daughter's elementary school] and I see why. My daughter is a sixth grader. I was very anxious for her to attend Middle School. Sanford has eased my nerves.
The communication from the school to the parents has been excellent. I have found the teachers to be accessible and attentive.
Just wanted to give a shout out. You guys are doing a great job. I am So happy we chose Sanford.




Kudos, Sanford teachers!  We received a wonderful note from a parent of a 9th grader, sent to her son's former team teachers last week:

[My son] is at Roosevelt now, and having a good time of it. 

[He] recently turned in a rough draft of a paper that impressed his geography teacher, and the teacher said "Let me guess, you went to Sanford?" He proudly responded yes. 

Thank you for having high expectations and making school a challenge. It is not an easy row to hoe, I'm sure. Hope the 6th grade part of the loop is enjoyable - those families are lucky!

Sanford sets the bar high...hoping Roosevelt is doing the same!


 We are excited about the changes our new 7-period day schedule allows:

* All students get classes in all 8 MYP-required subject areas every year: Language & Literature, Language Acquisition, Mathematics, Sciences, Design, Arts, Individuals & Societies, and Physical & Health Education

* English, Math, Social Studies & Science are still team-based, so the teachers all share the same students and students stay together for 3 years

* We've increased offerings in Arts, Design, PE & World Languages, including the additions of Choir & Spanish

* Advanced Reading, AVID, Readers' Workshop & Focus Math are still options for students who want or need them

Dr. Palmer spent an hour with each team reviewing the MYP program & how it impacts the new schedule. If you or your student have questions, please give us a call! Dr. Emily Palmer, Principal: 612-668-4901;  Tracy Walberg, Counselor, 612-668-4905; Vicki Jones, Parent Liaison, 612-668-4914

Thank you!
