Thank you, Minneapolis, for your strong support of the 2016 schools referendum!!! It passed with 83% support. We are so grateful!
We are proud to celebrate 90 years of history as a part of an ever changing, lively river community with a rich multicultural heritage. Sanford is an authorized International Baccalaureate (IB) World School. We follow the middle school model serving grades 6-8, and are located in the Longfellow neighborhood in southeast Minneapolis. We are opening this fall with a just-completed new wing, 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 2016-17 is 8:45am - 3:45pm for students. Our morning program will continue at 7:30-8:30am, starting 9/6, and our after-school program at 4:00-5:30pm, starting 10/3. We are grateful that MPS continues to support the longer school day for secondary IB schools!
If you are interested in touring Sanford, please contact Family Liaison Mara Bernick at firstname.lastname@example.org or 612-668-4914. We welcome your visit!
