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 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.

The first day of school for 2016-17 will be Monday, August 29.  Our school day for 2016-17 will be 8:45am - 3:45pm for students. Our morning program will continue at 7:30-8:30am and our after-school program at 4:00-5:15pm. We are grateful that MPS continues to support the longer school day for secondary IB schools! Offering 8 required subject areas gives kids a great education, and we need the 7-period day in order to do it well.

If you are interested in touring Sanford, please contact Family Liaison Mara Bernick at mara.bernick@mpls.k12.mn.us or 612-668-4914. We are under construction this summer, but our doors will be open again in the fall and we welcome your visit!
