¡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.
