    "As an involved community member, I have been watching this school improve by leaps and bounds over the years. The staff members are dedicated and have high expertise. The International Baccalaureate program is comprehensive and well-developed. The principal is outstanding. The afterschool program offers lots of support and activities for students to extend their day and experiences. This is a great neighborhood with all the same great programs any neighborhood school has, and more."

    "Our daughter has attended Sanchez since Kindergarten and is now in the 5th grade. Our experience has never been anything but positive. We were welcomed as a family into the school and feel a part of that community. Our daughter has thrived at Sanchez. Our goal was for her to enjoy learning and that has definitely been nurtured by everyone at Sanchez. All my communications with members of the staff (teaching, office, custodial, support, etc) have been positive, informative and helpful. My daughter has been saying since the beginning of this year that she wishes she could stay at Sanchez and maybe they could add the next grades she will need. We know promote this school as often as we can - especially as a neighborhood school. We wish more neighbors would go to Sanchez instead of open enrolling...we also know that we have other great schools in Lafayette. We recommend Sanchez with full support of all they do."

    "My son started this year in kindergarten. I couldn't be happier with the school. My son loves his teacher, and all the staff. He is disappointed on weekends and breaks when new can't go. As a parent, I have found all of the staff to be friendly and welcoming. Any time I have had a question or concern it is always immediately answered. There are an abundance of opportunities for parents to be involved. I really like that it is an international baccalaureate, or "IB" school. The curriculum is based on critical thinking and creativity. They want the children to have a comprehensive understanding of ideas instead of memorizing facts and dates. They work hard to build a sense of community and respect. The principal, Dr Candelarie has worked tirelessly to turn the school around. Because of her efforts to improve the school, she won the National Distinguished Principal Award this year. I feel confident that Sanchez Elementary is the right fit for my family and my son."

    "This is a great little hidden gem in Lafayette! They are an IB School which teaches your children to be well-rounded global citizens. They have full time art, music and PE teachers! Teachers are amazing and the Principal is amazing! If your child needs help in any way, you can be assured that they will get it at this school. You are doing yourself and your child a disservice if you are only looking at the test scores from the school. I promise. Visit the school, you will be pleasantly surprised!"
