    "I went to Sandpaper starting in the third grade, and I did not enjoy my experience there. I had trouble making friends. There are many cliques. The academic program was very challenging, which was the one redeeming quality for the school. The teachers were okay. Some were better than others. The start of the new SDC there turned out to be a complete disaster. My sister was enrolled in said class, and it was one mess after another. For two years the administration couldn't be bothered to hire a qualified teacher, and had an aid as an "Emergency Substitute". The principal didn't welcome the class, or even acknowledge they were there. The new class was pretty much invisible. At the end of the year, the PTA forgot her entire class from the yearbook."

    "Pretty good. Strong PTA. PTA seems to be driven by "select few" families. Environment is clean. Professional staff."

    "With high test scores and an API of more than 900, I am worried that our students are performing too high. Do you think I am kidding? High test scores and a highly stressful academic environment go hand=-in-hand. We don't want our kids throwing themselves on the train tracks like five Palo Alto students did these last 8 months, do we? Be happy. Take your children for weekend car trips. Enjoy family life."

    "Sandpiper teachers are excellent, (especially my daughter's second grade teacher!)..some better and more committed to challenging the kids than the others. I would prefer though that the teachers not always cater to the lowest common denominator and try to break kids into groups, such that they are challenged and do better in the company of their peers. I would also like to echo another parent's sentiments..in this they lack a good enrichment program like spelling bee, mathletics, drama or choir club. This would not only be a great way for PTA or school force to raise money in this time of recession, but would also make our kids smarter and well-rounded in preparation for middle school."
