Sanderson High Ratings & Reviews

Looking back, Sanderson was the perfect high school for my kid. The size kept things manageable without them being lost in a sea of faces. Teachers reached out at critical times.,My kid was not a genius nor high enough to be a junior Marshall BUT the preparation in the honors and AP courses prepared them so well they got accepted into all universities applied to and is performing at the highest rank possible as freshman in top tier school! The Academy of Finance is a hidden treasure in terms of preparing the child for real life exposure to computer programs, budgeting and business courses in college. Now they are a full year ahead of people in the business school already with a great resume. Sanderson was small enough to accommodate a lot of kids who might not have played at larger schools in the athletics arena. Special needs kids were treated to a wonderful club students volunteered in to make them feel special. The rankings do not take into account the high number of disadvantaged students who go to Sanderson but who make it a great place to learn about different populations in the real world. College was a seamless transition for my kid because they were at a school where the focus was not on rich kids driving up in fancy cars. The “relaxed” casual vibe meant kids were dressed fairly simply and They could bust it in the APhonors courses or find niches in ROTC or drama etc. Just ask admissions counselors how well they have taken to Sanderson students ;) I feel strongly that “education“ should include developing interpersonal skills with different types of people. The environment at Sanderson cultivates this because it is so eclectic and I appreciated growth opportunities that exposure to immigrants, etc. provided us. The parents involved in the school deeply cared and made significant contributions. It is a public school and cannot be expected to have unlimited resources nor enough counselors for the need but while my kid was there and Dr. Decker was the principal for the most part kids were manageable and had whatever opportunities they chose to take advantage of right before them.I’m always shocked that SandersonHS is not ranked higher given the success rate I have seen. Sad. One more thing... Every school has its cliques but at S it didn’t seem to be the driving part of the culture. Walk the halls and you’ll see wide diversity is accepted as normal.

I have 2 kids at Sanderson and they have enjoyed their high school experience and I have been very impressed with the majority of the teachers.

Sanderson has very caring and dedicated teachers. The level of support available to students is huge. They focus on student success and are constantly looking for opportunities to get better. Scheduling was much better this year. Great school!

This school works against you every step of the way. Before I graduated, I married an United States Sailor and changed my last name. The office women put me down and paraded my marriage certificate around, asking for people's opinions on me marrying so young and always asking me when I was due. I was never pregnant. I graduated in the top 15% and also from the North Carolina School of Science and Math Online. Sanderson refused to let me wear my metal from the School of Science and Math without giving me a real reason. We couldn't throw our caps at graduation or anything traditional. DO NOT make your children go here, it will be the worst mistake you will ever make.
