Our School

Sand Point Elementary re-opened in the Fall of 2010 and has established itself as a thriving neighborhood school.  The school supports a diverse student population that is a direct reflection of our community.  As a relatively smaller school, we have a unique environment where there is a true sense of community and families have the opportunity to contribute in several ways.

In our first year, Sand Point students voted on the school mascot and we are now home of the Sand Point Squirrels.
