Sandburg Elementary is a beautiful K-5, traditional-track school in the heart of Mira Mesa. We take pride in our diverse ethnic cultures, with approximately 30 languages other than English spoken in the homes of our 776 students. We honor our diversity by flying the flags of 31 nations in our center court.
Academic achievement at Sandburg is a priority. Our students consistently score above the 60th percentile in mathematics and literacy on the California Standards Test. We are also proud of our high attendance rates.
In addition, Sandburg students enjoy a strong arts curriculum, with specially trained art teachers in the classroom one hour each week. Students in grades 4 and 5 are invited to participate in an instrumental music program. All students participate in a character education program that encourages students to learn citizenship skills and to develop a positive self-esteem.
