SandburgLogo200Welcome to Carl Sandburg Elementary School, located in the northwest corner of the Mira Mesa community of San Diego. This naturally ethnically balanced community enriches the cultural diversity of the school. Academic achievement at Sandburg is a priority. Our students score consistently above the 60th percentile in mathematics and literacy on the California Standards Test. In addition to our strong academic achievement, we are proud that school attendance rates are high and discipline referrals are minimal, averaging fewer than two suspensions per 100 students in 2006–2007. Our curriculum is strong in basic skills, and Sandburg students enjoy a strong arts curriculum. All classes have specially trained art teachers who provide instruction one hour each week. During the 2007–2008 school year, Sandburg was able to provide theatre lessons to our students. Students in grades 4 and 5 are invited to participate in an instrumental music program. In addition, we have a strong character education program in which all students participate.
