    Dr. Saryn Hatcher Sandalwood High School Principal Greetings Saint Nation!

    Welcome Saint Nation to the 2018-19 school year.  I am very excited to be your principal for the second year at Sandalwood High School, and it is my hope that as the year progresses you will get to know the staff, the programs and the policies we offer at Sandalwood High School.  It is our goal to work with you to create a high performing learning environment for ALL students.  As you know, student success is a shared responsibility between the school staff, students, community and parents. We call this our #SaintNation.

    As you know Sandalwood is a back-to-back “A” school, however we are not complacent with this accomplishment.  Our new goal is to be the first comprehensive high school in our district to three-peat as an “A” school. It is my expectation that together we will meet this and any other challenge with determination and excitement as we celebrate the greatness of our children.   

    We are proud to be an AVID demonstration school of distinction, which means we have a prescribed method of creating college and career ready students that has been sustained over a long period of time. Whether your child is officially in AVID, Early College, Advanced Placement or our standard curriculum, everyone is expected to learn the Sandalwood AVID way.  We have imbedded AVID strategies school-wide as we prepare our students for a global workplace.

    Your contributions are invaluable to the school through family engagement nights, volunteer time and support of school activities. I look forward to working with you and developing a relationship that will assist in the growth of your child/children.

    Go Saints!
