Sandpiper offers an engaging curriculum that is firmly rooted in the Arizona Career and College Readiness Standards. Sandpiper teachers are passionate about helping every student achieve their full potential in all academic areas, and they constantly explore new and exciting ways to do so.

The literacy instruction is second to none, utilizing a phonics-based program and a workshop approach from the prestigious Columbia Reading and Writing Project. 

In math, teachers take a balanced and inclusive approach that engages all students and provides opportunities for acceleration when appropriate. The FOSS science kits offer hands-on exploration of the world around us, and the dedicated science lab is the perfect space for students and teachers to delve deeper into scientific concepts.

Students in all grade levels participate in physical education activities as part of the special areas rotation. All activities are engaging, exciting and teach healthy attitudes about exercise and health. Students learn to compete with each other but also strive for personal growth in sports, strength and technical skills.

Positive Behavioral Interventions and Support is a systems approach to establish the social culture and the behavioral supports needed for all children in a school to achieve both social and academic success (Sugai and Horner, 2002). Our Sandpiper community believes that every child can be successful if provided the right conditions.
