About our school:

“Leading with Respect, Learning for a Lifetime” is more than a vision statement; it is a way of life at Sand Lake Elementary School. As a “Leader in Me” School, Sand Lake is a strong community of learners with students, teachers, parents and the community partnering to provide the best opportunities for every student. Sand Lake has a vibrant neighborhood program and is home to the Japanese Immersion Program. The staff is recognized for its commitment and the school benefits from involved parent groups. While Sand Lake is the largest elementary school in the Anchorage School District, the sense of community gives it the feel of a much smaller school.
