A Message From The Principal

Greetings, Eagle Families and Friends,

It has been an absolute pleasure spending time during the early part of this school year getting to know our students! I have especially enjoyed spending time with our student leader groups.  Meeting with student advisory groups has not only given me the opportunity to start to develop meaningful connections with our students, but also to hear about Sandburg from our students’ perspective.  We make every attempt to create leadership opportunities for our students and give them a voice at Carl Sandburg High School.  Each student advisory committee is represented by multiple individuals from each grade level.  The student advisors help us take a look at practices and traditions, ask us questions about things that impact their experience, and make recommendations to us about all things Sandburg.  Continue Reading

In the Spotlight


TMA_RRRWe honor the past of those staff members and students who came before us.

We embrace the present by providing the best possible educational experience for the students entrusted into our care today.

And we create the future by preparing these students for what comes next and by assuring our schools are ready for the 6th, 7th and 8th graders that will be at our doorsteps in a few short years.

This is all done with a focus on  providing rigorous coursework that challenges students to grow. This is done by making what we teach relevant to our students today and to their future. This is done through relationships that encourage, challenge and support students both in their academic pursuits and in the sometimes challenging process of growing into young adults.

At the center of all that we do are our students as we develop Successful Schools for Successful Students.
