Sandia Preparatory School

532 Osuna Rd NE, Albuquerque, NM 87113

Sandia Prep originated as Sandia School, a private day and boarding school for girls that was founded by Ruth Hanna McCormick Simms in 1932. Circumstances during World War II forced the school to cease operations. Under the leadership of Mrs. Albert G. Simms II, the present school came into being in 1966. The school became coeducational in 1973. Students are required to take courses in English, the fine arts or communications, history, mathematics, modern languages, science and physical education. Students pursue academic interests in-depth through elective course work in such areas as outdoor leadership, Model UN, digital filmmaking, broadcasting, newspaper, ceramics, dance, music and theater. Qualified seniors may participate in an occupation or a profession that particularly interests them during the last month of the school year.
