About Us

Welcome to our "Sanchez Family!"


Our school is named after the late Professor David J. Sanchez Sr., a phenomenal teacher, mentor, and community member. Due to his exceptional achievements in education and in the local community, Sanchez Elementary has adopted his motto: We strive on a daily basis to: "Reach beyond the ordinary to achieve the extraordinary."


Our school is a warm welcoming community where students enjoy coming to school. Our school is staffed with highly qualified teachers who are extremely dedicated to helping our children succeed. As members of a professional learning community we take it upon ourselves to be constant learners, always seeking to improve our service to our families. Students receive a standards-based curriculum, presented by dedicated professionals who strive to ensure all students meet or exceed grade level standards. We consider our students' diverse cultural backgrounds an asset and partner with families and community members to provide an education that builds upon our students' strengths. Ongoing evaluation of student progress and achievement helps us refine the instructional program so students can achieve academic proficiency.


We have made a commitment to provide the best educational program possible for Sanchez students. We welcome any suggestions or questions you may have about the information contained in this report or about any aspect of our school.
