  • i think it's a okay school but there are odd things about it. like some teachers are really strict and i kind of agree that they focus more on sports that in their class subjects. the food service is BAD! but there are also the fun parts of the school. like the dances

  • This school doesn't even deserve one star. The teachers can't recognize potential, and don't encourage students into more challenging subjects. They focus too much on sports.

  • Carl Sandburg Middle School is a horrible school. The students are inappropriate, racist, and USE DRUGS AND ALCOHOL. If one of the teachers may please check the sixth grade hallway boys bathroom after third period you can easily find someone smoking or drinking alcohol.
