Float that will collect data

Greetings from Antarctica!

Our 9th-grade geology classes have adopted a SOCCOM float (named "Sundevil Unicorn") that is currently collecting data in the Southern Ocean. The float is part of a collaborative project with many institutions, including Princeton University, to better understand the Southern Ocean's influence on climate.

Remembering Our Founder Barbara Young Simms

Barbara Young Simms, Founder, Sandía School (June 22, 1920 - October 27, 2018) Barbara Young Simms, our founder passed away on Saturday. She was an indomitable spirit whose life journey was spent in the service of others. She founded Sandía School at Edith Boulevard and Osuna Road in 1966 because she felt that girls deserved every bit as good of an education as boys. “When you educate a boy, you educate a man. When you educate a girl, you educate a family,” was a phrase she often repeated. She will be deeply missed. Please read more about our matriarch (click the headline above.)
