Sandia Prep an Early Leader in Caring Schools Movement

Sandia Prep was among the nation's first schools, and New Mexico's only school, to join Harvard University's "Making Caring Common" campaign.

Sandia Prep was one of more than 135 schools that joined the campaign as "early leaders" who helped to inform, shape, and build momentum for the campaign. As part of the launch, Sandia Prep is joining other early leaders on Facebook and Twitter using the Caring Schools #CommonGood hashtag to express support for the campaign, publicly commit to a chosen action(s), and encourage schools nationwide to join the effort.

NASA Astronaut Spends Morning with Prep Students

A once-in-a-lifetime experience for many Sandia Prep community members: Harrison "Jack" Schmitt, a retired NASA astronaut and one of only 12 people to have walked on the moon, spoke at Prep this morning about his incredible experience as a member of the Apollo 17 mission.

As one of the last six living "moon-walkers," Schmitt answered questions from Prep's enthusiastic students (and faculty) about everything from colonizing Mars to what it feels like to walk on the moon at 1/6th Earth's gravity.
