The Sandburg Middle School Experience Sandburg Middle School (SMS) is dedicated to career and college readiness. SMS believes that all students can perform at rigorous academic levels with appropriate support and prepares students to embrace the challenges of Advanced Placement courses at Robbinsdale Armstrong High School. Students engage in AP preparation in all core courses.

SMS utilizes CollegeBoard’s SpringBoard® English curriculum program with all students in grades 6-8. Students are prepared for high intellectual performance by starting the development of critical literacy skills as early as possible. SMS students are placed on grade level teams which allow them to be a part of smaller learning communities. These smaller learning communities help students successfully transition from elementary to middle school.
