Construction of an approximately 18,000 sf gymnasium and multipurpose facility for Sandhills School will break ground this month. Sandhills School is a not-for-profit, co-educational day school for children first through twelfth grades. Located off Garners Ferry Road on 22 partially wooded acres, it hosts a pond, wilderness trails, wildlife, protected beehives, sports fields and a playground. Sandhills provides the foremost learning environment for students with an average to superior intellect who learn differently. Sandhills develops the potential of each student by fostering intellectual curiosity, principled character and a commitment to serve. Sandhills School is the only school in the Midlands that has the prestigious Orton-Gillingham Accreditation and only one of twelve in the entire United States!
Boyer Construction looks forward to the start of the Sandhills Gym Project, which will consist of a state of the art maple basketball court, fine arts performance stage, class rooms, meeting area, weight room, and outdoor social gathering area with fireplace. The exterior will be a combination of brick veneer and EIFS with an outdoor basketball court and tennis practice facility. Sandhills School conducted a ceremonial groundbreaking following its commencement exercises on May 27, 2016. Construction will begin in early August.
