Dear Sanger West Parents and Students,

Welcome to the Sanger West High School website! As the proud Principal of this amazing school, it is my privilege to extend a warm welcome to all students, parents, staff, and community members. Sanger West High School, home of the Hornets, is a place where we believe in the potential and greatness of every individual. Our school community is built upon a strong foundation of respect, collaboration, and excellence. We strive to create an environment where every student feels supported by all adults and students on campus.

At Sanger West, we have a set of shared values that we refer to as “WESTpectations.” These expectations encompass Work Hard, Establish Connections, Show Respect, and Take Initiative. We encourage our students to embrace these values and incorporate them into their daily lives. By doing so, they will not only succeed academically but also become responsible citizens who positively impact the world around them.

Our dedicated and highly qualified staff members are committed to providing an exceptional educational experience for every student. We offer a comprehensive curriculum that combines rigorous academic standards with diverse extracurricular activities. Whether you have a passion for the arts, athletics, STEM, or any other field, there are numerous opportunities to explore and excel in your areas of interest.

Additionally, we prioritize fostering a safe and inclusive environment at Sanger West. We celebrate the diversity of our student body and work diligently to create a welcoming atmosphere where everyone feels valued and respected. Together, as a united Sanger West community, we can achieve remarkable things. I encourage parents and guardians to actively engage in their child’s educational journey and partner with us in creating a strong home-school connection. By working hand in hand, we can provide the best possible support and guidance to our students, helping them unlock their full potential.

Lastly, I want to emphasize that at Sanger West High School, we truly care about our students. Each and every one of you is a vital part of our school family. As Principal, I am here to support and guide you throughout your high school years. Remember, my door is always open, and I am here to listen, encourage, and celebrate your accomplishments.

I am excited to embark on another incredible academic year with the Sanger West High School community. Together, let us embrace our motto of “Protect the Hive, Respect the Swarm, Be ELITE”. Go Hornets!


Principal Samuel Polanco

P.S. Students and families, if no one has told you they love you today, Mr. Polanco is telling you he loves you.
