The Hero’s Journey
The picturesque sculpture series, “The Hero’s Journey”, at Sandhills School is intended to reflect life at Sandhills and the values we hold dear as a community.
Students are greeted every morning by a mighty buck that stands on two huge stainless steel buttresses twenty feet above ground. This icon is called Lean On Me and it represents the reassurance they students receive daily from their Sandhills family. We are always here to support the whole child.
As the students enter the building and make their way down the front hallway into the commons area they are greeted by two powerful bucks engaged in a valiant battle. This work entitled Private Fight symbolizes the struggle we all face as we meet daily challenges “head-on” from learning to read, understanding our place in the world or accepting each individual without prejudice.
