Our Town

The Sandpoint community is an exceptional place to live and raise a family. We are located on the shores of beautiful Lake Pend Oreille surrounded by the magnificent Selkirk and Cabinet Mountain ranges. Schweitzer Mountain, a world-class destination ski resort , is a mere 11 miles from town.  Our geography and four-season climate offers a variety of activities for outdoor lovers, from downhill and cross-country skiing to swimming, boating, camping, hiking, mountain biking and more. With a population of only 6,000, Sandpoint enjoys a rich cultural life, including the internationally acclaimed summer event - the Festival at Sandpoint. Many musicians, theater groups, and artisans call Sandpoint their home. Our school building is located on a sunny site just minutes from downtown and next to a spacious park and playground with beautiful views of the surrounding mountains.

Sandpoint has been recognized by Outside Magazine, Men's JournalRand McNally and Sunset Magazine as one of the best places to live and play in the west, Sandpoint has it all!
