    The Sanderson High School Choirs have earned a reputation of developing singers with a passion for musical excellence dating back to the school’s opening in 1968. Currently, the Sanderson Choirs consist of Spartan Singers and Sandpipers. Members of the Sanderson Choirs also have many other opportunities which include small ensembles and solos. Our students are consistently chosen to be members of Honors Choir, All-Carolina Choir, All-State, Governor’s School, school musicals, and more! Our choirs have performed extensively across the state, country, and world. We enjoy singing for our community and appreciate all of the support given to us!
