Sanford High School is a school located in Sanford, Maine. The current school building was built in the 1970s. Stanford's campus population is approximately 1,300 students.
Sanford High School is a member of the Southwestern Maine Athletics Association (SMAA) which is in Western Maine Class A. The mascot was the "Redskins" until 2012, when, due to upset in the Native American tribes of Maine, the school decided to change their mascot. The students ended up voting to become the "Spartans." Facilities include Cobb Stadium (football, soccer, track), Goodall Park (baseball, field hockey), Little League Park (softball), Shaw Field (subvarsity soccer teams), and the Sanford Veterans Memorial Gymnasium (basketball and wrestling).
The football team was "Class B" State Champion is 1956 and 1959 and "Class A" State Runner-up in 1978 and 1982, State "Class A" Champion in 1998, and Western Maine "Class A" Runner-Up in 1999.
Sanford High School's rival team is the Massabesic Mustangs, and their existing rivalry in wrestling expanded into all sports beginning in the fall of 1987, when Massabesic entered "Class A." Prior to that, the longstanding rivalry for Sanford was with the Biddeford High School Tigers, and the two schools began competing with each other prior to 1900.
