Sands Secondary was formerly Sands Junior Secondary with Grades 8-10 until 2005. With the reconfiguration of three other high schools in North Delta (Delview, Burnsview, and North Delta), Sands Secondary became an 8-12 school. It graduated its first Grade 12 class in June 2006.
Sands has several sports teams, including junior and senior level Volleyball and Basketball teams. In 2009-2010, the Senior Boys Soccer team won the AAA provincials. In 2007-2008, 2009-2010, Sands won the Fraser Valley Badminton Championships. The school also has a Field Hockey team and as of September 2010, features an Ice Hockey team.
Sands Secondary runs on a linear system like other Canadian high schools. It is based on 8 courses separated into four days. For example, if Monday is a day 1 then Tuesday would have to be a day 2. Each day contains 4 blocks numbered ABCDEFGH. Day 1 contains A B C D block, while day 2 contains E F G H. Day 3 contains B A D C block. Day 4 contains F E H G block. Between B and C block there is a 45 min lunch break, as well as F and G block.
