Yes, all humans are Homo sapiens. There's some disagreement over whether Neanderthal Man was a subspecies of Homo sapiens (Homo sapiens neanderthalensis) or a separate species (Homo neanderthalensis), but no reputable biologist would disagree that all modern humans are not only the same species but the same subspecies.
