Sunnyslope Elementary School Reviews
The reason I give this school an "average" grade is because it has been a Title I school for several years. However, I like this school and I keep my daughter in it due to the various positive activities for children and the parent workshops it provides. I'm committed to having my daughter go to college and this school provided a wonderful wokshop that not only provides tips for encouraging students, but it also provides information on classes on which students should be encouraged to emphasize their studies. The school encourages parent involvement, and the two teachers my daughter has had, even though they have different teaching styles, are caring and dedicated. I have to admit my daughter was getting better grades in a previous school, but I feel that between her current teacher and me, we can improve her grades.
I have read extensively on how the arts improves students' grades, and, unfortunately, this school does not offer them due to budget cuts. I am planning to bring up the importance that including the arts in the curriculum may have on students' grades to the school's principal to see if applying for a grant or something of the like can bring extra funds to specifically include the arts in the curriculum.
this school is not a good school to much violance, making fun of and everything.
