Sunnyside Elementary School Reviews
My daughter attends this school and it is a great school. The parent involvement and teacher mentoring have really turned this school around. The fact that it is small also provides a sense of community to both children and parents alike. The teachers are caring and involved and take the time to address issues head on. My daughter came from private school and was behind and through the benefit of competent teachers and the Excel program is now finally catching up. From what I understand this school has turned around considerably and has become a desirable school to attend. We are grateful to have this school and everyone who makes it special in our neighborhood.
