About This School
Charter schools are public schools, but differ from traditional public schools in that they are independent and are operated by educators, parents, community leaders, educational entrepreneurs, or others. Funding for charter schools is based on designated local or state educational organizations. Those organizations are responsible for monitoring and assessing the quality and effectiveness of education, but permit the schools to operate outside of the traditional public school education system. See Sunshine Elementary Charter School's test results to learn more about school performance.

Sunshine Elementary Charter School Reviews
this school has not met any expectations i had in comparing it to another charter school my children attended. They come home with homework that is irrelevant to what they should be learning (seems as if meant for kinder kids) and they even come home with no answer to the question "what did you learn today". They themselves say they feel unchallenged and i have noticed them getting lazy in their studies since starting this school. very disappointed. They'd probably be better off in an overcrowded public school. The only good thing about this school are the people and the fact that everyone knows everyone. Unfortunately this isn't what school is supposed to be about
