Sunshine might not be the best school in Hale County, but it's a great safe place to learn and have fun. We might not have all that high tech stuff, but we have what we need to learn.

Sunshine High School is a hidden jewel. The administrators, faculty and staff have the students welfare at heart. They go out of their way to ensure that 'No child is left behind.' Keep up the good work Sunshine Tigers.

Sunshine is an excellent school.


Posted July 26, 2008

I've taught 9 of my 18 teaching years at Sunshine. Walking from one end of the hall to other progresses from being hugged by kindergarteners to being high-fived by high schoolers. It is a family atmosphere daily. I have less than 10 years until I can retire, and I hope to retire from Sunshine.

About the tests


In 2011-2012 Alabama used the Alabama High School Graduation Exam (AHSGE) to test high school students in reading, math, language, biology and social studies. High school students must pass the AHSGE in order to graduate. The AHSGE is a standards-based test, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Alabama. The goal is for all students to pass the test.

The different student groups are identified by the Alabama Department of Education. If there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group, the state doesn't report data for that group.
