A well-rounded student body and very involved & caring teachers. There are top notch scholars that come out of Sunnyslope and the scholarship opportunities are many! Why pay $12K for a private school education when you can get the same opportunities here?! The AP and Honors classes are challenging and well-populated. The student body is highly involved in extra curricular activities and school spirit is very high. The parent group (Viking Parent Club) is very involved and is a great support to students, teachers and parents. So glad this school is in our community!

Sunnyslope has thus far been fantastic for this, my youngest daughter's Freshman year! She is a straight A student as of the end of the first quarter, is in Marching Band and LOVING every hardworking second of it (yes, even during October, affectionately referred to as "hell month" because of the intensity of band competitions as they try to qualify for State, added to daily class, practices, and football games), was encouraged to enroll in Honors English before school ever started and has had her Science teacher point out in front of other teachers and classmates how smart and well-behaved she is and how she should be in Honors Science as well (at next opportunity, she will be enrolling in Honors Science). I am thrilled with the school, the students, the teachers, and the level of parental involvement! AWESOME HIGH SCHOOL, locally and nationally!

This is my daughter's senior year class of 2012... yea, go Vikings! I love this school as much as my daughter; we had moved out of the district, but my daughter loves this school so much she takes the city bus to get there...My daughter is active on cheer for the last two years going on 3, swim, tennis, link crew as ambassodor for her school for all freshmen coming in, she is involved in community service; she has been nominated for several leadership programs in DC, Calfornia, and locally prescott UNI-Town and the best Choir ever. SHS has amazing faculty, staff and the principle has amazing leadership. Viking parents club is always involved in student affairs making the best events for SHS... I can't say enough for this excelling school for at least 6 years in a row !!! GO VIKINGS!

..... or as Koffka's saying 'The whole is other than the sum of its parts.' Meaning that SHS in reality as a whole represents the big picture independently, but the students depending on where your coming from experience something different leading to the same goal... an excelling education!

I am a former student. Let us be perfectly honest here. There is a huge disparity of how students are treated by faculty. The wealthy student's of 'slope' fair far better than your students of the lower income bracket....let us say the barrio or hood kids. All the rave reviews sounds like polital correctness-try living on the lower income side before you brag about how well all students are treated...There are well behaved bright students on both sides!!!Let them all be treated consistently fair or your best alternative is step out of G.U.H.S.D and try P.U.H.S.D where the schools consistently treat all students fairly....Just simply my opinion but there are several others who I have heard agree.

Sunnyslope high is by far the best school in Phoenix Arizona. The students are wonderful, the classes are great but the faculty could work a little harder on focusing on individuals and their own special needs but other than that it is a great school.

Sunnyslope lives smack dab in the middle of a middle-upper class neighborhood and lower class one. This creates an interesting conglomerate of a school typically divided into cliques. The teachers there are typically very good at what they do and dedicated to the students' learning and progress. I have seen a lot of movement in administration and would love to see more stability as a whole in the district, but have been very happy with my student's experience there.
