GREAT SCHOOL!!, Because it is a smaller school it feels more intimate and personal. We were at a larger enrolled school before and felt no since of belonging. My experience at Sunview has been very positive with the Teachers, Principal and the PTO, they are so warm and friendly. I can't imagine wanting to be anywhere else. My son has learned so much and enjoys going to school again.

LOVE this little school!!!! The teachers are amazing, and my son has made great friends. Like the principal says we are small but mighty. I wouldn't want my son to go to any other school.

This school is the worst! I wish I could tell you the true story of the experiences my family had at this school. The speech teacher had a bad temper and I wondered if she was like that with the kids she taught in her class. Mrs. Wong, the substitute, is very rude with the children and has no patience. I was there in the classroom and actually had a talk about her with the Principle. The Principle informed me that she has had other complaints about both listed above. The moment you step into the office the receptionist Linda, does not smile and is very rude. Again, I spoke with the Principle and some how she is still there. The PTO does not know what they are doing and the other comments about them are very true. I am happy to say that my child will be attending another school and I will no longer have to deal with this school! The only teacher that I respected was Mrs. Tilton and I thank her for all of her hard work. The kids that attend her class are very lucky and I think she might be the only saving grace to this broken down school.

When I first enrolled my kids in Sun View it was wonderful, the teachers, office staff and principal are amazingl. We have been here for about 2 1/2 years and I am on the "PTO" which is a joke! Last year the president had leadership skills... unfortunately it was all a scam and our kids and school suffered. This year there is no leadership from the president and her "click" of friends who just happen to be on the board. Our school has been broken into stolen from and vandalized multiple times just this year!!!

After sending my child to our home school in HB we pulled her out mid year and moved her to Sun View. Many neighbors thought this was an odd choice due to the "rating" of our home school. However, I am in a position fortunate enough to work in a variety of schools through out OVSD and some of the neighboring school. This has given me the benefit of viewing many classroom environments and throughout OVSD and Sun View as well. We choose this school and love it! The staff is incredible and really know the students on a very personal level. It is quite a small school which has an intimate feel. The class size in K-3 is capped at 24 as apposed to 30 inHB. Sun teachers use differentiated instruction flawlessly in small groups for instruction in both a math and language arts (which allows the teacher to focus on 6 students at a time.) The teachers communicate and share ideas as a team really well so that children in various classes are getting the same experience. The recess is not as hectic as other schools, due to more aides and less students.Fun safe equipment that my daughter loves, and even teachers and a principal that gets out and play or jog with the students. Talent show rocks

My daughter is graduating this year and has been going to Sun View since Kindergarten. She gets awards, good grades and tests very well. The teachers and staff are doing their jobs. This year, Mrs. Folsom, the teacher my daughter had last year, was awarded 'Teacher of the Year', for Ocean View School District. I'm so proud of her!!

Great school. Great teachers and principle. However, not enough academically and athletically challenging classes.

I currently have a son who is in first grade and absolutely loves his teacher and her class. She is a kind and caring person whose focus in not only on academics but also my son as a child.

After moving from a rural Northern California town with a, in our opinon, dedicated school district. Emphasis was put on education and not on attendance. Sun View Elementary is a dissapointment to us. Too much pressure is put on the students to attend everyday, regardless of illness (I have seen too many kids very sick walking the halls). The Principal is a very nice man, and is great with the kids, he seems to be just a face for promoting attendance and fundraisers. With our incounters with the Special Ed department, we felt that we were being pressured into decisions that we were not comfortable with. Also there is a serious lacking of daily communication with the staff to parents. I don't like having to practically chase down a teacher to ask how my child is doing only to be hurried along.

Although the school has not met it's targets, I would say the teaching staff and the principal have to be the most approachable people I have ever met. They care for the children both accademically and socially. I do not question any leadership skills!

The teachers at this school are excellent and really work with the children. Currently the problem lies in the current principal, since his arrival at the school the test scores have declined, the students moral and the love of learning that used to exist at Sun View. The parents are very involved in this school, which is great, but the leadership is very much lacking.
