So true. This school is so overcrowded. It does not offer special programs for the children that go here like Music, Art, field trips, not even tutoring for the kids that really need it. This school apparently doesn't get any funds. Its so unfortunate that this my childrens home school. Will be definitely transferring my kids to a different school. Wished they had a better Principal as well. Maybe the school needs someone who is more involved in childrens learning needs and with more experience to make this a way better school.

I have 3 daughters that have promoted from this school and have 1 in second grade. Yes, I agree that the school does not get enough funding, the Principal, Teachers and the Staff are doing a great job. The school is always clean and yes there are programs to help achieve better grades. Ask the teachers for more info. What this school needs is for the parents to be more involved. Your children need your support. Don't blame the teachers because your child did not do their homework!

Sunnymead Elementary's test scores and performance needs to improve. Someone needs to improve this school not for the parents but the education of the students alone. Thank You -Alma Sanchez

Sunnymead Elementary is a overcrowded underprivliaged school. There is no music program for the kids, or art club, homework club no extra activites for the kids to participate in. My daughter hardly ever has a steady a/c or heater in her classroom it is always broken. They don't have good text books, the landscaping is horrible. There is hardly no play ground but there are other schools in Moreno valley that have lots of extra activities and special programs so what does that tell you about our school district. That it is unfair and favoring the schools in the higher class neighborhoods and depriving our children of a real education.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.
