all three of my daughters went and are still going it is an exellent school
—Submitted by a parent


Posted May 8, 2009

My child goes to Sunnymeadows. His first grade teacher (Mrs. Humphreys)is the kindest and most professional teacher I could imagine. I don't know if the district pays her for all the additional training she does, but I see her at UCR on weekends and I know she has her National Board Certification. Excellent teacher and could not be more qualified. I hope the other grades have teachers like this one.

I love Sunnymeadows Elementary. My daughter who is now 11, has attended this school since Kindergarten and my son is 7 and has attended K, 1,2 grades. The teachers my kids had throughout the years have been great. Kinder was the best year for both of my kids. I have a 3rd child that i was hoping to have attend Sunnymeadows also, however, we are relocating to Las Vegas this summer so she will not be able to go. I will miss Sunnymeadows . Thank you. E Moore

I think this is one of the best elementary schools in Moreno Valley, the staff is friendly and helpful like nowhere else (I'm a sub teacher and I get to go to a different school everyday and Sunnymeadows is much better than others in the same district, so I'm always happy when I have to go there). Teachers care, and always try to do fun activities to keep children interested in learning. They are fair with discipline, they encourage kids to use dialogue to solve problems and there's an overall nice and friendly atmosphere.

Generally a good school. My 5 year old is in kindergarten and is having great social oportunities however is not challanged academically. Kindergatern is taught as if all children did not know how to write or know the ABC's so my child was doing seemingly remedail work for the first couple of months. It would have been nice to have her more challanged academically. Aside from this her teacher is firm and fair and always helpful.The staff in the office and in the classroom are friendly and curteous and helpful. It is one of the better schools in Moreno Valley.

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.
