I am concerned that Sunnyside Elementary School, while it excepts severely physically and mentally disabled children into its program, offers little attention aimed at these children's individual and educational needs, and it is not equipped to provide any interventions whatsoever designed to educate and work with the autistic child.
Sunnyside is a wonderful neighborhood school on it's way up. We didn't even know it existed, and had chosen 5 of the high profile elementary schools on our lottery form. Of course we didn't get any of the ones we chose, but instead were assigned to Sunnyside, which is minutes from home. After receiving our assignment we toured the school and were very pleasantly surprised. Mrs. Barker, the principal, is a very hands-on woman, extremely easy to talk to. The teachers seem to have complete control of the school. The kids are well dressed, well disciplined and appear happy and challenged by their work. We just took part in 'Octoberfest', a day of games for the kids, and it was a blast. I would like to see more parental involvement, but maybe that will have to start with us!
