I have noticed that this school seems to dicriminate racially. If your a Caucasian family, you will be given less opportunity and less attention. Also, the office staff is very rude and unhelpful. However, the teachers are stellar. Thanks

Because teachers really have a personal touch when it comes to educating kids.

Sunshine Gardens has been a home away from home for me. The support from the Admin, Teachers, Parents and the PTA have given the school a sense of community which is so important in the overall achievements and growth of the students.

I feel very lucky that my son goes to Sunchine Gardens. Not only is the surrounding neighborhood safe, this school has wonderful teachers and a principal who really cares about the students.

My son is in kindergarden and I am very satisfied with his teacher, she is strong on structure, but well balanced . You can feel the principals prescence. She is a very hands on, friendly, people person and you can tell she works well with the staff. Though the students are very diverse I feel thier needs are met.

This school is excellent. I love the fact that the teachers practice an open door policy at all times, they are always there to inform the parents of their children's progress and how we as parents can help our children succeed in their education.

I really like this school. They place a strong emphasis on reading with book fairs and such. The teachers are great and have a lot of communication with the parents.

I think this is a very good school. My kids have been going to Sunshine Gardens for five years and I have seen nothing but sucess for my kids. I have three younger kids that wiil be attending this school either this year or with in the next two years and they like the school due to their older siblings. All the staff is great from the noon supervisors to all the way to the top, the principle. If you are deciding on a school I believe that Sunshine Gardens would be a possitive experienc for your child.

This school is absolutely not a school that consists of diversity. Much of the time here is spent translating to children who are non-English speaking students. English speaking American born children get the short end of the stick here.
