What makes this school great is the dedication and competency of its teachers and staff. The school is committed to the advancement of all students. It is a school where ESE students excel. I would recommend this school to anyone committed to their child's education and growth.
This school has the absolute best ESE teacher on the planet. Anna Lillie has such a way with this special population, it's unbelievable. We need more like her!
The Best Group of Teachers led by the most awesome principal! They are doing a fantastic job, keep up the hard work boys and girls, ladies and gentlemen!
Sunrise Park has a dedicated and professional team lead by Principal Alicia Steiger. They are known locally for a staff and faculty that goes above and beyond the normal to provide a top level education to our students. In addition the very active parents contribute over 12,000 volunteer hours each year assisting with book fairs, picture days, car line, school fair and more. SPES partners with community agencies to offer such services as mentors for students, grief camp, a reading therapy dog, grandparents in the classroom, and more. Clubs and activities range from self defense, running club and Samaritans to Color Me Happy, Student Council and Art Club.
Great school with great teachers! Students are challenged and the parents are very involved. My children have been very successful.
Sunrise Park is the BEST school in Palm Beach County! We have a phenomenal staff who is truly dedicated to the individual success of each and every Sunrise Park student. We offer an enrichment program for our primary aged students. Our ESE department is top notch and offers students a variety of services and options to meet their diverse and specific needs. We are an "A" rated school and the proud recipient of the prestigious 5 STAR AWARD by the Florida Department of Education for eight consecutive years. This award is due to the efforts of our AMAZING PTA organization. If you want to be involved in your child's school, Sunrise Park Elementary is the school for you! It's truly a team effort at Sunrise Park. SPES ROCKS!
Sunrise Park elementary school has the most amazing staff and teachers. I am so lucky to be a part of this school with both my children. They are there for me to help with my child's needs and work to help make them both successful. It's a team that is fully committed. I will be sad when it's my time to go. SPES rocks!!
I am a very proud and dedicated teacher at sunrise park elementary., and might I also add, a parent of two girls who attended our fabulous school while their sensitive teachers every year met their needs beyond my expectations! You should know that the community within our little school flows and functions like a close and caring family , as well as a top notch A + school made up of dedicated educators and administration. Quite honestly, our principal Mrs. Alecia Steiger never ceases to amaze me with her heartfelt care and concern for her staff and ultimately the kiddos! With my 18 years of teaching experience I have been fortunate to open our sunrise park elementary school and sandpiper shores elementary in our west Boca community. I've resided here and raised my girls here and would like to let others know how very happy you will be when you enroll your children at Sunrise Park Elementary! I welcome you and your family with open arms. Ms. Ivy Soffin second grade teacher.
I recently moved here from NY and although my chid was in G&T there, we opted for our local school, Sunrise Park. Best decision! My child's teacher is an amazing, kind educator that challenges her in all subject areas. I was nervous about the Florida public school system because I didn't know much about it, I am more than pleased with my decision. This school also has a wonderful PTA that has so many fun activities all the time for the students. Bottom line...my daughter has adjusted so well and absolutely loves going to school everyday. Looking forward to the same experience with my younger child next year.
Amazing teachers and leadership at SPES! The atmosphere at Sunrise Park is positive, warm, and inviting! The Principal and Assistant Principal are caring and support all students successes and achievements!
I have a child in 2nd grade and he has been going to the school since kindergarten. We move to West Boca Raton in 2009, from East Boca. We research all of the schools in the area and found Sunrise Park to be an A rated school. My personal experience with the school for the past 2 years, has been wonderful. The principal and the vice principal are amazing and have all the children best interest in hand. The teachers are wonderful and the parents involvement is awesome. SPES also has a wonderful PTA board and volunteers who do GREAT things for the kids and staff!
This school is amazing. I have a 3rd grader and 2nd grader, both of them absolutely love it. The teachers here are top notch! The Principal and Assistant Principal truly care about every single child at Sunrise Park. Parent support is great! The staff in the front office is knowledgeable and so friendly. You feel like a big family coming into Sunrise Park. I personally wouldn't go anywhere else! I couldn't be happier with how my children are thriving!
Recently moved to Florida. Started my son in 1st grade here. Trying to give it some time hoping that the school becomes what I expected it would be according to what I was reading, but my patience is growing thin. There is very little communication, I have no idea if my sons homework is being checked or not, my notes to the teacher aren't being replied to, I'm also not sure if the spelling words he is being given to be tested at the end of the week are being reviewed anywhere else but at home. I'd also like to add that my sons personality has been very different sunce entering this school, and not for the better. Maybe it's just the teacher... Maybe not. Who knows at this point. At this particular point in time, I know I regret moving my child to this school. Here's hopes for something to change my mind and put me at ease.
For the parent moving from North Fl, we moved to Boca 3 years ago from VA. My daughter is completing 3rd grade, her first at Sunrise, and her 3rd school in 4 years (moving had more to do with this than the school itself, but she did go to Sandpiper for the past 2 years). I am proud to say Sunrise is a big improvement. Her teacher is awesome, well-organized. I have seen her leadership as a class volunteer multiple times. I have also met with my daughter's special teacher - very nice and "with it." This school has its act together!
I really hope this school is excellent, we are moving from north Florida and my children are now attending a charter 10 school, I do not see recent reviews from this school, as a parent I will like to know how is the school doing during this 2013 year. any parents out there dare to comment?
This is our first year at Sunrise Park and it has been a wonderful school year for my son. His 4th grade teacher is fantastic as well as all specials teachers. His teacher cares deeply about the sucess of each studnet! We couldn't be happier!
Sunrise Park is a wonderful school. Administation is warm, friendly and knowledgeable. The teachers are kind, caring and extremely qualified. I'll be sad to see my daughters leave for middle school. We have great memories at Sunrise Park.
I'm not really sure what the last review was talking about. The teachers at Sunrise Park went above and beyond the call of duty this past year even with the hectic departmentalization switch over. There were so many teachers taking time from their personal lives to help the children learn and understand the material from the curriculum (not just the middle kids). We have such a great group of teachers, general staff members and administrators. I'm proud to say my daughter will be graduating Sunrise Park next year with a great elementary education under her belt.
I feel that Sunrise Park used to be an exceptional school....that has become a mediocre one. The administration is running it like a business...very cold and not taking into account that we are supposed to be helping each and every child (regardless of ability) strive to be the best they can and learn and excel on their level. They are teaching to the middle kids, leaving out the advanced kids as well as the kids who need more help. It's a shame that the teachers are so consumed with what administration has them doing that it's not as enjoyable for them as it should be.
I feel that Sunrise Park is an average school and I am going to be changing schools next year. They have no communication between parents and teachers. Also security is very poor for children safety.
