Sunrise Elementary has been a blessing to both my husband and I. I typically don't like writing reviews but because of how wonderful this school has been for my son , I had to make an exception. My son has autism and I must say he really has improved ever since starting school at Sunrise. He is currently in Pre-k and he is doing excellent. Though he is in a self contained class, his teachers are great!! They are very patient, encouraging and willing to work hand in hand with me. The saying that " it takes a village to raise a child" is very true. My husband and I and the teachers and therapists at the school all work together to help my son. I had tried other private schools like motes sortie at celebration and everyday I would cry because the teacher would complain about my son all the time. She wanted me to get him a "shadow" and wasn't willing to spend the time with him to help him. With Sunrise it was a complete difference. My son is happy to go to school everyday is improving so much. He has improved in his communication skills, his academics and his interaction. In summary, this school and my son's teacher (Ms Biggers) has really changed my life. I am a very happy mum!!!

A wonderful school with a great Administration and Teachers. It is a very organized school and rewards children for behavior, grades and attendance. The Stretch for Excellence (or Gumby) program is a great way to get the kids motivated to achieve more. My children are very happy at this school.

Sunrise Elementary is a unique school, because throughout the years it demonstrate that, change can be done, with hard work and dedication, that's why it is now a Grade ' A ' school, and going much further.

Sunrise Elementary is a blessing. I have a 2nd grader who absolutely couldn't wait to get to school every day. Her teacher not only made learning fun, but surprised me by challenging my daughter more than I even thought she could be challenged!

I give Sunrise 5 stars!!! This school has been such a blessing for my 2 kids & for my husband & I. We see the effort that all of the staff puts out there for ALL the kids. Upsetting is reading the 2 comments from parents regarding the school that say the school is no good. They are dead wrong!!! If maybe they would participate more in school activities or show up for SAC & PTO meetings maybe they would see what the school does for their kids. To all the staff Keep up all your great work !

I definitely do not recommend this school if you have a child with a learning disability or need to have services through an IEP! They are not open to more accomadations after others have failed. One thing that would help any child is to have recess midday to release energy instead of at the end of the day for 15 minutes! Also, there is a cruddy reward system in place for good behavior and they do not reward first graders for straight a's! My child has a major attention and focus problem and their only answer is to medicate! I feel there could be more effort to accomadate then take the easy way out. Highly disappointed parent.

I was a new teacher fresh out of college and this admin. and school family has been so wonderful! Teachers try so hard to bring the best possible education. Many stay late and get professional development. Parents are great. We have reading, math and science nights to encourage community. I am so thankful for this school.

Sunrise is an awesome school. My daughter is in 1st grade and is reading chapter books already. Mr. Campbell and Ms. Bracy are always looking out for the best interest of the students. I couldn't ask for a better school. There is no doubt that Sunrise will jump from a B school to an A school this year!

I am very disapointed in this school and will be doing everything possible to keep my children out of it next year. The way some of the teachers and staff talk to the children is very disrespectful and inapropriate. My sons teacher does not have his class wash their hands at all during the day not even befor lunch or snack. My son is in 1st grade and has came home with every excuse as to why his class did not get to have recess that day (which is only 10-15 minutes when he does get it) and they do not get it on Wednesdays. They do not even have a gym they hold there P.E class outside on cement. The list goes on and on I do not recomend this school.

My kids love being Sunrise Sea Stars! My son has learned so much in kindergarten that he even shocks me when he reads to me a story. My daughter in 2nd grade is doing great and when she was lacking in something, they picked her right up & helped her to understand the work. They have been involved in all the activities that the school hosts from the skating to the science & math nights to the fundraisers in & out of the school. And my husband & I volunteer at the school as much as we can. We love being a part of such a great school! Keep up the good work Mr. Campbell! (and faculty of course!)
