This is the first school year, 2015-2016 for my first grader. So far there is only good things happening. I like the way they engage the children to teach the parents what they have learned, such as the school rules, cafeteria rules, yard rules, etc.
I like the weekly newsletter sent home by both the principal and the teacher, to keep parents and family updated on whats going on.
However, I still do not like the uniform requirement for grade school aged children.
Sunnydale is the best! The Principal is amazing! She goes above and beyond to help make the school the best! A weekly newsletter is sent home, to keep everyone informed on what is happening in the school -and anything coming soon that students and parents can participate in. The parents are always informed of everything going on, they are given updates on their children and classroom work daily! For the students, they have access to many options for success! There is always extra work sent home for further advancement and to keep your child challenged. Plenty of independent work given for the appropriate level..so your child will never fall behind. Teachers work hard to keep each child on track and go above and beyond to please everyones needs! They offer a ton of programs, clubs and extra learning offered at this school! The technology in the school is majorly updated in all ways! The PTO always puts on super fun events, as a reward for the kids hard work! All of the staff is so friendly and helpful! Everyone works together to keep this school amazing! Sunnydale Rocks!
This school is trying its hardest to help the students improve achievement. While participation from the teachers isn't the greatest, neither is the participation from the families. This school really cares about its students.
Most children are instructed below-grade level and teachers are not provided with necessary teaching tools. Discipline and structure are lax. Although there are some good teachers here, the over-all quality of instruction is poor. Children who leave to attend public education find themselves well below level and many are retained or put in remedial courses.Priorities are not uniform and too much time is spent off task in some classrooms.Teachers cannot meet the real needs of the children. This is not a school for any child seeking to advance his academics.
This is a very nice school for the neighborhood. I would have liked to have more events planned to get to know the teachers. I thought that it was great that there was a pet rabbit that all of the students knew. Apparently he would visit different classes on different days.
