New leadership and staff at Sunflower have struggled to work cohesively as a team to recognize and challenge students academically. The learning environment is not as great as other schools in the district.

Handles bullying effectively: Strongly disagree


- a
The current administrator would choose to smooth things over while punishing victims and not effectively dealing with inappropriate student behavior. Thankfully, district administration is more supportive.


Supports LD students: Strongly disagree


- a
New leadership struggles with letting teachers and patents have say in their students education. As a result the principal is often deciding if students need challenged more. As a parent, I do not see the teachers being supported in pracrices for recognizing and challenging students who are learning beyond the grade level expectations.

Effective school leaders: Strongly disagree


- a
New building leadership has in essence railroaded staff and personally not treated students, staff, or family members in a professional manner. As a school employee, but more importantly a school leader, one must be able to exhibit decorum, professionalism, and basic manners. No child school feel unsupported or like the principal is mean, especially a bright, talented, and caring young learner.

Develops character: Disagree


- a
New building aministration does not support teachers who have challenging students exhibiting behavior towards peers and staff ( hurtful, vulgar, dangerous, or repeated behaviors). District administration is more supportive in these instances.


Teacher effectiveness: Disagree


- a
Teachers are not able to challenge top students in their class in optimal ways. They also do not have support from administration to look at students early on who are exhibiting signs of giftedness.

Amount of homework: Strongly disagree


- a
Despite knowledge of foundational effective practices, Sunflower has jumped on a fad wagon and decided that students don't need homework. Anyone with a strong understanding of learning knows that students need repetition to achieve automaticity with skills. This also removes the awareness and opportunity for parents to participate in their child's learning through homework.

What a great school. The teachers are all very dedicated and the administration is absolutely the best! Even the crossing guards are great! They make every student feel special. Also, the school has a very active PTO that comes up with great activities for the students and families. The Principal stands at the door at the end of the day and tells each student good-bye and he calls them by name! Our 10-year-old granddaughter came to live with us mid-year and he was instrumental in making a smooth transfer.

Two of my children have gone to this school and I have nothing but good things to say about it! From a wonderful Principal who actually involves himself with the students, to GREAT teachers who will bend over backwards to make sure that your child has the opportunity to succeed! I had one incident of bullying with one of my sons, but upon reporting it to the Principal.. it was dealt with IMMEDIATELY & has never happened again!

My kids are going to sunflower this year, and we have been more than pleased. We didn't want to switch from Moonlight, but it has been a great experience. We love the teachers and staff, and the kids absolutely love it there.
