My child feels excited everyday! He especially likes how the principal makes it a fun place. I like how she introduced herself explaining to me that wants my son to graduate and that she will to everything necessary.

The school was very welcoming and had great teachers until it got a new principal.

Sunrise Acres has turned around thie poor neighborhood. The administrating is very tough but is focused on getting the best out of their students. The staff is young and energetic, but you never know who will be your child's teacher as the teachers are always moving in and out of this school.

This school was an awful expirience, no computer classes and no extracurricular activities at all.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Nevada used the Criterion Referenced Test (CRT) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math, and in grades 5 and 8 in science. The CRT is a standards-based test, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Nevada. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.
