Sunrise has the most caring teachers I've ever dealt with. They take the time to address each student and cater to their individual needs. They make learning fun and it makes the kids want to grow. The P.T.T. is the best group of parents. They are welcoming and enjoy helping the kiddos and the teachers. They have a wonderful staff there and If we ever move out of district I would drive my kids there.

I love the dedication and passion the teachers and staff have for the kids.Alot of our kids are from a less than desireable home enviorment and to see the staff deal with compassion and loving discipline towards them is wonderful.

It is the best school because they put the kids first and do whatever they have to do to make sure the children have what they need to learn.

My children attended this school for several years. As with any school you need to be on top of your childs education and monitor his/her sucess. Since leaving the state my child now attend another school the doesn't even compare to Sunrise. Sunrise teaches organizational skills, how to be respectful to others, has a wonderful reading program I just can't say enought about it. Yes there is a growing spanish population at the school but these children also go to ELL so they can get the help they need without holding back other children in the classroom. I volunteered at this school for several years and I am very confident in this school. The only downfall of this school is lack of parent involvement.

I feel the classrooms at this school are oversized and my son did not receive the one on one attention he needed to excell. When problems arose I was notified in a timely manner and the staff just seemed to busy to be concerned about my concerns.

Classrooms are disturbingly large and, though Sunrise has had an ever increasing population of students who speak English as a second language, no policies exist to help these students while simultaneously attending to the advancement of English speaking students. Special care and attention to students is completely lacking- many children attending this school are poor and the educators don't expect much from the parents nor the students. My child will attend St. Mary's next year thanks to a scholarship.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Oregon used the Oregon Assessment of Knowledge and Skills (OAKS) to test students in grades 3 through 8 and 11 in reading and math; in grade 11 in writing; and in grades 5, 8 and 11 in science. The OAKS is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Oregon. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.
