I have two children who have attended Sunnyside. I greatly appreciate the creativity, knowledge, and commitment of the teachers. My children are thriving academically and socially in part due to the teachers and staff at Sunnyside. Class sizes are unfortunate, limiting my overall school rating.

I have had both my children go through Sunnyside. This school has excellent experienced teachers, great programs, the best office staff, great community involvement, and so much more!

Great school! Rigorous academics, well-rounded arts, computer and music programs. Caring teachers. Couldn't have asked for a better school.

I feel that Sunnyside has great young teachers with lots of drive. Class size are too big in the lower grades, however there are a few blended classes.

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.
