Great teachers, very good academics and a real focus on kindness. My daughter is a kindergartner and we couldn't be happier. We'll be sending the little one there as soon as we can. Diverse community too!

Sunbeams is a wonderful place. I have two children in the school and they both love it at Sunbeams. The teachers and School Director are great. The school goes up to third grade now and I know my kids will be going there until then. Love this School.

This school dealt extremely poorly with my child that was behind in class, their only solution has been to hold my child back a year.

I was so nervous about how my son would do in preschool... The teachers and staff at Sunbeams are so wonderful! They really know what they're doing at this school (I think they've been open for 30 years now), and the teachers really care about the kids and take the time to communicate with parents and keep in touch. I've already signed my son up for kindergarten next year and it's only November!! I can't say enough. It's an awesome place!

Sunbeams is a great place for kids. Children thoroughly enjoy attending here. The teachers are so kind and caring, and the Christian environment is great. Students attend from a variety of cultures, so my children get to meet and become friends with children from around the world. The learning environment is hands-on, with science, social studies, music, and art being offered in addition to reading, writing, math, and literature. Sunbeams is a great place to be.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
