My daughter was a transfer student and did very well at this school. The teachers and staff are friendly and informative. I would've liked the school to have a more aggressive curriculum, as my daughter was not challenged. I did not approve of the school district conforming to a certain community by not allowing certain foods to be served and by renaming holiday/special events as to not offend.

The outdoor supervision by staff is poor at best. There have been incidents of bullying that go unpunished because there is not enough staff around to watch all the students outside. Kids in the morning walk to the playground around the outside of the building that is NEVER staffed and creates a very dangerous scenario for the security of the students.

Sunrise has an unbelievable principal who has created an excellent community. The staff is committed and very talented. The PTA is active and parents really care. My children love going to this school.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Washington used the Measurements of Student Progress (MSP) to test students in reading and math in grades 3 through 8, in writing in grades 4 and 7, and in science in grades 5 and 8. The MSP is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Washington. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.
