We absolutely loved this school. The support and teaching methods used with our child were absolutely spot-on. The administration has such a hands on approach, making every child know that they can succeed. Our child thrived here and learned so much! We were very, very sorry to move on to middle school which has exactly the opposite culture. Wish we could've taken all of the teachers & administration from this school with us to the middle school - it is sad for us there. We miss you all so much, especially Mr. Haines & his great staff.

We love Sunnycrest and are so happy to be a part of the Sunnycrest community. I deducted one star because of classroom size, but I know all the schools in the district (and area) are in the same boat. I feel like the principal is extremely accessible and friendly, and has always been very responsive. My experience with the teachers have all been positive. I believe they truly care about the kids and education. I do think there is frustration with classroom size, which shows sometimes. My daughter is happy and thriving though, and that's top priority for me!

This school is wonderful. I have made the effort to get to know the faculty and have always kept in touch with the teachers, principal and staff at Sunnycrest, and they need that. As a result, Sunnycrest has been extremely supportive to our children and family as a whole. A parent has to be part of the school experience for a child, I have done that and Sunnycrest has far exceeded my expectations as a result. Unfortunately, we are moving to Oregon this summer and will have to attend a school that can never top the experience of a Sunycrest education. Thank you faculty and staff of Sunnycrest, you are a first rate school. -The Bush Family

My two children were new to this school, and came into the school year late. I would give the school another star if it weren't or the office staff. I DREAD having to deal with them. They always seem too bothered to give you their full attention, and half the time don't relay the messages I've asked them to give to teachers. When we came in to register it was like pulling teeth to get any information. No handbook, no lunch menu, no nothing. I had to sit there and ask the less then thrilled secretary every question I wanted answered. You know, really frivilous questions like....What time does school start?, where do my kids line up before school, where do I pick them up?, how does lunch work? I still find this school unwelcoming.

My daughter is in second grade at sunnycrest, she struggles in math and reading. I'm extremely disappointed in the lack of attention she is getting in class. Neither her teacher or the principal ever respond to emails. I talk to her speech therapist who spends 30 minutes a week with my daughter more than her teacher who spends all day with her. My daughter complains constantly about getting picked on and the teacher does nothing about it. I pray for a better teacher next year to give my daughter the attention she needs.

My boys are in KG and 1st grade at Sunnycrest. The remodel is beautiful, but the best aspect is the staff and their attentiveness to my kids.

I think this school is very unorganized maybe it was just my daughters teacher. But there were 4 children in the class that had ADHD and I feel the teacher did not have enough time or help to focus on the rest of the class and have them learn to the best of thier abilities. My daughter who is bright would come home just upset that there was never enough time in class to finish assignments due to all the misbehavior that day with the problem kids. very upsetting. i expected more from a school in the lake stevens school district.

There are not any academic programs for younger kids, only 3-5th. Then there is sometimes Spanish and music. They are struggling to get the acedemic levels up. Many kids come in to Kindergarten with no prior schooling. There are some parents that participate but, most don't. The teachers seem to come first and there are few aids on the playgrounds. They are trying to make it a better school. With, a more stuctured program for academics. But, still in test phases.
