Both of my daugthers attend Sunrise and it is the best school in the Appleton area. Teachers are always willing to help, great principal and staff. Mrs. Bockhaus, Mrs. Sanders, Mrs. Janssen, Mrs. Laundrie, Mrs. Rice are all fantastic teachers. Mrs. Peloza - guidance counselor really cares about the Children. One of my daughters has had trouble reading and they went above and beyond what I expected. Mrs. Yeghiaian - School Phycologist is great and helps tremendously and the Special Education teacher Mrs. Rice is great too. I can't say enough about how much I love this school. We are moving this summer and I'm so sad to leave this district. THANK YOU SUNRISE TEACHERS - you're the best.

My son attended his first grade in SunRise Elementarey 4 years ago and he was in Mrs. Stenz classroom in that time. Unfortunatelly we had to move out of state but we still talk about our experience in Sunrise and great teachers and staff of this fine school. We had nothing but very positive experience in Sunrise, our son learned a lot and that year we met so many nice people and parents through the school. Mrs.Stenz, Mrs. Peloza, Mrs. Twombly are some of great people in Sunrise that we were fortunate to meet and get to know. We would highly recommend this School.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Wisconsin used the Wisconsin Student Assessment System (WSAS), which includes the WKCE and WAA, to test students in grades 3 through 8 and 10 in math and reading, and in grades 4, 8 and 10 in language arts, science and social studies. The WSAS is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Wisconsin. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level. In private schools, only voucher program participants are tested.

The different student groups are identified by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction. If there are fewer than 5 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group. Subgroup scores for each school are only reported for students who were enrolled as of the fall enrollment count. The All students score includes results for all students who took the test, regardless of when they first enrolled in the school.
