    We had our child at this school. The teachers yell at the kids and have an oveall "I don't care attitude". The academics is poor! Teachers don't want the parents involvement only at a surface level. There's more time spent on the rainbow club (new age indocrination). They are trying to push this inclusive acceept everything attitude. The previous principal "Dr. Trotter" was really good but when she left it really went down. Many of the kids are really bade and disrupts the class for those who want to learn. There's also too much bullying!!!! More needs to be done about it. This could be a really good public school but it has poor leadership too many poor teachers and non-involved parents. I would not recommend sending your child here especially if you are a Christian.

    I found Sunnyside Elementary to be both satisfactory and disappointing. It truly depends on the teacher and their dedication and interest in their students. My first child had excellent k-2nd grade teachers and is doing great in school. My second child's teacher was unorganized and did not recognize that my child needed help. If you plan to have your children attend Sunnyside please be prepared to be 100% involved in every aspect of their education.

    I love Sunnyside. I have had three children go there and they did well. The principal knows each child by name. The staff shows concern for the students.There are a lot of after school programs to help the kids that need it. More parents should become involved in the PTA because it directly benefits the children and OUR SCHOOL. Thanks to all the teachers Sandy Ann Karen and Mr. Paul for making my childrens years in elementary school memorable ones. You guys are great.

    Sunnyside is a great school overall. I have two children there.If your child dosesn't succeed at Sunnyside it's because he/she doesn't want. Sunnyside offer different type of after school programs to help your child as much as needed. The principal as well as the teacher's are a well put together staff.
