    small quiet country school. Sunman Elementary provides great education in ways my kids can relate. They start at kindergarten my reinforcing vocabulary and math skills right off the bat. My daughter is in the 3rd grade and reads at a 5.2 grade level. Sunman Elementary teaches these kids to be well rounded and well mannered young adult.

    I have been very satisfied with Sunman's education. Each teacher has been very helpful and wonderful. I feel as if the Principal really respects each teachers qualities and it really shows in the kids. There seems to be many parents helping out and when you see parent involvement it only can help out the whole community.

    This is our 2nd year at Sunman Elem. and I love the whole school! The principal teachers counselors the staff in the ofc to the kitchen to the janitors the art music and other programs are excellent! We were extremely blessed to find such a wonderful school and everyone has been so good to my children. I have not one negative thing to say all is well and when it's time for my children to move up from the school I know that it will break our hearts to leave. Thank you to all for all your hard work and dedication.
