    I know it's only the second week of school but I want to write this review to say how happy we are that we transferred our son from a charter school to Sunrise Park Middle School. The teachers really care and he is interested in learning again. To receive a big hug from your middle-schooler for sending him to Sunrise?? PRICELESS.

    We moved into school new with a bad reputation. Principal was very unbiased treated my child with diginity. Teachers awesome!!! Especially Mr. Osterlund math teacher extrodinare. Very high level of education going on for accelerated students. Kids are very nice and welcoming. Teacher nice and helpful. I rate this school a 10. Thanks Sunrise for making school fun and safe.

    I have one son who went through Sunrise and one who is in 8th grade. I have always been very impressed with the teachers. They are very interactive with the kids and make learning interesting. The school is small enough that new 6th graders don't feel overwhelmed with the middle school experience. Both kids have had a very good experience there.

    I don't like Sunrise that much especially with the new schedule for this coming year. I tons of complaining about it. Plus I don't learn stuff the teachers are just reteaching us things we already learned in the 3rd grade! I am also very disappointed that we don't have art until 8th grade and now this year its only for a quarter! I have lots more to complain about like I have already said but I won't bore you any longer...

    this school is all I could ever want in a school. The teachers are probably the nicest you could ever meet and I feel like I'm actually learning something.(shout out to mr. hopkins and mrs. switzer) I believe in education that there is nothing more this school could do. In activites it excels. There is so much to do all times of the year you can never be bored.
