  • I attended the kindergarten recognition and it was horrible. The students who did not receive an award were terribly hurt. It broke my heart to see the students cry in disappointment. Again, this was the worse recgonition i have ever attended.

  • I really loved sun valley. My 2 kids attended this school, my son attended all the way through the 5th grade and the only reason he left was because it was a k-5 school, my daughter attended through the third grade.
    My kids both had wonderful teachers who really seemed to care about the kids. They both really thrived at this school. They are both in an alternative/gifted program at another school now and I really owe a lot to the wonderful, dedicated teachers at sun valley.
