  • The accelerated teachers are extrodinary. For anybody focused on quality math and science this school is for you. Mrs. Pirrone, the AP Calculus teacher, has the highest AP test past rate of any educator in AZ, only one of her kids has not passed the AP Calc test in her 7 years teaching the class. Our Accl. Chem teacher, Mrs. Murphy, was a chemical engineer for an oil company before coming to Sunnyslope. The Accl./AP Bio teacher, Mr. Dersch, actually discovered an organelle (some appendige to the Golgi appuratus). And Mr. Forsman, our Physics teacher, worked at Fermi Lab (where they invented the atomic bomb) before coming to Sunnyslope. Our theatre program has been quite excellent. We have a state champion vollybal coach, basketball coach, speech
