  • My grandchildren have been attending this school for 4 years. The teachers and staff really care about the children and everyone takes pride in the school.

  • I just read the previous parent review. Parents that are INVOLVED in school business know that there are many budget cuts from the STATE. Our schools are struggling! Get involved! Go to parent meetings, meet the principal, join the PTA, join the school site council - only then will you see the limitations and rules that are placed on the schools and its budget and how much EXTRA time the faculty and staff end up DONATING to the students. Parents complain about the budget, yet do you realize that you do not pay the monthly $500 + tuition that is paid at private schools. Sunnydale provides the students with all necessary items they need for learning. Pencils, paper, pens etc. Sunnydale does not require parents to pay or purchase these items, like a private school does. Donations are welcome but not mandatory. My children had the opportunity to have great teachers that are teachers from the heart and not just for the job. They went above and beyond the call of duty. They really CARED about the children. I have sat in the classroom and observed what was being taught and can tell you that my personal experience was pleasant. I found it amazing that the teacher could keep the children on task and hold their attention the WHOLE time they were in class. The teachers loved the students and the students respected their teacher and knew their boundaries. Being at the school often, I have also had the chance to observe that the faculty and staff have their hands full. There are many students who are rude, disrespectful, and argumentative. I have observed teachers call parents for their help, only to be rejected by the parent (too busy to come, its the school's responsibility to take care of their child) I think its sad that there are parents out there who don't take responsibility for their children and it's sad that they are not taught that we all are responsible for our actions. I have seen parents arrive as late as 5:00 p.m. to pick up their children from the school office, because they were "BUSY" OR "WORKING" OR "NOT ABLE TO COME" , assuming that it is the "schools responsibility" to take care of the children. Do you not realize that the staff are not babysitters? Do you not realize the staff DOES NOT receive Overtime pay? Do you not realize that the staff are paying babysitting to watch their own children and have to pay them overtime when this happens. I have seen these things occur because I AM THERE in SCHOOL and INVOLVED in my school and I want to know what my children have to deal with. The teachers and staff do an amazing job, and please consider how difficult it is for a teacher to teach a class of 20 or 30 when ONE child refuses to behave. All of our children miss out on valuable teaching time when this happens. You talk about the NO Child Left Behind Act - but there are also times when a child has "special needs" and teachers try contacting parents to schedule a conference or meeting and the parents never show up - Visit the school, volunteer, see what is happening and I am sure you will change your views. It also sends a good message to your child - letting them KNOW you CARE. Actions do speak louder than words. Call your child's teacher on a regular basis just to check in. You will see the difference. I do agree that there are areas that may need improvement as there is ALWAYS room to improve...
    Parents and the school community need to work TOGETHER in order for your child to have success.

  • As a parent of a student, that attends Sunnydale elementary school, I feel that there needs to be a lot more focus on the students education and less focus on the outer appearance of the school. how is it that this school can afford to remodel every classroom, but their budget will not cover summer school for students that are struggling and need extra help. this to me does not add up. They say that the policy is "no child left behind" but then, they leave our students in the dust, not giving them the proper tool they need, too succeed, such as summer school. As parents, are we to believe that the outer appearance of sunnydale, matters more than our children's education? Or do we stand up and demand that our children are provided with the proper tools they truly need, to be able to succeed? I for one am taking my stand to say enough is enough! My child has every right to an education and I, will make sure that he/she will get it. The budget is only one of MANY issues that Sunnydale has. Overall, if I had to rate this school, I would without any doubt give it a big fat F.
