I am a "new" parent to Sunny Slope I have two students that are doing wonderfully academically. Unfortunately, some of our personal life has infiltrated Sunny Slope and I had to have numerous meetings with Ms. Whitehouse regarding my ex-husband's bad behavior (I have full custody). She listened, understood ...  Read more

My 2 children (girls) go to this school. Not only does the PTA not get involved more with the children for activities, (they only plan one field-trip per class per year) But the PTA seems to be a social club. I can't give good reviews of this school, it is just bad. if I had a chance to pull my ...  Read more

My son is a kindergartner this year at Sunnyslope Elementary, and I am very impressed with their program. He just had his 3rd quarter conference, and to see the vast improvement in his writing and reading skills from September 2006 to March 2007 was wonderful! He learns respect and rules in his class, ...  Read more

Very poorly organized school. My daughter was new this year and my first impression was the principal allowing me to walk right past him and he didn't even stop me or ask me who I was or what I was doing there. He didn't and still doesn't know me. I have great concerns about safety. Next, the curriculum ...  Read more

I have had nothing but a positive experience with my involvement at Sunny Slope Elementary. Students are taught by a caring and genuine staff that deeply cares about the best interest of the children. I think that too often, it is easy to focus on the negative aspect of situations, rather than work ...  Read more

My son attended Sunny Slope for 5 years. I was always complacent and thought I was happy until he transfer to another school in the district. Sunny Slope parents do not know what they are missing out on. The principal at his new school is involved in every aspect. She knows children by name and is always ...  Read more

The principle appears afraid to stand up to parents. My child has been bullied for 3 years and nothing was ever done, except turn the other way to avoid confrontation. Students are not treated the same and rarely is there any consequences for the children that are out of control, again afraid of parents. ...  Read more

I feel that the administration and staff at Sunnyslope are very caring and supporting. As in all district schools extracurricular activities are limited because of funding. A school can only offer activties for parent involvement - but the parents need to get up to school. As for discipline students ...  Read more

The students seem to run the school by 5th and 6th grade with frequent outbursts and diruptions from students and parents alike. Lots of bullying gets overlooked in the classrooms. PTA struggles to get parent involvement, same people doing the same old things year after year. Music and art offered including ...  Read more

The student/teacher ratio seems to be off in this. My son is in a class of 28. Many times the other teacher has to fill in for the principal and his teacher takes both classes! This school has no extracurricular activies, their after school program is full, no sports teams. The teacher is very good, ...  Read more
