There are some wonderful things about this school such as teaching social responsibility and the importance of protecting our environment but they give out an incredible amount of homework (in middle school at least) and offer no tutoring/after school assistance. If your child has any difficulties academically ...  Read more

Sunnyside is a great school. The teachers are very, very nice and we get to go on a field trip each week in middle school. I have been going her since KG and love it. Teachers will go out of their way to make sure that you are getting everything. The school was a little too loose before but a couple ...  Read more

After 3 unsuccessful years at SES we have finally decided to move our child to a private school. In our opinion the first and foremost thing teachers in early grades have to do is to make children enjoy learning. The school failed on this big time. The homework assignments were easy but complex (most ...  Read more

My child is thriving at Sunnyside Environmental. I would say it's not for every child or parent. There seems to be more emphasis on the whole child, and this is definitely not a "kill and drill" environment. I love the emphasis on personal responsibility and respect within the student body. The ...  Read more

With little emphasis on academics or studying for the 3 years he was there, he consequently crashed his freshman year of high school. It took months for him to catch up with his peers from ...  Read more

We adored SES under the watchful care of Sarah Taylor. Current Principal Amy Kleiner & her cohort Rebecca Wagner are systematically changing all that was amazing and inclusive at SES...weekly MS field studies, those famous all school spring musicals, personal fundraising to bring down the (sometimes ...  Read more

SES is a school where chaos seems to reign & every day there is at least one event happening that belongs in an episode of "Portlandia". From the escaping chickens out front, to the pig they 'housed' early this year (without a permit), everything seems haphazard at best. Despite the principal's "vision", ...  Read more

SES is an amazing school. Our child LOVES going to school every day and the quality of education is outstanding. The direction on academics is progressive. You will not see worksheets or textbooks at the center of any curriculum. These children learn by doing and not just by reading about this world. ...  Read more

My child just entered kindergarten this year at Sunnyside. The experience thus far has been outstanding. My child has been safe and has developed a true love for schools and learning. I am relieved that my daughter will be at this school for her k-8. Not only is she excelling in reading, writing ...  Read more
