    "The vice principal is absolutely unprofessional and not understanding of parents' unique circumstances. She simply does not care or want to be bothered by "babysitting" students that attend Sunrise. I am extremely sickened by her lack of empathy and rude demeanor. Sunrise would be a better school without this horrible vice principal."

    "Do not send your child to this school. Rating it one star as it wont rate lower. Just horrible. We encountered uncaring, unknowledgable teachers who taught only to the test and a completely clueless principal and administrative staff. The principal tried to intimidate us into not calling the police when a gang of male students surrounded my child and friends on the sidewalk in front of the school. We called anyways. After that our children suddenly became discipline and conduct problems. We actually had one teacher tell us our child deserved an F for questioning any teacher. The best part of this school was leaving."

    "I think that this school on the most part is pretty good. Mr. J of Social Studies is one of the best teachers I have ever had. He goes way beyond the standards with mind engaging projects on thought provoking discussions. Would NOT recommend the DLC to most students. If you're really into computers and that sort of thing, its perfect for you, but if you want to have a fun time socially stay away. The math programs go up to Geometry, and give a high school credit for Algebra and Geometry. All of the current math teachers are great. Overall, great school."

    "I am a student in the gifted Digital Learning Center at Sunrise and all the teachers (except for Mr. Graham, Mrs. Binder, Ms. Leland, and Mrs. Grobmeier) know nothing but what is in the book which is fine for students in standard classes but for gifted education students it is not okay. All in all it is 5 out of 5 for the Gifted teachers and -10 out of 5 for the standard teachers."

    "Three great 5-star teachers: B. of 7th grade digital learning center; G. of algebra; B. of gifted English. The rest we encountered were rule-obssessed mind-numbing mediocrities that seemed satisfied to teach to a low-normal level, pretty much just going through the motions. 7th grade DLC was the saving grace, but 8th grade DLC was a disappointing flop. A credential to teach gifted children was demonstrated to be no indication of competence at doing so. Our child encountered no bullying (other than occassional mild bluster from one clownishly dressed adult of probable diminished capacity charged with keeping order). The campus appeared peaceful and largely lawful, unsurprising given its location, although there was at least on burglary of DLC equipment."
