    "Sunrise is an excellent school because the principal is professional and understanding, the campus is very clean, and the campus is very safe. As a parent, I feel welcome and valued on the campus. I am very happy that my twin daughters are attending Sunrise because there is no other middle school that they would like to attend that would be as much fun!"

    "What has happened to this school? When we moved to this neighborhood 18 years ago ready to start a family we factored school ratings into our decision. The Elementary School was ranked high (Liberty is great!) and Sunrise was ranked high. Since that time Sunrise has continued to fall further and further in ratings and this year is at an all-time low. Many of my friends have sent their kids there, only to be very disappointed (and many of them transferred to Desert Shadows mid-year or for 8th grade). I learned from that and sent my child to Desert Shadows, which has been a wonderful experience. But I continue to hear from other families attending Sunrise how poor it is. From what I understand, D. S. middle school now has huge waitlists because word has gotten around. How is this one school supposed to support the demand? Why isn't PVUSD addressing the ever-growing issues with Sunrise? It is not fair that families in our district have to be turned away from a good education at a school, when 1 mile away there is a school that could be great too. Please PVUSE, pay attention to the issues at Sunrise and take action to fix them!!!"

    "Sunrise is a sinking ship. My child is a graduate of the DLC. The 7th grade DLC is very good, though the homework is too heavy (4 to 5 hours/night). The 8th grade DLC is horrific. If you need to stay in the public school system for middle school try Explorer or Desert Shadows. There is a reason Sunrise has low enrollment. A lot of the good staff members have chosen to leave. The new assistant principal was a s.s. teacher who did not even know his students' names by the end of the year!"

    "Worst school I have ever seen. I am a former educator, and I sent my daugter to Sunrise for seventh grade. She came home everday and begged me to let her switch schools. The dress code is not at all enforced and bullying is a major problem. Unless your child is in the DLC, the standards for their performance are extemely low and the teachers are unenthusiastic. My daughter was teased because she bought her shoes at Target and because she did not have a boyfriend at 12 years old. Both the students and the staff of Sunrise are horrible."
