You let your teachers literally tear students down. Faculty always on the teachers side. I'm so glad my children are out of this school this year. Just awful!!!!
If this review had been written 10yrs ago, my views would have been great. Sunshine Elementary has gone from being a good group of over achievers that took pride in the students to a bunch of under achievers that are only concerned about a TITLE & WALKIE TALKIE. Instead of being in the classroom they create jobs that are supposed to enhance the learning abilities of the students who may be struggling in certain areas, when in fact the students are not getting the help they need. Now there are a few good strong willed teachers at Sunshine, but not enough to go around, therefor the doors are constantly revolving. You have teachers leaving in the MIDDLE of the school year to accept jobs at other schools because the administration doesn't know how to treat the staff. This principal needs to put on HIS BIG BOY PANTS and take charge, before one of the two women he has working under him, takes his job right from under his nose. If its not too late I would advise you to strongly consider other schools in the area before choosing Sunshine Elementary. While there may be one or two good teachers on each grade level; its not a guarantee that your child will end up on the winning end.
1. Kids get recess taken away, while the county has deemed it an inappropriate practice.2. Teachers call you back about 3 weeks after you leave a message, too little too late, meanwhile they wonder why a child is struggling.3. My daughter's teacher said "they cut out reading due to funding", who in their right mind will would remove reading time from school!?4. They only teach the FCAT, literally! Your child will learn ABSOLUTELY NO real life skills here, but they will learn how to take a test and turn on a computer.
Our grandaughter goes to Sunshine! She is in the gifted program! We are very involved and we LOVE everything about this school!!! Patti Price
