Open Quote I transferred to Sunrise second semester my sophomore year (2008-2009 school year). If I could pick one word to describe it, I'd say "average." The honors programs are alright, and the regular courses - as far as core classes like English, Math, etc - are just the same as the rest of the district. That is, sub-par.

Some good points about Sunrise are that it's got a great student paper and yearbook, along with an intro to journalism class that's top notch. Courses like ceramics, drama, marketing, photography, and media are taught using up-to-date equipment and hands on training. Sunrise also offers fire science and auto classes (which are unique, Sunrise being the only school in the district which currently offers them) but no culinary classes. For culinary training, you have to take a class at Liberty High School, which is about a half mile away from Sunrise - the school will take care of transportation and registration for you.

The teachers are average. There's a wide array of clubs and sports to join, and something going on nearly everyday after the final bell. Overall, it's not bad, but I've attended much more impressive schools. It's about as good as it gets for Arizona, though. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
