Open Quote Teacher bullied children, principal is ok with it. School board will not contact us. They did not follow their own posted agenda for incidents. Now they have changed the rules to deny access to their investigation. Close Quote

Open Quote Sonnesyn School is a great environment to have your children placed in. The staff and faculty are caring to the children and their families. They exhibit a genuine concern for the needs of the children and their families. Inclusive and considerate of all cultures. Who could ask for anything more in an elementary school. 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.
