Open Quote My son unfortunately goes to this school, and it's the primary reason we're in the process of putting our house on the market and moving to a better school district. The Zero out of 5 star ranking seems about right, and the falling rankings the last 4 years seems accurate. From 698th out of 1004 Elementary schools in 2010, to recently 982 out of 1023, it's pitiful.

I understand the school faces a lot of challenges due to the low economic status of a lot of its students, and the high amount of students where English is a second language. They actually do announcements over the intercoms in Spanish.

My son is bored in class, he finishes his weeks’ worth of homework in one night, he's not being challenged or excited in anyway.

Unfortunately I feel this school is only going to get worse, if that's even possible. Hopefully we can get Sunnycrest and the Federal Way SD in our rear view mirror very soon. Close Quote

Open Quote Sunnycrest has added dual language to their educational options. They use both accelerated reader and Fountas & Pinnell reading scales to asses and elevate the learning experience of the student. The staff and leadership at the school put the children's education and well being first. 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.

About Immunization Rates:
Kindergarten Immunization Rates: This graph shows the percent of students in the school who have all of the required doses for the vaccine type for kindergarten entry (complete). The following vaccines are required for Washington State kindergarten entry: DTaP (Diphtheria, Tetanus and Pertussis), Hep B (Hepatitis B), MMR (Measles, Mumps and Rubella), Polio and Varicella (chickenpox). The data comes from schools reporting to the Department each school year. Schools report total counts of students based on each student’s Certificate of Immunization Status, which is parent-reported and is not health care provider verified. The goal line is the national Health People 2020 target of 95% completion for these vaccines for school age children.
Protected Students: The number and percent of students in the school reported to have all required vaccinations for their age and grade.
Students with plan: The number and percent of students in the school with a temporary approved plan for getting caught-up on required vaccinations. These students can remain in school if they follow this plan.
Students with exemption: The number and percent of students in the school reported to have any exemption type for at least one vaccine.
Unknown: The number and percent of students whose immunization status is not known. These students do not fall into any other category – they may be missing required vaccines, but have no temporary delay plan or exemptions. Students with no signed CIS on file are also counted here.
