Open Quote My son has gone to sunrise for the last 3 years and i love the school and the teachers. I receive emails from his teachers whenever there is a problem and most times just to let me know how he is doing in class. Sunrise is a very good school. Close Quote

Open Quote My daughter is a first grader at Sunrise. I knew when I put her in school, I wanted her in the Puyallup School District. I have been very pleased with this school. Her teaher has been great communicating with me about any concerns she is having regarding my daughters behavior, performance, etc. My daughter needed additional help with reading, so they enrolled her in a reading program run through Good Samaritan and she has excelled. This school also has many activities like movie nights, math night, bingo night, to really get the kids and parents involved. When my daughter has had to go in to see the school nurse, they have been great about calling me and genuinely seem to care about her well being. I feel that the only down side to this school is that the building is very outdated, but that is very petty and not a concern. I would recommend this school to anyone. 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.
