Sonrise Christian is an awesoem school, we just love Sonrise my daughter has attended since preschool and it has been such a blessing to have her there. The teachers are increadable and caring and her spiritual growth is excellent. Academically she is excelling and she just loves her school.

Sonrise Christian is an incredibly caring, spiritually uplifting, and academically challenging environment for both of my children. I have a child in K-8 and also a preschooler attending currently. Yes, Sonrise still misses Dr. Burlingame who passed in 2010. But after several years of healing, growth and a vision, the mission at Sonrise has never been stronger. The leadership team is excellent, the teachers are caring, faithful, experienced and effective. The Laptop Learning program is amazing--children from preschool through 8th grade gain experience with technology and 3rd-8th grade has their own personal Laptops. You don't need to look further then the students and families to see the heart of Sonrise: it's all about family. Students LOVE being here. Parents linger after school, volunteer often, and are KIND to one another, EVEN *gasp* in the parking lot!! The school is big enough to offer things like diversity, athletics, performing arts and many activities, and still small enough to truly feel like a loving family. Even with all of this, there is always room for improvement, but the leaders actually listen to you and make themselves available. We love Sonrise Christian School!

Sonrise Christian Preschool is an amazing preschool where each of my four children have been blessed to attend. The teachers and staff there genuinely love children and have prepared them well for elementary school. Giving them a good start for their future.

Disappointing. Next year my kids are going "up the road" a bit to a Christian school that is highly recommended by friends. Sorry Sonrise, but your legalistic view of what Christianity is, your so-so academics, your dark, dingy library with limited selections, and your failed laptop program are enough to make me want to move my kids to a better place. I must say, Dr. Burlingame was amazing, but he is retiring..... :(

Starting the day with pray and flag, knowing that Gods hand is in everything they learn all day give our son great comfort and strength. We feel privileged to send our son to Sonrise.

I am so disappointed with this school. We have two children in it and have had poor experiences with both. They are good students, but the quality of teaching is poor. The curriculum and method of teaching is out of date. The teachers seem to control rather than teach. We will go to a neighboring Christian school that has fewer students and teachers who are credentialed and are on the cutting edge of educational research.

Sonrise has been the best decision I could have made for educating my children from kinder to 8th grade. This school is advanced in their curriculum, has a fantastic sports program, and develops a strong spiritual foundation in our children. My daughter has graduated and is now in a public high school where she is extremely advanced in comparison to her peers. My son graduates this year and feels very confident in his abilities and is ready to take on high school with success. This school develops an amazing strength in our children. They graduate knowing they have the tools necessary to be successful in the world and have a strong christian foundation that keeps them safe from peer pressures that they may experience. I love Sonrise. What an amazing gift it has been to my family.

I am so glad that my daughter goes to Sonrise - she is reading well, can do Math very well and is growing up the Christian way. All the staff are very pro-active and are true advocates for the children. And this motivates parents to participate better in the upbringing of their children. I have been recommending this school to all my friends and I hope their children get the opportunity my daughter has.

Our 3 children came from a PUBLIC School. Sonrise is the best thing that ever happen to our children. They love Jesus, are strong in academics, and in character. Very Balanced.

Most of the teachers really love the kids--especially in the junior high. Their graduation service is exceptional--a real tear-jerker. They have excellent administrators and strong academics.

The school provides many opportunities for the student to learn outside of the classroom through trips that are relevant to their studies. The school seems to continually look to improve the cirriculum a.

As a parent of two children that attended and graduated from Sonrise Christian School I could not have been more satisfied. Not only did they receive a quality academic foundation, but they thrived in an environment that nurtured them and supported them throughout their nine years. They grew e there.

Sonrise is a fantastic school. Academically very strong. They also teach kids good morals and ethics. The teachers genuinely care and are very responsive to any questions/concerns a parent or student mat have. The student body is very mixed ethnicly. They have a great sports program and offer other activities for the kids to be involved in. They have an acting group that puts on weekly productions and so many other things to offer. It is a truly great place and I would not hesitate to highly recommend this awesome school. It is the best kept secret in the San Gabriel Valley.

My son attended Sonrise from K-6th, until we moved out of state. He was farther advanced than any of the students in his new 7th grade class. I would recommend Sonrise to any parent.

Both of my children graduated from Sonrise and went on to great success in high school and college. The teachers are effective, loving, and caring and the curriculum is strong and biblically-based. My children received an excellent spiritual and educational foundation at Sonrise.

The school has ineffective teachers and is not the panacea one would expect of a 'private' school.

I was very unhappy with Sonrise Christian School. On more than one occassion I tried to talk to my child's teacher and I found him to be disinterested and even cold. I sat in on a few different classes and I found there was no classroom control. I couldn't concentrate with all the ruckus, so I am sure that the students couldn't. I felt like I threw my money away.

My child attended from k-8. We loved this school. The teachers and staff really care about the children. The academics are top rate and the kids leave the school with a real love for Jesus and respect for their fellow human beings. I highly recommend this school.
