Mission

Sunnyside offers a developmentally appropriate curriculum, based on the Colorado Academic Standards, to all students in preschool through fifth grade.  Sunnyside strives to make a rewarding impact in each child's life by ensuring they all reach their highest potential.  Here at Sunnyside, we believe that the improved academic achievement of each student is a shared responsibility among all the adults in the child's life and the child.  By working together, we provide our students with a strong foundation for success.
