About

Sunnyside School of International Studies

Magnet School of Excellence


The educational program at Sunnyside Elementary is based on the Indiana Academic Standards, with a focus on achievement, integrity and service. Sunnyside Elementary provides excellent educational opportunities for students in grades one through six. Students attending Sunnyside Elementary experience an exciting learning environment that is based on the work of several well-known researchers.

Sunnyside will prepare your student for a world without boundaries… a world full of opportunity! Our children need to become far more responsible, creative and tolerant of differences…they need to own their learning. They need to increase their ability to think for themselves, take initiative, get along with others and solve problems. Today's education must be about bringing the world within reach. Today's students must be globally conscious and internationally minded.
