It's really amazing and the great part about this school is that you can start good relationships with people that you can look up to. I highly recommend people to join the IB program if they are dedicated, I think it's really great opportunity for highschool scholars who would like to exceed their fullest. I love it! especially try your absolute best to have Mr. Wolf as your English teacher, you won't regret it!

I enjoy the clean and friendly environment that Sunny Hills High School maintains on a daily basis; I enjoy being in many of my classes because of the teacher. Often, my teachers do well in educating their students with their methods--and they're pretty funny too! I feel welcomed at my school, but I do think there's not a lot of diversity.
Sunny Hills is one of the academically most advanced high schools in the area, as well as compared to many schools in not only the state but also the country. The teachers are genuine and nice who care about their students. Additionally, the students are nice and there is a huge club involvement within the school with 30+ active clubs and activities. There is also a huge sport achievement within the school, with many CIF championships and great sports involvement.

One of the biggest downfalls of the school is that the school is so large that there is a limited connection with the students. The teachers cannot actively connect to their students when there's 40+ students in all classes, as well as the guidance counselors seem more concerned with getting things done than caring about their students that they are supposed to help.

The school is also pretty run down, even with all the new additions and "clean-ups" to the gym, pool, and theater.
