Strive Prep Sunnyside turned out to be one amazing school despite all the negative comments, yes you might have those students that disrespect other students and staff but what school doesn't, a lot of individuals would say this is one of the worst schools ever but remember you are your child's first Educator whatever they are taught at home they will carry with them throughout their lifetime parents love nothing more than to blame the teachers and school system for the attitudes their child carries, wrong I have 3 children attending this school and none of the three have yet to disrespect any of the teachers nor will they do so in the near future, teachers and staff are not given enough credit for all the hard work they put into educating these young individuals, teach your children how to respect not just one but all adults otherwise they are going to be headed down the wrong path.

My child attended this school in 2008. It was the worst experience. I witnessed students being allowed to curse other students as well as staff and teachers. I was appauled at the level of disrespect tolerated by the school, with consequences only being points taken away. I would not recommend this school to the worst of students.
