I think Sunnyside Highschool is a wonderful school to attend. A student will do well in Sunnyside just like in any other school they just need to apply themselves. The teachers are great there are a few bad seeds but there are always going to be bad seeds. I hope that what I said about my school gave you a different perfective about Sunnyside. Go Blue Devils!!!
