Sonshine Christian Elementary School is a place where children grow spiritually, intellectually, physically, emotionally, and socially in a safe environment where they are shown Christ’s love on a daily basis. Teachers and staff at Sonshine Christian Elementary are first and foremost born again believers who understand the importance of modeling Christ like behavior to their students. Students at Sonshine Christian Elementary are given opportunities to grow in their spiritual relationship with Jesus, their personal integrity, professional accomplishment, and Godly compassion for their fellow man.
Small class sizes enable teachers and staff to meet the needs of all their students and to track progress, concerns, and successes. Parents have the primary responsibility for the education of their children. Sonshine Christian Schools and Faith Baptist Church believe this biblical principle. Working with parents to provide a high quality Christian education for every child is of primary importance to all of us. This partnership means that parents are communicated to frequently regarding their child’s progress and any special needs their child may have. Parents are also asked to communicate any concerns or needs they have regarding their students and given opportunities to participate in and out of school in their child’s learning.
Our staff is devoted to equipping each child with a biblical, Christian worldview, and with academic skills that will last a lifetime. In addition to being born again believers, teachers and staff are fully certified in their areas of expertise and have been trained in the latest research based “best practices” for educators.
