Sunnybrook students are on a continuous journey of learning from JK to grade 6, in preparation for the eventual transition to grade 7 and beyond. The many and varied aspects of school life at Sunnybrook – academics, athletics, leadership, creativity, social learning, the musical and other arts – contribute to developing academic and personal confidence in our students. Our work with students is all in preparation for the move to the next phase of schooling in grade seven.
Academically, we encourage our students to approach learning for the sake of knowing and understanding, laying the foundation for lifelong learning and a growth mindset. SBS students ‘learn how to learn,’ and to love learning, allowing them to ease into new environments with confidence. Our students are prepared and ready to move onto a new school in grade seven.
We take an active role in helping parents with the search for a new school and with their transition after Sunnybrook. This assistance consists of meetings with parents, as well as interview and test preparation for students. We assist families with individualized guidance every step of the way. Over the past years we have had extreme success placing students that have been at SBS for 8 years in the school of their choice.
