Teachers use guiding questions as a starting point and encourage students to wonder, explore and investigate.

Dear Sunnybrae Parents,

 I am very excited to join the Sunnybrae team as the new principal for the upcoming school year and collaborate with you so that our students can receive the best education through the International Baccalaureate program. I believe in educating the whole child so that every student can reach their social, emotional, and academic potential and together we can make this possible for all our students. Some of the things that excite me the most about the Sunnybrae community is its great diversity and values around supporting our students to become global citizens with critical thinking skills. In a rapid changing world, these skills are essential.

I look forward to meeting you and your children very soon so that we can make the 2018-19 school year an exciting year. Below, please find important information for the beginning of the school year. 

Sincerely,

Aleyda Barrera-Cruz

Principal
