School Notes

  • SunCoast provides a close learning community where each student is valued, and families can feel connected. Children have the benefit of small classes with a teacher:student ratio of 1:15. At SunCoast, all children grow into students who have a close connection to their school, their teachers and classmates. SunCoast students from preschoolers through middle school students are interested in doing well academically and all play an integral part in the life of our school. Middle School and elementary grades here allow students to build strong, lifelong friendships without the pressures of overcrowding and unwanted stress. Students, while they welcome the challenges of high school, are truly saddened about graduating and leaving behind important relationships. SunCoast is a unique, small, and vital school. We welcome all to join our thriving community.
