Bright Elementary School received an “A” school rating the last 12 out of 14 years.
The Sunman Dearborn Community School parents and patrons should be very pleased and proud of the outstanding ISTEP+ results for all of the Sunman Dearborn schools. This “school grade” is a reflection of the hard work of our students, parents and staffs. While we are proud of these results we cannot be satisfied – all must continuously strive to better every day in every way. We must also keep in mind that the ISTEP+ test results are just one of many indicators of success upon which we measure the strength of our schools.
Kindergarten Registration: The office will be open from 8:00-3:10 for those parents needing to complete the registration forms. To enter Kindergarten, a child must be 5 years old on or before August 1, 2015. An official birth certificate from the county courthouse where the child was born must be presented at registration or the child will not be enrolled.
