Mr. Keith Miller,  Director of Education and Executive Principal at Sunmarke School shares his delight:

“To attain a ‘Very Good’ overall judgement within 2.5 years of opening is a feat that very few schools have achieved within the region. This DSIB judgment, together with the numerous other marvellous outcomes accomplished by our students, is indicative of all of the hard work put in by our pupils, the full support of our families, the patronage of our Board of Directors and the dedication, commitment and skills of our teachers.”

  • “Students are highly motivated and have a positive enthusiasm for learning.”
  • “Students show empathy and sensitivity to the needs of others, in keeping with the school’s inclusive nature.”
  • “Students in all phases demonstrate an excellent work ethic and well-developed social responsibilities. They take on leadership roles, initiate projects and participate in a number of volunteering opportunities that benefit the school and local community.”
  • “Positive Education provides students with the inspiration to achieve their full potential and flourish within a safe, well- managed school community.”
