General Information

Sunny View is a special place to learn, work and grow.

Sunny View Elementary is located in the beautiful foothills of western North Carolina, in a thoroughly rural setting in the northern part of Polk County. The school serves children in grades Pre-K-5. While the school opened in 1926, the first building burned and was rebuilt in 1956. The school has had additions and renovations to help serve the needs of our students. 

The faculty and staff are a dedicated, experienced group of professionals who care about doing what’s best for children. The motto for Polk County Schools is, “Doing what’s right for students”.

Sunny View Elementary is a Title 1 school. Title 1 is a federally funded program designed to help learners achieve their greatest potential. Specific students are identified and provided additional instructional support in the classroom or as part of a small group. Title 1 funding allows us to provide Parent Involvement activities throughout the year. Students in grades 3-5 are assessed in the spring using the North Carolina End of Grade Assessments in mathematics and reading. Annually 4th-grade students are assessed in writing and 5th-grade students in science. 

The Board of Education and Polk County Superintendent Aaron Greene are committed to ensuring that Polk County’s schools are preparing students for the demands of college and skilled work in the 21st Century.  Report Cards are provided for all public, charter, and alternative schools.
