Quality teaching, small classes, and an inspired curriculum, set within technology rich, purpose built learning centers have led to our long history of outstanding achievement. We strongly believe that our ultimate advantage is the individual care and attention we give our students.
Since 1958, generations of students, staff and parents have been proud to be a part of our community. With a beautiful single campus, we offer the advantages of a seamless education from Kindergarten to Grade 10. Our unique location, provides a fresh and healthy educational environment and has inspired our WAVES priorities.
Sunrise High Girls. Remarkable Women.™
This statement has become a powerful message of pride and encouragement for our students and our community. We are a proud school, but one with a true global outlook. Our aim is to make a positive contribution to women in society by developing compassionate, connected, articulate young women who enjoy learning and have the confidence to succeed no matter where their journey takes them.
'Sunrise High' owes its existences to a group of life-long educationists with a vision for the future.
'Sunrise High' true to its name had humble beginnings. It was an effort to uplift the children of the weaker section in a remote corner of the city, Mehdipatnam, and to expose them to modern compulsions and challenges.
It was this little effort way back in 1958 by Late Mrs. Akbari Rauf, that has taken concrete shape.
The school is affiliated to the State Board of Andhra Pradesh, India. It was first recognized by the Govt.of AP in 1963. The first batch of students appeared for the 7th class common examination in 1974. From a middle school, Sunrise was upgraded to a high school exclusively for girls in 1991. The school started with a humble strength of 60 students and has about 700 children on roll today, with a team of about 45 well qualified and experienced teachers and has completed 49 years of service in imparting education. Every year the students of classes 7th and 10th (SSC) pass out in flying colours. The school board members and the parent committee work together for the betterment of the school.
We at 'Sunrise High' are committed to providing high quality education with emphasis on education, discipline and mutual respect. Besides this, extra curricular activities are also addressed including but not limited to sports, public speaking and computer literacy.
Our parents feel confident in entrusting their daughters to us as part of a very special community; staff feel engaged and encouraged to achieve the best for each and every girl; and most importantly, every student is given the confidence and support to achieve her best. Not all independent schools are the same.
As you would expect, we offer all the advantages of a quality independent school, from excellent teaching and small classes in purpose built, technology-rich learning centers, and co-curricular opportunities. We provide our students with important skills to manage their lives, to make informed choices and take calculated risks, and the self-awareness and self-belief to deal with different challenges and pressures.
There is considerable research evidence to show that girls benefit from a quality all girls' environment, from academic success and personal interactions, to building self-confidence and active participation in many aspects of the curriculum. Stereotyping of subjects and careers is limited in girls' only schools, so girls can feel confident there are no impediments to their choices, whether they are in academia, sport, music or many other co-curricular areas. This also extends to their choices of career paths. All activities are open to girls: they participate, influence and lead for genuine achievement.
The energy that drives us to succeed vibrates around every corner. The School is filled with staff and students who have passion, dedication and perseverance. We have high expectations and take great pride and joy in exceeding them. Sunrise High is a place of friendship, of support, of enterprise and inspiration. It is a place of leadership, learning and wonder; and a place like no other. This is why we are the school of choice for girls' education. There is certainly something very special about our School and I very much look forward to welcoming you to this unique community.
Life long educationists, Mrs and Mr Abdul Rauf were true visionaries more than 60 years ago, and understood the importance and need for an educational institution for the community. May Allah (swt) grant them jannah for their marvelous efforts.
