Sunset School has great teachers who really care for their students. After kindergarten, the number of students in a class is a bit much. Kindergarten has 4 teacher, then after until 6th grade only has 3 teachers per grade.

I like the teachers they work hard to keep the student motivated and interested in their education, I like just about everything about the school except some of the rules. The kids can't even be kids without getting into trouble and that is not the biggest issue the school will not bend the rules to suit the situation but they will bend the rules for their own convenience and that is not right. I want my children to grow up in a safe bully free environment but at this point it is almost the schools policies that are making the teachers bullies and that is a shame especially for a school like Sunset.

The school is excellent. The entire staff works hard for all the students. I refer in particular to the principal Ms. Patterson, who sets the tone for her school. She is first-rate. Our daughter attended Sunset for 2 years and had a wonderful time. Thanks

Our son attended Sunset and we found everything about it to be exceptional. We couldn't have asked for a better foundation for his future. Even though his days there are just memories now, we miss the experiences we all had there, and still try to support the school in every way we can.

My son has accelerated above the standard score tests in his first 6 months of school because of the one on one attention from his teacher.

My daughter attended this school for 1st and 2nd grade. We had a wonderful experience at this school. Mrs. Patterson the principal was very nice and handled any situation with great care and in a timely manner. My daughter had Ms. Bakke who was a wonderful teacher. She also had Ms. Demory for second grade who is our all time favorite teacher so far. We miss you Ms. Demory. We had a great experience with this school. I would have given this school a 5 star rating if the academics were higher.

My son went to Sunset from 2nd grade through 6th grade. I found the teachers to be caring and concerned about his education. The current principal is excellent and discipline seems to be consistent. Band, orchestra, cheer, track and basketball are available. I'm impressed!

Bullying is a big problem at Sunset. Mrs. Patterson is quick to respond when it is brought to her attention. The teachers are not so great with dealing with it.

I attended sunset from kindergarten to 6th grade. It is the best school ever! To this day I still consider Sunset my home school. It will always be.

I have 3 students at Sunset this year, and I went there myself the year the school opened. I love the school. Mrs. Patterson is a wonderful principal who knows education in and out. I am a teacher myself in the Washington Elementary School District, and I would not have my children attend a school that I felt was not addressing their needs, both academically and socially.

This school is improving academically, but they have cut all extracurricular activities such as band, choir, and other clubs.

I believe that Sunset has a lot problems and the parents should be standing up with each other, not against each other. If you let your child be a bully, you are wrong. The school is concerned, although always pointing a finger at the wrong child. There is no success where there is no positive reinforcement. I have never heard any good comments standing in the office or outside. My child has been pushed by teachers, made fun of by teachers and let down by teachers. Someone needs to rearrange the faculty. Concerned.

I have a daughter in first grade and a niece in kindergarten at Sunset and both are doing work from the next grade. Their reading skills and math skills are excellent. I think Sunset is a wonderful school and am glad that my daughter and niece are able to attend.

When I have discussed concerns with teachers about my childs performance they were not really concerened because the rest of the class was at a low level. To them it was ok if my son was a little behind because the rest of the school was. No type of encouragement. If we as parents are trying hard to help our children shouldn't the school and the teachers also try harder.

There were a few problems here, but those were mostly about children in the after school program. Sunset is a cute little school, and the rules are enforced. I don't know if this has changed since my daughter went here, but the only problem I have with this school is that they keep the classes separate during lunch, and have band class during lunch.
