This school has a preschool that is wonderful. The teachers are so aware and great with the kids. My son loves it. He always has something new to talk about with me. The class is also very racially diverse which is great it just adds to the new things he's learning and helps him become a more well rounded person that will be able to happily exist in Southern California. Definitely a great preschool and two amazing teachers.

Both my kids went to Sunset Lane through sixth grade, and we were very happy with the school. Teachers varied from good to great. The period when our kids were there coincided with California's abandonment of class size reduction, and the playground became a lot more crowded than it used to be: there are both more kids and less open space (because of portables being added). The school is majority Korean, and although that made my kids a minority, we saw it as a plus because of the parents' high expectations for their kids. A few kids have soaked up prejudices from their first-generation parents about race and religion, but in general the kids all seem to get along. My kids had both Korean and non-Korean friends. The old principal was more hands-on than the new one. Traffic safety is a problem, and I would like to see the school work harder to support and ensure the safety of kids who walk or ride bikes. I'm amazed by the number of gripes here a graduation ceremony -- what a non-issue for a grade school.

My child was the minority....I had my son in K & pulled him out b/c he was the minority & all the Korean kids only played with other Korean kids. My son tired to make friends but they just shined him off. It is really frustrating to live in a good area for school & the Sunset Lane School is 99% Korean.. It you are Korean I guess it would be the school to go to!!!

I am absolutely grateful for the education that my child had received for her entire time of enrollment here at Sunset Lane. The teachers have all been very warm and nurturing. As a parent volunteer, I have been quite secure about the environment that is charged with the care and wellbeing of my child.

My daughter went to this school for 3 years: 4th 5th and 6th grade and I do not recommend this school at all. Here are my concerns: A teacher she had for 5th and 6th grade was very bad. That teacher only supported korean students This teacher was all about favortism. The teacher would only pay attention to his favorite students my daughter said that it was like the rest of the students do not exist. I went to have a talk with him and he was very rude he does not have respect for others! He does not like any other students that are not his race or korean. He likes his Korean (Favorites) students because they buy very expensive gifts and not only once in a while but every month! We had a awards assembly at the end of 6th grade which was not right because they only let students who get an award come there and students that are hard working and deserve the award did not get them He only gave those award to his favorites. Also in the report card, he did not pay attention and look at scores on the tests and assignments he just gave them the grades he wanted to give. If you are going to this school than I would change my mind right away because most of the teachers are like this.

Satisfied with all curriculum. But, homework is too much. Even I have to do homework with my son after coming back home.

The teachers here are great and so is the school staff. One of my kids attended this school K-6, and have another in 3rd grade, but I have several issues with this school. Major issue is the Principal. I'd say there are many parents that would agree. I don't think the tearchers like her very much either. Another complaint, they don't have award assemblies where parents and other students are involved and NO GRADUATION CEREMONY FOR 6th grader's moving on the JR. High!!!???

My name is kevin and i have two kids that go to this school. well, if i have chance to choose the school again. i won't send my kids to this school. for example, most parents want to see their kid's graduation but the school invite only some parents who get the award... i have no idea this such a school teach the kids' beheavior or make judgement the kids' beheavior. the school doesn't care about the other student feelings who don't get the award and they couldn't find their parents at graduate. ALL STUDENTS SHOULD BE TREATED EQUAL !!!!!!!! do you think they are still happy ?? it's totally nonsence!! a huge clap to other students for taking it for 6 long years and finally graduate from THEM. KID, I'M SO SORRY AND I LOVE YOU SO MUCH.

Our teachers are the best! They strive to give our children a well- rounded academic program, as well as attention to the arts, science, and technology. We are very lucky to have such a wonderful staff. Our Principal and the office and custodial staff go above and beyond every day. I appreciate them so much! And the parents are so involved that it creates a warm, family environment that benefits all.

Outstanding teachers balance the need for tough academic standards with allowing kids to still have fun. My son is now in the 6th grade and each of his teachers have been great if not outstanding.

My son has been attending Sunset Lane for 5 years. I have been very happy with the teachers and the administrators. Most of the teachers that I know of are very good teachers who have a great open communication line with the parents. The parent involvement in the school is great.

I transferred my children to this school because it had better test scores. I was so surprised at how much better this school was in every possible way.

My child is special needs, and went to Sunset Lane for 2nd thru 6th grades. The staff and principal were wonderful to work with. The school offers many activities and the education my son received was better than I had expected from a public school.

Not Happy With This School or it's Management. Their idea in conforming to the 'no Child Left Behind' initiative in my opinion is nothing more than hassle the Parent until they change schools. They impose a schedule of before/after 'classes' that to me are unhealthy by exhausting those who attempt to abide. I also question the 'success rate' of these 'tutor' sessions & how many students actually met their goals? So you have new construction/temporary classrooms one end, locked gates the other?
