I personally don't like the principal or Mr Romero, they don't do anything and one of the super visors, Marian, is really mean to the kids and yells at them in front of the parents. The parents don't complain because the principal doesn't do anything about it. Also, there are these women that are supposed to take care of the children when they cross the street, Nina and Rosalva, all they do is talk and gossip while the students are crossing the street with no supervision. I do agree, though, they have good teachers, except for this second grade teacher, Miss Casillas, the worst teacher I've ever met. My son didn't learn a thing from her, and it wasn't just him, other parents had the same complaint.

This school is good but it was better the past 5 years. The new principle does not do as much as mr. romero. The students really miss mr. romero. The San ysidro schools district should bring mr. romero back. Teachers that are great are Guanco, Sandez, Murffy and Hernandez. My son loves the Gate classes and Math 24 classes.

I absolutely love this school. My two children have been there for three years. The oldest one was at another school in San Ysidro and had problems. The teachers are great at Sunset. The principal is Great, he knows the kids and helps them out as much as he can. The kids are welbehaved. I think this school is the best in the community.

I love the principals and teachers involvement in your childrens education. I like that my child while she was a fourth grader her class scored the highest CST scores. More fundings are necessary to reduce the amount of students / class ratio. Excellent school thus far. Only sad part is they can't post their homework online -due to many parents limited access to internet. Those of us who have the access are being punished by those who dont.

Great school thus far. I like the teacher/principals involvement in my childs education. Only downside is that teachers can't post their class hw online due to many parents limited access to internet. I enjoy the activities that the school has. More fundings are needed for in order to reduce the children/teachers class ratio

First of all, thank you for giving me the opportunity to give my opinion about Sunset School. I'm very happy and proud of having my daughter in this school. Sunset offers to students: A beautiful campus, great biliteracy and mainstream English programs, excellent teachers, supportive office staff all of these with the leadership of Mr. Jason Romero. My daughther started in the Biliteracy program since Kinder; she is now in the Mainstream English program and with the best CST scores in the last two years. My respects to the following teachers: Luna (K), Garciadealba (1st), Garcia C. (2nd) and Lemos (3rd). Good luck in the following years to come with this economic crisis to the Sunset Team. Go Lions!!!

My daughter is in Second Grade and I love her teacher. Mrs. Sortdesanz is a great teacher. She is caring as she is strict, just enough, just the right amount at the right moment. The school is the highest ranked on the area and I love that the principal, She is the right combination of approachable but commands respect, the kids and teachers need a principal with those qualities. I hope they had more music, art, sports or tutorials after school.

This school has a very cohesive staff. You can see that they have the best interest in mind for their students. Unfortunately, this diamond in the rough cannot perform to its capacity and capability due to several factors. First, class sizes are too large in the upper grades. The district office is out of touch with the parent, student, and teacher's needs. Their performance is shady at best. The district office prefers to dictate and not collaborate. The bilingual program in this district is a great disservice to the students and there is no English Language Development program. Due to politics, this district is stagnant.

They charge money for everything. If you want to join the parents association, they charge 6.00. If your kid is late ,they want to charge you money. I believe It's unconstitutional. This is not a private school.
