Mrs. Holland is wonderful and truly helps develop her students. She is considerate and patient and builds individual relationships with her students as well. My son loves her and I know will continue to run and give her hugs as he gets older and continues attending this school.
My son began attending Sunset for Kindergarten this past fall and has done wonderfully. He loves his teacher and his classmates and loves going to school in general. The principal and vice-principal are very involved and all the kids loves them. I was a little wary due to the previous bad reviews but they are from years ago and the school seems to be getting better and better. We are very happy there!
His teacher this year is the Teacher of the Year. She is amazing with the kids and has great help in her assistants. She communicates well with the parents and from the times I have been present in the classroom during the lessons she truly deserves the title of Teacher of the Year.
Weekly homework and a monthly special assignment seem to be the perfect amount for pre-k. Its a simple 1 page homework that my son can now complete without any explanation. He knows on Monday when we get home the first thing he does is his homework and he now starts without any prompting. On the monthly special assignments he is getting more creative each time.
Having a consistent teaching style and schedule helps young students develop these skills. Knowing that we are going to do homework on Monday nights, the first thing my son wants to do is finish his homework so he can do something fun. He asks questions about his homework that make me feel like he truly understands what he is learning.
All children are treated equally and so the students are expected to treat each other the same. There are obvious friendships but from the times I have been in the classroom there is never anyone that feels left out.
I believe that the parental and family influence plays a larger part of developing these Pre-K is really early to develop those skills but I know my son has built new friendships and relationships in his first year. He has donated books to his classroom to read and has asked me to send extra money in for the days when they have a special treat and get to buy snacks.
My son is a pre-k student at Sunset for the 2015-2016 school year. He loves his teacher and looks forward to going to school every day. He knows what is expected of him and does his weekly homework without complaint and even looks forward to the special projects that comes home. He is excited to do the nightly reading and sometimes even adds an extra book. The faculty and staff at the school are great and I know my son is in good hands every day. I am a very involved parent and wish more parents would get involved with their students but overall our first year at Sunset has been amazing.
