My daughter is in 1st grade at SVE, and it has been a wonderful experience. She is in the dual language program and we have been very impressed with the program and the school. From the principal, the teachers, counselor to houskeeping there is a strong sense of community and dedication to the students. I feel that my participation and involvement in my child education is welcome and encouraged. And I really appreciate that!

I have a kindergartner at SVE and at first I was nerves about public school, but have been so happy with her teachers and the staff and the community. I love the Dual -language program she is in. I feel like parent participation is getting strong each week and that the school is very welcoming and thankful for all we do.

I made one phone call to their main office after being notifiied by the main AISD office that Sunset Valley Elementary School is the one they are suppose to be attending. An administrator called me back like with 5 minutes from my message leaving. Went to the school and all I can say is WOW. I'm so ready to be a proud parent of this school. Yay! Yay! for my children is all I can say! :)

Great teachers, office staff and administration. All are helpful and want to keep parents informed and involved. This school has gone above and beyond to help my child develop both academically and emotionally. She is doing MUCH better now that she has a caring team of professionals to meet her needs. I wouldn't think of taking her a different school!

I love helping Sunset Valley elementary because of its ethnic makeup. They are making great strides at our school...every year the education gets better.


Posted October 27, 2008

There is a major lack of communication between parents and teachers. As a parent, I find myself calling teachers to get answers because I am concerned about my child's education but I get no response unless it is the teacher that wants something.

Personal experience: This school may be besetted by low income griefs but I saw many parents very concerned for their children's educational welfare. The staff was all right until I showed my displeasure at a safety issue and their lack of foresight on an educational problem my child had, thereafter I was met with insolence and haughtiness. From then on, no amount of my reaching out to them could bridge the gap that appeared. I was called in for a meeting and was surrounded by all manner of staff that ranged from the principal to their lower echleon, making me feel as if I were on trial. Their unfriendly demeanor truly concerned me. The school as a whole has bright future and much promise, I wish them every success.

This is a good school but has many battles based on the low income (Title I) underpriveleged student body. It is small compared to most elementaries. Low staff turnover. Excellent principal management and leadership skills. The staff seem to look at the school as extended family and each embraces the entire student body.

Pre-K and Kindergarden are great but the 4th and 5th grade are lacking in true teacher ' I care about your child feel'.

We transfered our daughter in to Sunset Valley and never regretted it. It's a great school, and well worth attending!

Posted January 9, 2005

There are several excellent teachers and yet there are just as many if not more that are obviously burnt out and participate only enough to recieve a pay check. Those excellent teachers and the wonderful student body is what keeps as many student from transferring out as those that do. The loss in talent is a facter in its 'acceptable' rating. Leadership, staff participation and parent involvement is low and a lot less then what its students deserve.

Teachers are fully committed to making sure their respective students are prepared for the following grade and are providing them with a solid educational foundation. I was overly impressed with the instruction of Ms. Sanchez, a first grade bilingual teacher, provided to her class. She is a quality, dedicated teacher.

Posted February 13, 2004

Sunset Valley has seen my son through three school years and my daughter beginning her schooling. I feel that the teachers, staff, and principal are all very dedicated to the students that attend. Smaller class sizes make for more personal involvement with the students and it shows with the commments my children make to me after school.

I have a daughter who just left SSV for middle school and 2 younger children still attending. I am very impressed by the incentives offered to the kids for their hard work. It gives them something extra to work for. The teachers have been very easy to work with and they challenge my children's minds and encourage them to do better.
