My son graduated from Sunset Elementary with a really impressive academic, cultural and social experience. Language programs are exceptional, as is the hands-on advanced math and science program. Faculty are excellent. The school won the prestigious Goldman Sachs Award for Excellence in International Education as well as the Blue Ribbon and Magnet Awards, among others.
