School Reviews

5   11/15/2012
I have grandchildren, a total of 7 of them that have attended this school. The teachers have been absolutely wonderful with all of the children. We have some that are highly intelligent and some that need a little extra help and they have made these kids a success. They were so supportive to a grandson that lost his mother, the teachers and the staff not only care about their jobs, but they care about their children. They encourage the children to do their best and they challenge them if they need challenged. THANK YOU SUNSET ELEMENTARY!!! Jim and Joyce Hacsi.......Grandchildren Xavier Encinias, Elizabeth Rodriguez, Calista Mestas, Tori Hacsi, Lisa Hacsi, Jada Jones and Kaya Jones.
