My daughter loves this school! They office staff is hands down the best! Every teacher she has ever had helped her every step of the way. I volunteered in classes many times and they are so respectful, and understanding towards the kids. The way they teach you can tell they have a passion for teaching.
Great school for our kids. All the staff and parents are caring, enthusiastic, encouraging, supportive, and friendly. It's a lovely community and we feel lucky to live near this school. Lots of parent involvement -- I went on one trip (an overnight stay on a tall ship) and the staff there said they had never seen so many parents in a group.
Sunset Hills is not just a school, but a community that works together to insure our the students have a safe, caring learning environment. The parents, teachers, staff and administration all work together taking the best interest of the students to heart. Volunteerism is very high on parents' priorities at Sunset Hills and that is reflected in the excellence at the school. The teachers, staff and administration take learning very seriously and they themselves are continually take training and classes to bring the latest innovations to Sunset Hills. In the past few years, test scores have improved tremendously and have been recognized by the school District.
This school could be a great school. But it's run by a activist parents who have complete control over who teaches their child. Sadly, you'll not see diversity and balanced classes because of it. Read an article today reminded me of this school. It says "The parents on the PTA gave the principal what she wanted for the school with money from the PTA coffers, and the principal gave these parents the teachers they wanted for their little darlings. It was nauseating,and unfair to kids whose parents were not in the "in" crowd."But this can backfire. A child may want the more soft-spoken or less demanding teacher, but derive the most benefit from the teacher that pushes them just a bit more to achieve at a higher level than the child would work without the added push. You never know, that non-favorite teacher may be the one your child remembers for having put them on the road to success.
