Open Quote We love Sunset Hill! Tech forward, kind teachers, always there to help. Mrs. Keffler is a great principal. The nature center is a huge added bonus - especially being so close to the city. Would highly reccomend Sunset, it is one of the less known Wayzata schools - I like it that way! A hidden gem :). Close Quote

Open Quote Love Sunset, the teachers have been wonderful to my son who has started Kindergarten this year. They have a great reading program and most of the staff including the principal know all the kids names. The principal is very nice and approachable.
The class sizes are small which is great for the one on one attention the kids need. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
