Open Quote This is our first year at Sunset and our kindergartner is doing great. Her teacher is fantastic. All the teachers are, and the substitutes too! Administration is top notch, PTO keeps everyone informed and they are so organized. I feel like she is in a very good place and am so happy she is a part of Sunset. Close Quote

Open Quote Sunset is an incredible school. They have an excellent principal and administration, and the PTO has got to be at the top in the state. There is a huge amount of parental involvement in this school, which certainly complements the staff. The teachers are empowered to do what is best for their kids and allowed to be creative. I highly recommend Sunset! 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.
