Welcome to Sunset Elementary School

Sunset Elementary is a transitional kindergarten through 5th grade school which serves nearly 800 students.  In addition to 29 classroom teachers we have 2 science teachers, 2 special day class teachers, and a physical education specialist. 

Sunset Elementary staff strive to create and maintain a learning environment that enables every student the opportunity to reach their highest potential academically, socially, and behaviorally.  We challenge our students with a strong academic program, offering differentiation at all grade levels.  Our goal at Sunset is to have all students aim for their highest potential and our motto is “Be Your Best in Every Way”. 

Parents are an integral part of Sunset, offering their support throughout campus.  Our morning running club, garden area, book club and art docent program are run by parent volunteers with remarkable success.  Additionally, parents regularly volunteer in their children’s classrooms as well as organize and participate in special school events.  Together we make Sunset great!
