  • I am an alumni of this school also. My kindergarten teacher was the awesome Ms. Hibbs. Mr. Neal was my 1st grade teacher. I had the funny Mr. Miranda for my last three years(4th 5th and 6th). Everyone of my teachers was great at their job. I love them all and miss them so much! Your child will have a great experience here. I promise. The principal for my last year was new, but I'm sure she has quite a lot of experience now.

  • I was a student at sunset elementry from 1962 until 1965. John Flores was my 6th grade teacher and Mrs. Walters was my fourth grade teacher. Mr. Hackleman was the principle. He was the one who came to tell us of the assination of JFK. These were good people. I was not such a good kid, but they worked hard to help me. I am grateful for Sunset Elementry School. I hope you have kept up the good work.
