I am shocked at the comment that the new principal is rude and difficult to deal with. My grandson attended Sundown last year (2010/2011) in Kindergarten.

I noticed the previous complaints about the office staff being rude. I have experienced this over the 4 years that my children have been there but I must say that I have seen a great improvement.

I really like Sundown this is my son's second year there. The only problem is that I do not think that the curriculum for kindergarten was challenging enough for the children, but other than that I really love the school..The parking police are brutal.

I agree that the staff at Sundown seem to have an unpleasant attitude. Especially the new principal. Don't really have much good to say about the school, most teachers are nice, the kindergarden teachers need more training on how to deal with students new to a stuctured enviornment, teachers and principals ...  Read more
