20 Parent Reviews for Sunset Elementary School

We were wait-listed for 2 years and finally got in this year, and couldn't be happier. The PTA and teachers were so inviting and warm. My daughter has adjusted to the new school quickly with the great staff and parents.

My child is in second grade and we could not love this school more! The community is amazing--both in terms of raising funds for all sorts of extras (we have art, music, dance, gardening, technology, PE,a great library) but also in terms of making the school feel inclusive and vibrant.

Sunset is a terrific school -- one of it's biggest strengths is it's sense of community. Add that to great academics and a lovely campus and you really can't lose!

Sunset has been nicely renovated, has ocean views, a green schoolyard project underway, and will likely feed students into AP Giannini Middle...which is next to the school. A new public library and playground are being built adjacent to ...  Read more

You will not find a more inclusive, fun, vibrant, creative, diverse and dedicated school community in SF. We have PTA sponsored movie nights, garden work days, a Spring time Carnival, enrichment classes right after school, and caring teachers who deliver day in and day out. Ms. Lee, the principal, wears ...  Read more

I didn't expect how fantastic this school was. Sunset Elementary is definitely a school with mission and passion. The principal, Ms Sophie Lee, is awesome. She understands the students and the parents and strives the school to become a second home for the students. Teachers are welcoming and teach ...  Read more

Sunset Elementary is indeed a hidden gem in SFUSD. We transferred our 1st grader and 3rd grader to Sunset at the beginning of the 2007-08 school year and couldn't be happier. The community at the school is truly welcoming and it's apparent that everyone works hard to provide additional resources such ...  Read more
