    I love sunset christian academy. It is a small school which I like. And everyone from the teachers principal to the office staff are very friendly and helpful. I am very glad I swichted my daughter from chartter school to this wonderful school.

    I absolutely love SCA! This school has had such a positive impact on the lives of my daughters. I appreciate the high academic standards but the love and encouragement my girls receive impresses me the most. There is a real sense of family. I wouldn't trade our school for any other.

    AMEN - I agree with the previous comments - God Bless SCA - My oldest daughter came from another school - started SCA last year and she loved it - She was in the Principal's Honor Roll and now my little one will be attending SCA - I am a very HAPPY PARENT.

    Whoever comes new to this school will be disappointed pretty soon. You have no idea what CHANGE means. I think we can have a pretty good idea with our former US president. Keep it up! Other schools will be benefiting from this.

    I disagree with the comments about the new pre-school director Mrs. Pilar. She has helped my daughter adjust to her new school. She has made a few changes but they were for the well-being of the students. It's unfair to judge someone for studying business administration - Mrs. Pilar also as a background in education as noted in her bio - http //www.sunsetchristianacademy.com/information/administration.html. Keep up to great work Mrs. Pilar. The negative comments are being made by disgruntled family members of those teachers who will not be returning in the upcoming school year. I am very happy with my daughter's education as well as the school Pastor and staff.

    I am absolutely agree with the last negative comments. This school is not what used to be. Theres a lack of professionalism and leadership by the principal he seems more a public relations than a true leader and its unaceptable the rewarded bullying situation.

    I give one star just because several good teachers but in overall as a father i am extremely disappointed with the administration and managing of this school. My daughter has suffered of bullying all long the past school year to the point to need professional help. We took the case with the principal and the pastor of the school but they don't honor the school Policy about safety. They prefer forgiveness than prevent dangerous situations to the students. The most incredible thing was to see how the bullie student was rewarded with the principal honor roll in the awards ceremony at the end of the school year. Parents stay away from this school if you expect safety for your children.

    Very dissapointed with SCA this year. I have a daughter in elementary and my little one in pre-school. My concerns have been with the pre-school program. The teachers are absolutely amazing loving caring and dedicated to bad I cannot say the same about its new director. This school has changed alot and it is so sad to see all that is going on. As a parent of SCA for 5yrs we do not see us returning the following year. If changes are not made within the administration they will be alot of people leaving.

    I have been a parent of this school since 1992. Starting from my eldest who is 19. She started when she was 2 years old until she graduated in 8th. Grade. My 12 year old and my 5 year also started attending since they were 2. I can say with all honesty that I feel that my children have received an excellent education that has prepared them for a future full of opportunities. My eldest daughter is now in her second year of College and I know that Sunset Christian Academy has had a big part in her growth educationally as well as spiritually. The teachers have always been supportive loving and nurturing throughout all these years. I have seen my children excel and the love they have for God. I fully support the staff and am very proud of them. They are doing a great job.

    My daughter is very happy at the school and the teachers. I like the school teaching but since last year they have implemented new changes not so positive for the parents. First in this tought economic times they have decided to change all the uniforms making the parents spend more money second the lunches the raise the price not only is non resonable but unhealthy!... Very unhealty. Now the drop of and pick up of the kids it may seem safetier according to the staff. But it will be very complicated once again for us the parents the traffic after school will increase this is not a very good idea. This changes have became too often to soon complicated for us all the parents. I am very happy with the teachings but the leadership i am questioning!... Is this only about money or making it simple and focus on the teaching !>>

    I am dissapointed too with the amount of kids in kindergarten - 25. Also I do not like the car drop - off / pick-up system it is time consuming and it makes worst the already present traffic chaos in Sunset entrance. On top of that the school is now 'Peanut Butter Free'. The school could make special accomodations for the allergic child instead of sacrificing the majority of the students and parents. The food that is offered for lunch is mostly 'junk food'

    My son started in Sunset Christian last year for Pre-K 4. The teachers are wonderful and the principal is super nice! This year i am a little dissapointed with the amount of students in Kinder 25 per class. Being that this is not a public school is the amount of kids per class is too much. Never seen a secuity in grounds. Concerned Parent

    My daughter is in PK4 class and has gained so much knowledge this past year. Her teacher Mrs. Linda is fabulous. My daughter loves to go to school and wants to attend on Saturday and Sunday also. The program for reading is great it teaches them phonics and she is now reading all three letter words. They visit the chapel once a week and she sings songs about God and ask lots of questions about Him. This school is great!!!

    My sister and I started out at SCA in 1998 when I was in first grade and she was in Pre-K. I went all the way through till 8th grade. The staff is the best and cares so much for the students. I grew up with my class from first grade and we became a big family. I graduated in 2006 and I really miss it there. SCA was a part of my life I will never forget. I highly recommend this school to anyone.

I would really recommend this school.

    My son just started 2nd grade. And so far it has been a wonderful experience with the teacher students and principle. I love the fact that he is studying Christian bible. Everyone in the office is helpful. This school is very loving.
