    My children attend Sunset and have since Pre-k and we believe that this is a wonderful school. I especially wanted to mention Mrs. Booth she is a great teacher Mrs. Watson as well. And last but not least Mr. Crosby is he is a wonderful teacher and these teachers really care about their students. All of the teachers are good but the above teachers are the ones who stand out in a crowd.
