    Sunland Elementary is a good school to enroll your kids wanting a good education. However there are a few negative things about the school such as having no art class for the children and a bit of communication problems with the teachers but other than that the school is decent.

    This school is the best school in the district! The administration and staff are always available when you need them. The taechers are quality teachers and the principal & vice principal are very humble and liked in the community. Test scores are high and academics come first. The school moto is " At Sunland we do things right and we do it right the first time".

    I have two children who attended last year we do not live in the district but I can assure this school is great the teachers the principals are all great influences to the students. They are always around to speak with and the supervision is great all year around. Also the principals and teachers make sure the students leave the campus safe.

    Sunland school is a wonderfull school I have 3 children at sunland and have had 4 other children that have attended sunland in the past. The princapl cares for each and every child at this school and knows many of the students by name. he greets every child he sees as thay are walking to the class rooms in the morning .The teachers have been there for several years and are great teachers . The wish I would have is that the other schools in the district where as good . If your looking for a good school for you children sunland will not disappoint you . Mrs Valdez
