Welcome to Sunset Hills! We are glad you’re here and look forward to having you become part of the Sunset Hills Learning Community. Sunset Hills Elementary School, established in 1974, has a reputation for providing an excellent learning environment for students. We pride ourselves on implanting a positive school wide climate where “Seagulls Soar and Character Counts!”
Sunset Hills Elementary School is a proud member of the NO EXCUSES UNIVERSITY (NEU) national network of schools. College readiness is not the expectation that all students will attend college, but instead, it is the belief that we must prepare all students to have a full range of postsecondary education and training options available to them after high school. We believe that elementary education is the foundation for all future academic achievement. All of our classrooms have adopted a College or University and we proudly wear a college bound No Excuse shirt every Monday to kick off each week.
All staff at Sunset Hills commit to a culture of “Universal Achievement” for all students. Visitors regularly comment about the friendly and welcoming environment of our school and the intense level of commitment every staff member has for each student’s success. Character Counts lessons are embedded in many activities on campus including our TRRFFC Thursday assemblies where we come together to celebrate good character, friendship, our community and school pride. Each TRRFFC Thursday closes with our students, staff and parents enthusiastically pronouncing our Sunset Hills Seagull Chant: "Sunset Hills is the Place to go. Setting goals is how we grow. Responsible is what we'll be. Fair, Caring and Trustworthy, Respectful Citizens, Respectful citizens of Sunset Hills. Seagulls!"
