    "As other parents have stated, yes this school looks good on paper but in reality, is not a "great school". Your child will learn the standards (reading, writing and math), but don't expect much exposure to non-core topics. I don't feel SPE provides out-of-the-box thinking or a truly nurturing environment for young elementary students. I agree that the school has a very sterile feeling and that overall, the administration (top down) is not open to new ideas/concerns. I have not seen flexibility with parents, yet I have seen "rules" bent for teachers or PTA staff. The focus of Sunset Palms is TEST SCORES: If you are seeking a multi-faceted, kid-friendly education, I'd suggest looking at other schools in the area. In addition, the school has become crowded, and next year it will be even worse."

    "I think overall it is pretty good. Many good teachers, though a few bad apples that the principal knows about, but they never get fired. Main gripe is teaching to the test, though I think this is happening district-wide. Also would like to see more computer instruction happening, across all grades. Science class seems to be mostly watching videos. Principal is very aloof to parents, does not have open door to parental concerns. Replace the principal and asst. principal with passionate people who care about the kids, and this would be a much better school."

    "Sunset Palms has proven to be an A rated school not only in terms of grades but as far as parental support, communication and charitable involvement in the community. The way it reaches out to all student and families in order to help those less fortunate has shown their commitment to the community, not only its' own school, but the neighboring schools."
