    "We recently moved to Longmont, leaving Adam's 12. I came in one afternoon to pick up my daughter and felt the principal was dressed completely inappropriately in a white tank top and short jean skirt. She did have a sweater tied over her shoulders, which really drew more attention to how tight her shirt was. My daughter later told me the AP was talking to the police officer about a student by name in the office near the lobby while using profanity! She named the student and even told me what he'd done. Additionally, at PTC, my daughter told her teacher she wasn't comfortable sitting next to a particular young male. The teacher stated she would move him, but there wasn't much else she could do. . She later mentioned to me that "administration doesn't really support discipline". She will be attending Altona next year, which causes a strain in transportation."

    "My son loves the string orchestra at this school. We were previously in a private religious school. The Music and arts were sadly deficient at the private school, as was the sports. This school takes the arts seriously. Recent studies say the arts increase intelligence for life. The acedemics are great and the principal is very good."

    "SMS is a great school. As a Niwot community parent, many chose to go to Altona since it is new. Sunset is where my husband went to middle school so we never even looked at another school. We are so happy with the administration, teachers and staff. Our three daughters are very different and have all found a great home at Sunset. The music program is wonderful, but so are the programs for those that are not musically inclined. We have one daughter that was in all advanced courses and two that were half and half regular and advanced. All of the teachers are amazing and work with the inidvidual student. We cannot be happier with our choice to stay with our district school and my husband's alma mater."

    "SMS is a very very unorganized school. They do not keep their students in order and the teachers are only there for the paycheck. I never liked SMS even when i first started to go there i knew it wouldn't be a good school because all of my friends hated it. The teachers didn't care about the students, they looked for misbehaving students every where they went. The homework was to much for me to handle. I didn't like this school at all."

    "Moving our daughter to Sunset Middle School from the local charter school was the best thing we could have done for her. Whereas before she was completely stressed out, totally inundated with homework and miserable we now have our happy, learning, well adjusted daughter back. The classes are challenging without being overwhelming. She feels like the teachers understand her - not that she is just a test score so that the school looks good. The music program is fabulous. It wasn't that the Charter school was too hard academically it was that they treated the kids like little robots that were to be put in system. Sunset sees the individual and works to meet the challenges of each child. Principal Macy is the leader every school should have."
