    "The School has a wonderful Dual Education Program for Spanish, (it also has French and German), I can only comment on Spanish. The School offers two subjects for gifted children (Math and Science). However, the criteria used to determine gifted is applied in most instances using the bilingual score. Most teachers are not properly trained for teaching gifted children. The regular curriculum is a repetitive style of teaching very much average when compared to other schools. The school environment is autocratic and unpleasant not appropriate for children raised with autonomy and independence . If you are interested in the language and your child is in the median score of the performance levels you are ok, if your child has learning differences or is gifted (130 or more), this is definitely not a good school for you."

    "This school is not for everybody, at least not for the Magnet Program. Your children must be either high achievers or gifted to keep going here. My son is not gifted, but he is very competitive. The amount of homework is reasonable, and parents need to supervise it obviously. Teachers e-mail you their homework in advance for the week coming. My son is in the Spanish Program, and we got the Spanish and English homework 95% of the time right on time. Parent involvement is amazing."

    "One of my children is in and I don t like that school. They stress out the kids with the fcat and charge them with a lot of homework. Kids are not kids anymore in that school. Some teachers are really good but some should not being teaching in magnet. The staff at the main office is really not nice. You will never feel welcome. My other child is in an other school that score as well as sunset but so much better..."

    "Great School. High academic standards. Great teachers. Parents are very involved. The bad thing is it is hard to get into since it is a lottery and that can frustrate a lot of people. My son has been in Sunset Elementary for two years and we are all very happy. They do give a lot of homework though."
