Sundown High School Reviews

I moved to this school when I was 10 years old, and I had never experienced the amount of support that this school offers anywhere else. The school is located in a town of about 1500 residents and all of the grades from kindergarten to twelfth grade are held within the same building. When there are football or basketball games or other school-related events, the entire town travels to watch and support. It’s an amazing, bittersweet feeling when your team travels to another town to play a football game and the visitor stands are packed while the home stands are half-empty. I love the atmosphere of the school and the community, and I am forever grateful to have gotten to experience my childhood here.

At Sundown High School, I was provided with a safe learning community with teachers who cared about me as a person and not just as a grade. Teachers and administration expect excellence from students at Sundown, and, consequently, students hold themselves to a higher standard. From athletics to UIL and marching band, our instructors push us to push ourselves so that we may succeed in whatever we put our mind to. Sundown has taught me the benefits of hard work. Also, our guidance counselor puts forth a tremendous effort to see that we are doing all we can to prepare for college. As for improvement, I would like to see Sundown offer a wider variety of art classes to accommodate our artistically inclined students.
This is a very good school academically and has great athletic programs and other extra curricular activities. The teachers allow the students to come in before school to get extra help, if needed. I believe the attitude of the majority of students towards the Sundown staff is lacking.
