Sunset High School Reviews
Sunset High School has a fantastic community and with that comes a lot of unique opportunities. The community is perhaps that most profound aspect that comes together to make this school. While this benefits the school, along with its rigorous class options, and the group of teachers, the school falls behind the competition with its old infrastructure. Overall, the school has many great parts which elevate it above average, but can not keep up with the new and technologically-advanced schools.
The community of Sunset High School is so strong! With teachers that care and students that often support one another, I feel so grateful to be a part of this group of learners.
SHS is a great community with many teachers who go above and beyond to help students learn. The dances are fun, the assemblies, school rallies and motivational speakers are awesome and leadership, Band, Choir, Theatre, Crew, Clubs and sports teams are downright amazing!
