I really love Sunset because of the people. The sense of community that flows through the halls of Sunset amazes me every day. It is so easy to make friends, find support, and you will always feel safe and at home. Staff members of Sunset are always there to help, whether it's with school work, life advice, or just building a friendly relationship. Go apollos!
Review Sunset High School
The overall experience was pretty generic and nothing to special. The classes were packed and there was very little attention to be given to the students. School events were boring and people always kept to themselves but that not the schools fault. Teachers were kind of strict and grading was a nightmare and there was very little opportunity to raise your grade if need be. Assignments were boring and offered very little work, not only that but the academics were few and only gave few chance for those who didn't want computer courses.
They had lots of programs and advisers available for students to help them find colleges, guide them through the application process, explore majors, find internships, and sign ups to listen to guest speakers from different colleges. Having all the tools and help that I needed from them really helped me because before, I was lost and didn't know where to start. I would like to see change in diversity within the school because when I went there, I didn't feel like the diversification in the school was enough for everyone to feel like they belong.
