Sundown has an excellent public school and a great community that bans together to support each other and the students that attend Sundown High School. Sundown is a school were mostly all students are in a sport or in multiple, but the kids are student athletes. The kids are students before they're athletes. School work and grades are more important to the teachers and coaches and that will always be a first before sports. Sundown High School prepares students for college and the real world. Past students always say they were beyond prepared for the college level and they were glad to attend and graduate from Sundown. The community and the people of Sundown are absolutely amazing. They come together to support everyone from athletes to students participating in UIL events. No one is ever left on their own in Sundown. We ban together to help those in need in their time of crisis. Sundown is an all around great town for everyone and a great place to live.

Sundown is an a very small and amazing community where everyone looks out for each other. Kids are able to experience summer days similar to the movie "The Sandlot". The school, in my opinion, is what makes Sundown so great. They set high standards for all students and will not accept anything less.
Sundown is a small town with a family friendly atmosphere. It reminds me of when I was a child in my small town back in California. Nice folks, polite and helpful.
