Sundance Elementary School Mission Statement and Vision

By working hard, we maintain academic rigor while fostering a love for life-long learning, resulting in independent thinkers and problem solvers.

By being kind, we provide a safe and nurturing environment where a competent, caring and responsible community embodies the qualities of CHARACTER COUNTS!

By dreaming big, we encourage creative solutions and lay the foundation for post-secondary success, celebrating achievements along the way.

By making no excuses, we achieve success for all.


Our vision at Sundance is a concept called Wildcat College. Through this vision, we have created a school culture that actively involves parents, students, and staff in each child’s educational journey from Kindergarten through high school and beyond. Critical to the success of our vision is a strong parent education program which educates parents on the programs at Sundance, keys to success in middle and high school, as well as strategies on how to get into and afford college. Additionally, all Sundance staff are trained in AVID methodology so that each child is taught the life-long skills necessary to be college ready.
