Culture of Universal Achievement

At Sunset Hills Elementary School, Universal Achievement is the commitment we make to the academic accomplishments of all children. We hold our students to high standards, with the belief that they are capable learners who have the right to be prepared for college, careers, and a life of learning.  We are further committed to developing the well-being of our students by encouraging a balance of academic, social, and emotional growth. We commit to a language of hope to foster a positive school environment.  At Sunset Hills, all students, parents, and staff members are treated with courtesy and respect.  We acknowledge that challenges exist, but we refuse to accept excuses.


As a No Excuse University, we believe that every student deserves the opportunity to be educated in a way that prepares them for college if they so choose to attend.



We believe in building CHARACTER!
Trustworthiness ~ Fairness ~ Respect ~ Caring ~ Responsibility ~ Citizenship
