Sunset High School is a comprehensive high school that serves approximately 2,300 students in grades nine through 12. At Sunset High School, our mission is to enhance the learning climate by providing quality education for students. Qualified and quality teachers challenge students academically and serve their diverse needs. We continually improve the performance scores of students as measured by the state and the district. In addition, we continue to increase parental and community involvement in our school.
Sunset High School prides itself on having the highest growth rate in student learning among comprehensive high schools in the district, according to the School Effectiveness Indices Report for 2007-2008. This past school year, we set our goals even higher and, again, Sunset High School saw gains on TAKS tests for Reading/English language arts, math, and science, including an increase in the commended rate for all tests. The school's graduation rate has increased steadily for the past four years.
Our school believes that collaboration with teachers, parents, and the community is essential to our students' success. Therefore, we will continue to seek ways in bringing all stakeholders together in an effort to move forward. We encourage knowledge, spirit and friendship.
