Sunset Mesa Schools, Inc is providing a quality educational foundation for children in Preschool through Grade 5 since 1948.
Sunset Mesa students participate in a broad range of intellectual, artistic, and physical activities.
They are challenged to become productive, responsible, and caring people by learning sound values, compassion, and ethical behavior.
Our students are encouraged to think and act independently, develop good study habits, solve problems, and think critically.
It is our purpose to give children a strong foundation upon which to build their future educational and life experiences--an investment which will pay interest for a lifetime.
At Sunset Mesa, we believe in the positive value of our students' mistakes.
Learning from mistakes, rather than feeling ashamed, is an important part of an education here.
The key is that students keep trying--the attitude and work ethic that this inspires is a necessary ingredient in the recipe for success beyond Sunset Mesa and throughout life.
