Sunset Mesa Schools
- 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.

If you have a child who sings, you might want to consider a choir school. In the United States, most of these schools are day schools.
It seems to be highly likely that the COVID-19 virus will spread to the United States. We look at step schools and parents can take to protect themselves from this highly contagious virus.
This article aggregates all the articles I have written about running a small private school. Use it as a handbook and a reminder of things you should look at from time to time.
