Sundown Elementary School Reviews
Sundown is a wonderful elementary school. So far, my son who is now in second grade has had great teachers ranging from K to 2nd. Their support staff and PTO are excellent too.
I think my school is wonderful but it has the best teacher ever and her name is Mrs. Grundy she is the best teacher I have.
We recently moved to Lancaster from out of state. Our son had many new adjustments including starting Kindergarden. Mrs. Larson is a fantastic teacher, extremely kind and even more patient. She is consistant with recognition as well as holds the children accountable when needed. My son has developed his writing and mathematic skills and I feel is more than ready to move to the First Grade.
I appreciate Mrs. Larson and the staff at Sundown for guiding my son. I can't wait for my 2 year old to start at Sundown, hopefully with Mrs. Larson!!
