Sunset Middle School Ratings & Reviews

My daughter has never shined so bright! The faculty and administration at SMS is involved, engaged and consistent. Teachers have reached out when my daughter seemed off, and worked together to solve conflicts and situations that have arose over the last 2 years. The principal, Ms. Macy, is extremely involved with all of her students, I wouldn't be surprised if she knew every child's name by the 1st month of school :) The art and music programs, as well as their teachers, are exceptional, my daughter entered a year late but plays grade level orchestra and is 4th chair. This is a school for EVERYONE and they do a wonderful job of creating a sense of community from the moment the kids enter the school. My daughter is an auditory learner and her learning style has been accommodated throughout the classroom curriculum. My daughter has a fair amount of choice in what types of projects she can complete to show her comprehension (examples: movies, collages, essays, etc.) I worked for SVVSD yeras ago and had a good idea of what my options were for middle school. Most of them had a grade of "c" or worse besides 2, which were not options for multiple differing reasons including previous attendance. We were looking for a school with more diversity and a place where the social-emotional needs of my daughter(s) would be met. Our expectations have not only been met but have been exceeded, and we are beyond happy with SMS!!

We moved our son to this school, though he was hesitant. The principal gave us a tour and really connected with my son. He's developing strong relationships with his teachers, is excited to go to class every day, and is showing us a whole new side we've never seen! I have talked to other parents, and it's just a great community school. We came here after a bad experience at a local charter school - same level of academics, nothing tough, but for some reason, the stress levels were ridiculous and the parents were always so angry.

We recently moved to Longmont, leaving Adam's 12. I came in one afternoon to pick up my daughter and felt the principal was dressed completely inappropriately in a white tank top and short jean skirt. She did have a sweater tied over her shoulders, which really drew more attention to how tight her shirt was. My daughter later told me the AP was talking to the police officer about a student by name in the office near the lobby while using profanity! She named the student and even told me what he'd done. Additionally, at PTC, my daughter told her teacher she wasn't comfortable sitting next to a particular young male. The teacher stated she would move him, but there wasn't much else she could do. . She later mentioned to me that "administration doesn't really support discipline". She will be attending Altona next year, which causes a strain in transportation.

My son loves the string orchestra at this school. We were previously in a private religious school. The Music and arts were sadly deficient at the private school, as was the sports. This school takes the arts seriously. Recent studies say the arts increase intelligence for life. The acedemics are great and the principal is very good.

SMS is a great school. As a Niwot community parent, many chose to go to Altona since it is new. Sunset is where my husband went to middle school so we never even looked at another school. We are so happy with the administration, teachers and staff. Our three daughters are very different and have all found a great home at Sunset. The music program is wonderful, but so are the programs for those that are not musically inclined. We have one daughter that was in all advanced courses and two that were half and half regular and advanced. All of the teachers are amazing and work with the inidvidual student. We cannot be happier with our choice to stay with our district school and my husband's alma mater.
