What Makes Us Special
Many of the programs offered at Sunset View Elementary are non-existent at many San Diego public schools. Our extensive community of supporters work hard to ensure that we keep budget realities at bay while maintaining the resources necessary for our kids to excel. Your generosity helps to secure the programs that continue to make a difference for our children.
Kids First is focused on providing children with hands-on opportunities to experience art, music, poetry,dance and theatre. Our Visual and Performing Arts (VAPA) program, Poetry program and volunteer-run Art Corps, inspire personal creativity and play a pivotal role in developing our youth.
Science and Technology
Sunset View is taking an innovative approach to the future and Kids First is paving the way. Sunset View is embracing a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering
and Mathematics) learning initiative based on national standards. Your donation will help Kids First provide the children at Sunset View with educational materials,
cutting-edge tools and computer-based technology in order to stay on the forefront of scientific education.
Increased class sizes drastically limits the time our teachers can spend with each student. Kids First has made it a priority to fund additional teachers and/or
teaching assistants to help improve student to teacher ratios and class sizes.
A Safe & Healthy Learning Environment
Your contribution enables Kids First to adequately fund educational and supplemental programs that promote character and well being. Initiatives include: Running
Club, Organic Gardens, Sun protection, Campus beautification and Facility improvements.
