Greetings from the Principal……Dr. Marlene Leyte-Vidal


On behalf of the administration, faculty and staff of Sunset Elementary, I welcome you to our great school.


As an international school of excellence, Sunset offers an International Studies Magnet Program, a Controlled Choice International Education Program, and a science and mathematics gifted program. Students are immersed in an environment of learning, filled with exciting and engaging activities.  In this unique setting, families from around the world come together to create a dynamic school setting which values individual differences, while nurturing the minds and hearts of its students.


As a recipient of numerous awards and recognitions, the school offers its students a world-class education rich in the study of foreign languages, international studies, and advanced academic offerings.  Its highly qualified and professional staff works diligently to afford students ample opportunities to learn and explore academic subjects, the arts, athletics, and numerous extracurricular offerings.   Sunset’s enrichment and after-school-care program compliments the day program with exciting course offerings such as cooking, drama, ballet, judo, guitar, and a variety of sports to name a few.  It is no wonder our students love their school!


Recognized by the State of Florida as a Five Star School for its level of parent and community involvement, Sunset Elementary receives tremendous support from its parents, numerous parent associations, business and community members.  Together, we ensure that Sunset students receive the highest quality education available.  I take this opportunity to thank and congratulate our teachers, students, and parents for continuing to earn the State’s highest levels of student achievement.


As you browse our website you will see the many student centered events and activities that regularly take place in our school.  You will also see a school community striving for excellence in all that it does and dedicated to the success and care of its children.  I look forward to continuing to improve our school and to working with all our stakeholders to ensure that our students continue to thrive and achieve great things.
