Hawk Pride

Welcome to Sunset Ridge!!
We opened our doors in August of 2003 and over the last 13 years we have proudly served our great community. From day one our focus has always been on providing the best educational experience for all of our students which is why we are an "A" rated school by the Dept. of Education. When making any school decisions we are always basing them on what is in the best interest of our students. Sunset Ridge has consistently been one of the top schools in Deer Valley in terms of AIMS test scores, district subject-based testing, as well as always achieving high labels from the Arizona Department of Education.
