Having Fun!! 

But having a great school really is more than just school work - it is also having a sense of community. We are always looking for ways of bringing our school and community together whether it is putting together big community events or even some great annual traditions...fun is the name of the game!

Sunset Ridge put together the largest Arizona Centennial Parade in all of Deer Valley and fun was had by all!

Sometimes going "old school" is the best - we have had so much fun at our Bingo Nights held throughout the year.

Without a doubt everybody looks forward to our annual Field Days!
