There are many ways Sunset High School strives to recognize student academic achievement as well as good citizenship and a positive attitude. Every few months, teachers submit their nominations for student recognition called Student Stand-Outs. Students are presented Certificates of Appreciation, honoring a wide variety of student achievements, presented by Principal Ayala in front of the whole school. We also host student Rewards Luncheons, supported by the local community,where students are rewarded for their efforts, both academically and for their demonstrated efforts in achieving personal goals and attributes that help them succeed at Sunset HS and in life. At the end of the school year, Sunset has our annual Sunset Awards Night, typically hosted by a local organization, where students receive numerous special awards, in addition to very heartfelt accolades presented by our dedicated Sunset teachers.
