CONGRATULATIONS to Sunset Hills, winners of the 2022 Lighthouse Literacy Award! District leaders shared the news with Sunset Hills staff Wednesday afternoon.

Congratulations to Sunset Hills, winners of the 2022 Lighthouse Literacy Award
This is a HUGE accomplishment, showing our parents, fellow staff members, and stakeholders the power of their investments into Westside Community Schools, and the success in our children as a result.
In a year still impacted by a pandemic, students at Sunset Hills Elementary are learning and growing to a great degree. For example: 
  • K-1 FAST Early Reading Composite: highest proficiency in the district.
    • 87% of students at/above benchmark & increased 16 percentage points from fall.
    • HIGH growth: 72% made typical/aggressive growth
  • 1-6 FAST CBMreading: highest GROWTH in the district since fall of 2020.
    • Increased 21 percentage points since fall of 2020 (greatest rebound from Covid).
    • 77% of students made typical/aggressive (purple) growth, which means they grew at/above the 40th percentile rank from fall to winter of this year.

  • 2-6 FAST aReading: highest proficiency in the district at 90%

We are extremely proud of our talented staff and students at Sunset Hills!
