Welcome to Our School

Located in Buckeye, Arizona, Desert Sunset Elementary is part of the Saddle Mountain Unified School District. Our school lies at the core of one of the fastest growing communities in the country! Whether you’re looking to explore a bit of local history at the Buckeye Valley Museum, or seeking adventure in the great outdoors at Skyline Regional Park, there’s so much to see and do in our town—and Desert Sunset students are learning and growing at the heart of it all!


Our private special education preschool program is designed specifically for current Desert Sunset students. We have trained instructors who identify students in need of special education accommodations. These instructors create a unique learning plan to fit each individual’s educational needs. For more information about this program, please reach out to the school office.

Before- And After-School Care

We have partnered with the City of Buckeye to provide before- and after-school care to our Coyote families. The B.A.S.E. program runs Monday through Friday from 6:00 a.m. until the start of school, and from the end of school until 6:30 p.m. For more information and to download a registration packet, please visit the City of Buckeye’s B.A.S.E page.
