SCHOOLS IN SUNDANCE
All of Sundance’s schools are located within the community, offering the unique opportunity for students to pursue their entire K–12 education in one area. This creates a closer-knit community where children can walk to and from school and enjoy a similar peer group, forming long lasting relationships within their home neighbourhood.
