    "Wood Canyon is a great school with many patient staff and talent teachers. My kids were not only new to the school but also new to US and English. The teachers in WC helped them with great effort and they grow to love US and now speak fluent English within 1 year. The YMCA onsite is very organized and family feeling. Mr. Brian of YMCA love their kids so much and pays extra attention to his mission of manage well the Y. I am so grateful that WC is in Aliso Viejo."

    "Most teachers here are excellent. Of course every school has a few that are notorious yellers or are apathetic, but given the union protections out there, I don't think you can fault the school or principal for that. We have had 4 teachers and every one of them has been great. To address other reviewers concerns...the parking lot is run as organized as one can expect given the various drop off and pick up times at the school. Again, I don't think I have heard of a local school that doesn't have parking lot issues. As for the principal's commitment to timeliness, yes she is, but would one expect any less? Should we not be wanting to teach our kids the value of being on time? The assembly doors are held ONLY to show respect for the pledge of allegiance and reopened for latecomers. There is a new office manager this year who goes out of her way to help parents. I have seen office staff at restaurant nights supporting the school. It is unfortunate that the bad experiences of a few taint the conceptions of many and scare off good families that could bring so much to the school. This is a school with an innovative approach to teaching state standards through real life applications!"

    "The staff is so bad here. The front office is an unhappy bunch and my child has been going here for 2 years. Now, my child education is great here. But the staff, teachers included should practice what they teach."

    "My Son is in Kindergarten. He has a teacher that means well and has plenty of experience. Her practices are old school and she has a bland personality. The Principle also clearly means well but she is completely and utterly overwhelmed. The kids are missing out on so much. I look forward to not being at this school next year."
