    "Just completed our first year here. I was very pleased at first with the how much the school and the teachers seemed to care about the students well-being. They did do a fabulous job helping my children feel welcome. Children were nice enough. However, I felt too much emphasis was placed on the PSAT testing and too much preparation for it. What they had been teaching up until then should have had them plenty prepared. You don't teach to a test. Also, I found my sons fifth grade teacher to be lacking in communication skills when it came to the parents. Since we were new we were left out of the loop and therefore felt forgetten....so much so that I was not aware that parents were invited to their 5th grade promotion ceremony and I had missed it. Needless to say we were crushed. Overall, it was an ok year but we have had much better in our prior school."

    "We recently moved to the area and my daughter is new to Shamona Creek. Her teacher is wonderful. She is great at replying right away and works quickly to resole any queries we have. She offered additional math homework problems to meet my daughter's skill level. The school works with each student as an individual which is wonderful."
