    "Banyan is a recognized leader of technology, every classroom is equipment with an interactive SmartBoard. Students manipulate data and collaborate at these boards on a daily basis. Many mobile devices are in use across the campus. The teacher's at Banyan are trainers of the newer technologies for other teachers at other schools in the district. Parent involvement is second to none, the support parents give our students is a often the envy of others. The school community is simply awesome, every Friday morning we hold a Bobcat Assembly. The whole school, teachers and parents come together, say the pledge, sing our school song, hand out awards, etc. It is no surprise Banyan Elementary was awarded the California Distinguished School Award AGAIN last Spring (2014)."

    "Banyan Elem. just keeps getting better & better and I've been pretty happy to be here for about 9 years. Have tremendous leadership in Principal Laurie Davis and very dedicated teachers. Love the e-block program and the fact that the school strives for differentiated learning -- not just addressing middle learners. Very strong parent participation/volunteers. Fundraising has provided Smart Boards for all classrooms and keeps bringing in new technology. Really feel that my kids have been set up for educational success at this school."

    "All the teachers smile and it seems they like to be they like to come into work everyday. Principal Mrs. Davis works really hard to make sure all the needs of the students are being met. It was my experience the teachers communication was excellent. Every situation was addressed quickly. There is a large yard with plenty of room to play outside with beautiful views. I wish there was more of a focus on Gifted and Talented (GATE), at times my child was not challenged, not much room for using different strategies to keep kids engaged. There was a great GATE program that would get the kids together every few weeks that was enjoyable. SMART boards in all the classrooms is great to keep the kids attention. A wonderful school."

    "Banyan has gotten a new principal this school year. She has been a great addition! We have seen so many fantastic improvements on the the school overall and are happy to be a part of the journey. I have a 2nd grader and a kindergartener at Banyan and both have learned immensely from their teachers! The parental support at this school is INCREDIBLE! We have a extraordinary PTA that bends over backwards to provide many things for the students and teachers at the school like supplying every classroom with a brand new smart board! Our test scores may have gone down overall since the addition of students from Manzanita, however if you look at the breakdown of scores by group, you'll see our scores have gone up. Plus every school has an adjust period when in transition, our scores will be higher year after year now that we are settled in again. I am proud to be a part of Banyan and look forward to the years to come."

    "This was our first year at Banyan. We had heard that the school had been negatively impacted by the Manzanita merge the previous year but we saw nothing indicating that. My daughter had an absolutely excellent teacher. I was pleased with the way they handled different progression levels in her classroom. Banyan has a wonderful community feel to it. We were thrilled with our first year there."
