    "I don't want the secret to get out that this is one great school. Phenomenal principal leading great teachers, and parents who truly want the best for their kids. I LOVE the e-block system that truly addresses all student needs, instead of focusing on the middle learner. Love that smart kids are offered more challenge. Appreciate the advanced technology available to our kids. My kid has definitely been wrapped in love while learning a great deal. Kudos to Mrs. Davis because she is one heck of a principal."

    "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."

    "Sad to say that this past year with the Manzanita merge, my children are gettting a second rate education. I might as well move to port hueneme and put them in public school there, no difference now. The poor teachers have to work twice as hard now. I cannot even believe how this school took such a downturn in one year. Now what? I am scared for my child's future. The language barriers are slowing down an already pathetic rate of education."
